Nokia launches C2-01 and X2-01 budget phones

If finances are tight or you really don't need an 'all singing and dancing' high-end smartphone, Nokia might have just the thing. Or indeed things - the Nokia C2-01 and X2-01 budget phones.

Neither of the handsets are likely to turn heads, but if you're looking for something solid and dependable, it's almost certainly here. Acccording to Crave, the headline feature of the C2-01 is 3G connectivity, this being the cheapest way to get a fast connection from Nokia. Aside from that, this Symbian Series 40 device has an alphanumeric keypad, 3.2-megapixel camera, 2-inch screen, an FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity and up to 16GB of storage via a memory card. Look out for it in the first quarter of next year for around €£60.

The X2-01 is pitched at social networkers, most obviously because of that built-in QWERTY keyboard and a new 'communities' app that will allow you to see your Facebook friends' updates from the home screen, as well as post updates and photos.

You'll also get a media player, FM radio and access to the Ovi Music service, along with a 2.4-inch QVGA screen, a VGA camera, and support for memory cards of up to 8GB. Downside? Just GPRS and Edge connectivity. Look out for it in the coming weeks for £70.
