A quick glance at the Nokia Canada website today reveals that the X2-01 is coming here. No details on which carrier or pricing but this is nothing like the spectacular N9 that was recently announced. This full QWERTY S40 device has a 2.4-inch display (320 x 240), VGA camera with QVGA video recording at 24fps and holds up to 8GB with a microSD card. That’s about it, but Nokia does state you’ll be able to get live Facebook and Twitter updates on your home screen.

    I don’t know why would anyone buy this when already available Nokia C3 is superior in specs: X2-01 doesn’t have WiFi support, only has VGA (0.3 Mpix) camera vs C3 with WiFi and 2Mpix camera and a lot longer battery life. And I am pretty sure that X2-01 won’t come under $100 so it’s not worth getting over C3.

    Well according to the specifications page it’s quad-band GSM and lacks any 3G connectivity. So clearly it will arrive at Robbers or one of its sub-brands as an entry-level messaging device.

    Wouldn’t even take it for free, unless I could send it back in time

    Device looks good and solid. Is good for most of us who don’t want to control their lives by the iBlings.

    I’ll use a real phone instead.

      @azileath I have an iPhone too, but phones like the Nokia X2-01 and the Nokia C3 are perfect for people who just need to talk and text on a reliable no-frills phone (there are many people without data plans, don’t use apps, etc.). They are affordable and good at what they’re made to do. The X2-01 is no less of a “real phone” than an iPhone or Android device.

      What’s with the iPhone fanboys lately? Sorry, but the iPhone is just not for everyone, face it already.

      Send from my VASTLY SUPERIOR Android phone.

    I just picked one of these up as an unlocked quad-band phone for travelling to Europe. Sure 3G and Wi-Fi would be nice, but at $80 (newegg.ca) unlocked vs. $170 for a C3 it’s not competing in the same market. It certainly shouldn’t be compared to an iPhone or Android phone. The price was comparable to a voice only quad-band, so I consider the browser, email, simple apps and full keyboard a bonus.

    At 1/8 of the price, Nokia reception quality, batteries life, reliable quality are exceptional. Now that’s a REAL phone. Again,an i-Idiot will never figure It Out. Sad case! LOL

    Looks like a nice phone, but by no means smashing the competition. In short, nothing special here.

    Nokia USA lists the X2-01 in its online store for $79.00, while T-Mobile USA sells it at US$99.99 before any discount / subsidy.
