As the lifestyle of people changes with time, they are becoming more demanding not only in terms of their expectation from life but are also looking for accessories that support such a lifestyle.

Haseeb Ihtisham, Head of Marketing, Nokia Pakistan & Afghanistan said,

Today Nokia is proud to present its X2-01 device in Pakistan and is a milestone in our commitment to connect the next billion to the web. We understand that an increasing number of Pakistani youth loves music and being social, they want to have more variety of capabilities in their Mobile phone that support this need.

Nokia X2-01 is the most affordable QWERTY phone to date which has in store not just the ultimate messaging experience but also the ease of staying connected with your social circle.

As befits an X series device, there’s also a healthy emphasis on music. There’s one click access to music, the media player and FM. There’s also Ovi Store, of course, for fresh apps. Ovi Life Tools will also be available in some territories. It comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA screen and a VGA camera on the back. The Nokia X2-01 measures 119.4 x 59.8 x 14.3mm and weighs 107.5g. It supports memory cards up to 8GB. There’s no WiFi and only GPRS/EDGE data, but that’s compensated for by the low price.

“Our messaging devices were initially targeted towards business users but realizing consumer demand we have changed that,” said Imran Khalid Mehmood, Country General Manager, Nokia Pakistan & Afghanistan. “People want the best messaging and social networking experiences on an affordable device. Translating our vision in to actions Nokia is constantly striving to bring the best for its consumers both in terms of devices and solutions. The Nokia X2-01 will enhance the youth lifestyle and let them stay connected all the time with chat, Facebook and IM at the most affordable price.”

You can use Opera Mini and Ovi Browser beta for internet browsing, which is nice. Phone can do photos and videos. A lot of applications are available in Ovi Store. Besides, this is a great music device: you can listen to your own MP3s and also to FM radio stations (it will even display song titles in radio!). Quick, stable and well thought-through. And price is more than affordable! Light and looks cool. Nice job Nokia!.
