Nokia today announced that the Dual SIM Nokia X1-01 and Nokia C2-00 would soon both be on sale in Pakistan. These low-end, feature rich devices are aimed for masses that will help Nokia to snatch back its market share from Chinese-handsets.

Both models offer the most convenient and intuitive experience available for switching between SIM cards– without compromising on features and fun.

“The Nokia X1-01 and Nokia C2-00 pack more memory, better battery life and far richer SIM change and entertainment features than other Dual SIM products currently in the market,” said Imran Khalid Mehmood, Country General Manager, Nokia Pakistan & Afghanistan.

  • As mentioned above:
    “These low-end, feature rich devices are aimed for masses that will help Nokia to snatch back its market share from Chinese-handsets.”

    I don’t think so because if Nokia really wants to snatch its share from Chinese-handsets, they would decrease prices of these low-end handsets! Who will pay Rs.5200 for Nokia C-2? It must me round about at Rs.4000~4200.

    A dream by Nokia to beat Chinese handsets is impossible. Chinese handsets are coming with 4 sims (all active at a time), wifi, etc etc and etc. i am a fan of Nokia but they cannot beat Chinese handsets.

  • M.Fahad

    NOKIA LAGS ONE OPTION : BOTH SIMS SHOULD BE ACTIVE ONCE THEY ARE ON THE BACK OF YOUR PHONE.NO SWITCHING AND DOOR SWAPING. WAKE UP NOKIA . “CHINA DOES IT” I DON”T THINK NOKIA NEED A ROCKET SCIENCE TO DO IT.

    • ADEEL

      MR FAHAD. KINDLY READ THE REVIEW OF THE SETS AND ALSO CHECK THE SPECIFICATION YOURSELF FIRST BEFORE GIVING A BAD COMMENT AS IN BOTH OF THE SETS THE SIMS ARE DUAL ACTIVE ( BOTH SIMS ACTIVE AT THE SAME TIME )

      • Jamal Shah

        Where it is written that both SIMs can be active at the same time? I think you actually didn’t read this and hitting him for the same.

  • Bahadur Ramejo

    nokia can not defeat china people like high sound quality and china has that ability

  • Amir

    very nice cell phone from nokia.
    and you are going very well ProPakistani.
    keep it up.
    i very much like your website.
    and daily visit it

  • Is both sims are work together or one at a time?

  • Ikram Musawir

    good news that finally “C-2” has been launched, although not so impressive at all. Coz a phone with dual sim is not a very surprising feature at all. And it really let down nokia for delaying it for a longgggggg time. I heve’nt read the full specifications of x1-01, if it resembles the “x1” then its great (atleast specs vise). I”ve been using nokia phones since 2004 and i am always try to get the latest ones. I’ve used a lot of featurephones and huge number of smartphones but i am really sorry to say that nokia always disappointed me. Nokia is best in the world for its hardware but in software side its simply failed. After a month or two you will have to suffer with many many problems like hanging, restarting, getting slower day by day even after installing the latest updated anti virus software. Specially if u r a surfer then u”ll have to face these problems in new set very soon. Cant say anything about these new phones untill its available here in Pakistan and untill i dont use both or one of them. I’ve observed that nokia’s new phones are not good at all and has bunches of problems in it. Nokia is relatively good in simple basic and feature phones than smartphones bussines. The region where we live Nokia is considerd the best phone manufacturer so almost every one is using one or other handset of nokia so i hope many of my friends will agree with me. Am i right???
