Nokia X2 lands in India later than expected, but isn’t it too late?

Nokia’s attempt at building Android smartphones was scrapped by Microsoft after it gained complete control over the Finnish brand’s business and the last remaining fragment of the former’s project is the X2. Although similarly affordable handsets take no time at all to set foot in India, this one has has made its own long, meandering way into the country.

Anyway, it’s here and it’s looking for consumers who want a low-end dual SIM Android smartphone running a custom Lumia-like ROM called the Nokia X software platform 2.0. On the hardware front, this Rs 8699 handset offers a 4.3-inch ClearBlack display which reproduces its visuals in a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels.
