Nokia X1-00 announced, is a budget friendly music-oriented phone
The biggest news about Nokia in the last few months seems to be the manufacturer's adoption of Windows Phone as its primary smartphone strategy, but that's not to say that it won't continue to spawn budget-friendly phones for the time being.

The Nokia X1-00 is just another example of that - it's to cost less than $50 before taxes and carriers' subsidies when it's released in April, and is another Nokia music-oriented phone.

This handset promises really, really loud music, while at the same time Nokia claims it won't cause sound distortion at higher volumes. The manufacturer goes as far as to claim it can even be used as your main music player at home. The build-in storage is not mentioned, but the Scandinavian manufacturer says the Nokia X1-00 will have a slot for up to a 16GB microSD card.

From everything stated above it's pretty obvious that this phone will target the customers in the developing world, and to reiterate that Nokia has added a dedicated torch as one of the handset's perks - for places in which electricity is unreliable, this may be a handy feature. It seems that for the same reason the Nokia X1-00 has a maximum standby time of 61 days. Moreover, it offers five different phone books, so five different people can use the same Nokia X1-00.

The phone will run Symbian Series 30 platform, and is set to be available in selected markets in Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa in April this year.
