Looks like Finnish giant Nokia is all set to tap ultra low-cost handset market with its latest release, the Nokia X. The Nokia X is built on Android open source software, and it is definitely one of the most awaited handset to be launched in India this year.
And today, the phone has been listed on Saholic.com, alongside its retail price. Nokia has yet to launch the device in India; however, the online retailer is already selling the device in advance. Further, the Nokia X will be made available in Black, Red, Yellow and Cyan colors.
Just the other day, the Nokia X went on sale (unofficially) at a price tag of Rs. 8,500 in India. The retailer even promised to deliver the phone on March 15. Unfortunately, the listed price was later removed citing unknown reasons.
