Nokia X2-02

 Nokia X2-02 Available now
1st December 2011

The Nokia X2-02 is the third variation of this particular handset, following on from last year's original Nokia X2 and the unlovely Nokia X2-05.

It might seem that these old products are hanging around Nokia's line-up like a bad smell, but the X2-02 is a rather interesting device with some useful features compared to the original X2, and with a price ticket of just €60 then it looks like pretty decent value overall.

This is a dual-SIM device, so it can support two active SIM cards at the same time. The second SIM card can be hot swapped via a slot in the side. There is also a built-in SIM manager that can support up to five different SIMs.

The X2-02 is a dual-band GSM device that supports GPRS and EDGE data, so it is hardly a speed demon when it comes to connectivity. On the front is a simple 2.2" 240 x 320 pixel TFT display, on the back is a basic 2 megapixel camera.

It gets more interesting when you see that the X2-02 also has an MP3 player, Bluetooth 2.1, has a microSD slot and an FM radio. One very unusual feature in a phone of this price is an FM transmitter, so you can play music from the phone onto a stereo or car audio system.. or even another phone with an FM receiver.

 Nokia X2-02 Another slightly interesting feature is that the FM antenna is integrated into the case, so you don't need to plug in the headphones to act as an aerial. The speaker on the X2-02 is very loud (rated at 106 phon) so it makes a useful standalone radio or music player.

Although this is only a 2.5G device, it does come with the new Nokia Browser which is designed to optimise the web over slow links. There is also support for social networking and instant messaging, plus Nokia Life Tools in certain markets. The X2-02 runs the new facelifted version of Series 40, and although it isn't a smartphone you can still download Java applications to run on it.

The relatively large 1020mAh battery gives up to 9.7 hours talktime and 18.5 days standby time. The X2-02 weighs 93 grams and measures 113 x 50 x 15mm. Of note is that the standard sales package includes a stereo wired headset but no microSD card.

The Nokia X2-02 should be available by the end of the year in a wide variety of colours.
