June 24, 2014: Microsoft Devices has launched Nokia X2 for around Rs 8100 (99 euros) today, and soon the device will be available in select countries.
Navigating around the Nokia X2 is easy, thanks to Fastlane and the home and back buttons – the latter providing quick-and-easy multitasking support.
Fastlane makes it easy to see what events you’ve got coming in the future, what apps you’ve used recently, as well as the different tasks you’ve performed throughout any given day, and with just one tap, you’ve launched an app or responded to a notification.
The Nokia X2 is also equipped with another navigation option; the brand-new ‘apps list’, which keeps your home screen clear for your most used apps, bringing Nokia X2 in line with the existing Lumia experience.
More personalisation options are now available on the start screen, too, thanks to the tile color-picker feature.
With a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor on-board, everything you do is razor-sharp and responsive. And with a bigger 4.3-inch ClearBlack display, all of your apps, games, photos and videos are brought to life with aplomb.
