The internet was abuzz with rumours today of a new low cost phone from Nokia. Its called the X2-01 and is an S40 phone with a proper hardware QWERTY keyboard, but is 2-G only.

Why hello there!!

Other rumoured specs include a 2.44″ QVGA screen, microSD card slot, a 3MP Camera, FM radio and Bluetooth. The X2-01 also has two dedicated keys, one for messaging and the other for music.

The Wi-Fi is an interesting omission, but since Nokia is aiming for a low cost phone it seems like a good idea. While none of the specs are set in stone, the X2-01 running on S40 is a bit of a downer. We will bring you more details once the official specs are announced.
