Nokia Launches X2 Cell Phone

In an official blog post today, Nokia unveiled the X2, a musically inclined smartphone the company says will be out before the end of June. Where exactly it will debut remains to be seen, but for what it's worth, the announcement was made in India, so we'd be surprised if this one ships in the States, at least initially.

The candybar shaped cell phone comes equipped with dual speakers, dedicated music keys, FM stereo, and support for up to 16GB of storage via microSD, so there's plenty of room to store your music collection. It's also thin (13mm) and light (81g), so buyers shouldn't have too much trouble toting it around like an MP3 player.

Other features include a 2.2-inch QVGA screen, Bluetooth 2.1, full speed USB 2.0, 3.5mm headphone connector, Opera Mini browser, FM radio, and a 5MP camera with LED flash and digital zoom.

Nokia says the X2 will carry an MSRP of €85 (about US$112).
