Nokia X launched in India

| |

As promised by Nokia India, they have released Nokia X today in India. Priced at 8,599 INR, it will be available online and offline starting from today. Nokia X was unveiled by Nokia on February 24, during the MWC at Barcelona in Spain, along with Nokia X+ and XL.
Nokia X sports a 4-inch WVGA LCD display (480 X 800p, 233ppi). The dual-sim phone is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 512MB RAM. It comes with 4GB internal storage expandable up to 32GB via microSD card.
Nokia X features a 3MP fixed-focus camera and doesn't sport an LED flash. In terms of connectivity options, the phone offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and A-GPS. It comes with a 1,500mAh removable battery and the company claims a talk time of 10.5 hours on 3G and standby time of 28 days.
The phone runs a highly customized version of Android (based on Android 4.1.2) that has been stripped of Google services and apps including the Play Store. Nokia X comes with Nokia's own app store, HERE Drive and Maps for location service, and Nokia MixRadio music service.
​Nokia has also bundled Microsoft's cloud storage service, One Drive with the phone and is offering 10GB of One Drive storage for free, along with one month of free unlimited Skype calls to landlines and mobiles.
When you compare Nokia X with Lumia 520 and Lumia 525, I  think Nokia X is over-priced. There is definitely a market hype around Nokia selling an Android device, it should sell devices initially. But to sustain in the market where local OEMs are dominating, Nokia has to reduce the price of the device well below Rs.7,500 INR.
