Android-powered Nokia X hits Malaysia for $120

The first Android device from Nokia, the Nokia X, landed with much fanfare at MWC last week. The company is wasting no time in getting it out to customers, as the device has been announced through Malaysian retailer for RM 399 (about $120).

While certainly on the cheap side, the device itself boasts rather meager specifications: a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 4-inch WVGA display, 3MP fixed focus camera, 4GB of storage and just 512MB of RAM.

Our time with the device revealed a somewhat confusing mashup of Android 4.1, Windows Phone, and even elements from Nokia’s Asha lineup. And although it’s not able to run Google’s Play Store, it does have the ability to sideload Android apps, 75% of which Nokia claims will be able to run without modification.
