Nokia X available in India today, X+ and XL coming soon

Nokia just announced the availability of its first Android-powered product, the Nokia X, in India. India used to be a stronghold for Nokia but recently cheap Android-powered devices have been growing fast and eating into its share.

The dual-SIM Nokia X is available today at INR 8,600 ($140 / €100) from Nokia’s official store. For comparison, a Nokia Lumia 520 – by far the most popular Windows Phone handset – costs INR 7,700.

The Lumia 520 is highly popular for a reason – Androids in its price range are nowhere near its specs. The Nokia X is no monster either but you get the same free offline navigation from HERE Maps.

Nokia X+ is also up on Nokia’s India store but it’s listed as “coming soon” and there’s no price yet. The X+ and the 5″ XL model should launch within a couple of months in the country.
