Excellent thinking by Nokia. Those who need better specs (e.g. GPRS/bluetooth) for a primary phone wont buy this anyway, but those who just need the phone for calls+music, this is great! Believe it or not, torch is the most valuable safety add on for third world countries. For a better all round phone I will recommend the C5. X1 be great for all day music, since they decided to supply it with the most powerful battery the company had. I will get one as soon as it it available here.
This is just an m.p.3 player that can make calls,no browser,no camera,no bluetooth,no usb(even m.p.3 players have usb)no java platform so downloadable games wont work,my advice is if ur looking for a cheap phone get the c1-01.
Really you are doing a great job by updating the upcoming Nokia Mobiles, keep it up.
Dear All, It will be one of the cheapest mobile phone will launched by Nokia expecting in the month May or in June'2011. One can also see the www.thenokiagallery.com to get the details and more information about the New Nokia Mobile Phones.
Thanks and Best Regards

Why nokia made an xpressmusic phone without a bluetooth? How can you transfer music file outdoor? Bluetooth is basic to every music phones! Damn
Probably the best every-day-use nokia device ,with great battery life and on-the-go music player , I have an N8 which is not allowed at my work place ,so I'll buy an X1 once it's available
Dan, 31 Mar 2011Why no Bluetooth? There's a microSD card slot.If you like to add music to that phone, remove the microSD card, insert it on your memory card reader, add some music from your computer, insert it on this phone and... ENJOY! ;)
Dan, 31 Mar 2011Why no Bluetooth? There's a microSD card slot.I agree with you. Also, why no usb port. The absence of bluetooth and a usb port make the micro sd card slot useless.
