Photos and details of new Nokia X, Asha and feature phones

Nokia X

We outline the specification, price and availability of the new Nokia X, Nokia X+, Nokia XL, Nokia Asha 230 and Nokia 220 smartphones. ALSO: new Nokia phones in pictures.

New Nokia phones: details

Nokia today at MWC announced five new handsets - and none of them were Windows Phone 8 devices. Nokia is making a play for the lower end of western markets, and the growth markets of the developing world. So the new Nokia phones announced today in Barcelona range in price from 29 to 109 Euros. And that is cheap! (For more: The 6 best budget smartphones.)

The X devices are, according to Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, intended for 'growth markets'. He definitely said that the Nokia X itself would be in all markets, but although there is growth at the bottom of the major western markets, I think this is Nokia's play for the developing world.
