­­­­The Nokia x is one of the latest Smartphone from the finish manufacturer that has got people talking). The Nokia X is the first Smartphone from Nokia to run on Android and targets the emerging markets like Kenya.

Nokia officially unveiled this device in Kenya last week and said it would be available in retail shops as from this week.

One of the key partners that Nokia said will carry this device is Airtel. The company announced that it will stock the Nokia X as from Mid April in the 17 African countries where it operates. Airtel has not revealed the retail price of the Nokia X but my guess is that it will be anywhere between Kshs 11,500 and 13,000.

The Company’s Chief Marketing Officer, Andre Beyers said: “This is yet another first from Airtel and Nokia. As Africa’s largest Internet provider, we are excited that Airtel customers in 17 countries will be amongst the first in the world to enjoy a unique combination of Nokia’s stunning design and user experience integrated with a wide range of services. In addition, Nokia X will come with data bundles for our customers to access their favourite social sites and chat applications.”

Nokia on their part had this to say, “We are delighted to partner with Airtel to offer the Nokia X smartphone”. “Consumers can enjoy their favourite apps, the best of signature Nokia experiences and the most popular Microsoft Internet and cloud services, wrapped-up on a smartphone that holds-on the Nokia promise.”

One other company that is stocking up the Nokia X is the ecommerce site, BidorBuy. The company has the device up for sale at Kshs. 12,000 with only 10 units available. If you want to take up this deal, you can head over to BidOrBuy and get one for yourself.
