Yes; thanks to the good people at Nokia Nigeria, I have in my hands a Nokia X. Yes; the same one that was announced today. This unit is green in colour just like in the press photo above. When I was informed earlier today that I would be given access to one for two days, I was quick to ask you to send in your questions, so I can answer them. Unfortunately, I will not be able to do that yet. I am told that this unit is not a Final Sales sample, and so I cannot review or even post pictures of it. However, I have been promised a proper review unit in two and half weeks, so you won’t have long to wait.
Do feel free to still ask your questions, and I will do my best to answer them in a few weeks when the proper production units arrive. Yes; units. Both the X and XL are coming this way.
In the meantime, I am rocking this prototype X for the next 48 hours. I have been off BBM for a while, but I have successfully signed in on the X, so for all you BBM-ers of life, I am chatting with you on a Nokia X.
But if you really, really, really want to see the X right away, please call my P.A. to fix an appointment. Note that the security personnel at the door will require you to switch off your smartphones, as we cannot risk you taking a photograph of it. Also, it will help if you come along with some small chops. Maybe a bottle of chocolate flavoured vodka or Jack Daniel’s too, We can sit, chat, play with the Nokia X, eat and drink.
