Nokia’s recently launched Nokia XL has received good publicity and is apparently doing well in the market. However, Nokia has reportedly tied up with Airtel to enable offers for downloading Android apps for free.
On Friday, Nokia had reportedly partnered with its long-time companion Airtel, in order to enable offers which will let the Nokia XL users download Android apps for free. This is indeed a nice strategy to, provide the existing customers with a good experience to use the apps, which they would have otherwise not downloaded against payment; and to lure other potential customers into buying Nokia XL because it avails exciting offers.
According to the offer, it is a 6 month plan which allows 500MB free data usage, using which the customers have the liberty to download the apps they want from the 1Mobile Store and the Nokia Store.
Sporting a 5 inch IPD LED display, and enabling 2G and 3G network, the Nokia XL supports Dual SIM and weighs about 190 grams only. Nokia XL is packed with 768 MB of RAM and an internal memory of 4 GB which is expandable up to 32 GB.
Nokia XL is equipped with a 5 MP primary camera with LED flash. It also sports a secondary front facing camera of 2 MP. The latest Nokia phone, runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play clocked at 1 GHz.
The Connectivity options for the Nokia XL include, GPRS, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, EDGE and GPS. The device is charged with 2000 mAh battery which serves up to 16 hours of Talk Time and 720 hours of Stand-by.
Although Nokia XL doesn’t provide exceptional features, the company is making its efforts to make connections and tie up with other companies to lure audience and satisfy the existing ones. Nokia has, in the past, partnered with Airtel. With this partnership, both Airtel and Nokia will benefit immensely.
We often come across apps which we would like to download, but our limited data restrict us to do so. Nokia has solved that basic problem for the Nokia XL customers, who can now enable the offer and enjoy downloading their favorite apps from the Android market, without worrying.
This step taken by Nokia is a brilliant move, and an intelligent idea. Looks like Nokia is keen on climbing its way up to the top once again. The tie up between Nokia and Airtel have worked in the past and they will work this time too. We can only wait until the duo makes the most of this initiative.
