While Nokia may not be the market leader when it comes to smartphones, the company is responsible for many more affordable handsets. The company is now increasing their Dual SIM lineup as India welcomes the Nokia X1-01 and C2-00.

Sameer Mitha of NDTV Gadgets is reporting that the Nokia C2-00 has 19 days of standby time and just short of six hours of talk time. The figures for the Nokia X1-01 are more impressive with 19 days of standby time and 13 hours of talk time, or 36 hours of music can be enjoyed.

Claiming to be one of the loudest speakerphones available, the X1-01 handset also allows users to expand the memory by 16GB via the SD card slot. You also get an MPS player and FM radio thrown in as well. The most stand out feature is that the handset can remember the settings for five different SIM cards, and each SIM can have its own logo and ringtone.

Meanwhile the Nokia C2-00 allows for the easy swapping of SIM cards, with one stored inside the phone and the second via a slot on the side. Users don’t have to switch the device off to change SIM cards. The XI has the Series 30 operating system; with the C2 has Series 40.

The handsets are set to launch in a few different markets with the X1 costing about Rs. 2,180, and the C2 around Rs. 2,900 in India.
