Microsoft has unveiled another low-end Android device as the firm continues to try and grab smartphone market share.
The Nokia X2 will begin rolling out globally from next month. It is priced at 99.
Running a heavily customised version of Android, which is made to look like the Windows Phone interface, the X2 is targeting users who are looking to make a transition to a smartphone.

The X2 has Outlook.com, Skype and OneDrive apps pre-loaded. OneNote and Yammer are the latest Microsoft apps to be added to the Nokia Store.
Photos and documents can also be backed up to OneDrive, which has 15GB of free cloud storage.
Microsoft has openly claimed that it wants to use Nokia X devices to act as gateway to its ecosystem and, ultimately, get users onto the Windows Phone platform. However, this strategy has been met with bemusement by some analysts.
The original Nokia X was launched in February and has proved popular in India, Pakistan, Russia, Kenya and Nigeria, where dual-SIM functionality is desirable. It is available through various online retailers in the UK priced at 99.
