Below are a couple of official Nokia ads for the Nokia X2-01 (budget QWERTY) and the Nokia C2-01 (most inexpensive new 3G from Nokia) sporting a very classic Nokia candy bar style. And according to Nokia Conversations, BOTH have launched today with the X2-01 expected around 80 EUR and C2-01 around 70 EUR but prices will vary depending on local taxes and operator subsidies. X2-01 is available this quarter and C2-01 is expected around Q1 2011.

C2-01 is really quite impressive for the price. For a lightly smaller screen (0.4″ difference), no QWERTY or music shortcuts, 3G, 3.2MP camera vs VGA, 16GB max memory as oppposed to 8GB. You seem to get much more out of your money with the C2-01 (being 10 EUR cheaper) than X2-01. It’s like an S40 version of the S60 C5-00. But the X2 should also fly based on the success of past budget QWERTY, C3-00.
