The Finnish company's first ever Android based smartphone Nokia X is reportedly set to hit Indian stores in March third week.

Online retailer, The Mobile Store listed the Nokia device to be available from 15 March for ₹8,500, but took down the message soon after report went wild on the internet. However, another online shop Saholic has gone a step ahead by taking orders for Nokia X from buyers for ₹8,499 with a promise of delivering the item on 25 March.

Nokia X, despite being an entry level smartphone created huge buzz during the unveiling at the recently concluded MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2014, mainly due to the timing of the Nokia's strange tactic to launch an android device when the company is on the verge of acquistion by Microsoft (by March End), who is directly competing with Google for the smartphone market share.

Nokia X sports a 4.0-inch WVGA (800x480p) IPS LCD screen with pixel density of 233 ppi (pixels per inch) and runs on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) OS version titled as Nokia X Software v1.0.

Under the hood, it houses a 1GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core CPU, 512MB RAM, 3.0-megapixel main camera (no flash) on the rear side and a 1500 mAh battery, which can power the phone for up to 17 days under standby mode.

Nokia X+ and XL, which made their debut last month are slated to hit stores in the second quarter of 2014, said a company press release.

Nokia, soon to be acquired by Microsoft Corp, is turning to software created by arch-rival Google for a new line of phones it hopes will make it a late contender in the dynamic low-cost smartphone market. Its first model, the Nokia X, will rely upon an open version of the Android mobile software system created by Google that has become the world's most popular software used in smartphones.
