Developing nations are home to a massive chunk of the world's population and it is with that fact in mind that the Nokia X1-00 takes its cues.

Designed with a selling price of 35 euros in mind, the Nokia-X100 is a low-cost cell phone targeted at the "next billion" customers that the company expects to develop in high-density, emerging countries like those in south Asia and Africa. In order to capitalize on this potentially lucrative market, the Nokia X1-00 comes equipped with a FM radio, a headphone jack, a loudspeaker, a built-in flashlight as well as support for up to five different phone books to be stored on the phone simultaneously.

According to Nokia, the Nokia X1-00's low retail price will make it "accessible to people for whom that's nearly a month's salary."
