Even though the pricing of Nokia X looks better when compared to Nokia Lumia 525 launch price which went on sale for Rs.11, 500. Currently, Lumia 525 is on sale for Rs.10,000 and Lumia 520 is on sale for Rs.7,500. When you compare Nokia X with them, I think Nokia X is over-priced. There is definitely a market hype around Nokia selling an Android device, it should sell devices initially. But to sustain in the market where local OEMs are dominating, Nokia has to reduce the price of the device well below Rs.7,500. What do you think?
