Nokia X makes its debut in Kenya for 12,499 shillings

After arriving in India, the Nokia X has set foot in Kenya with a view to attract customers with its Android-based OS and those interested in getting a hold of this device will have to wait until March 20, because that has been decided as the release date. The affordable phone that costs Rs 8,599 in India, has been priced at 12,499 shillings in the country in question.
