MWC Update: Nokia Unveils X, Brings Together Android and The Windows Phone Experience
Finally, Nokia has woken up from slumbering, as the company launches Nokia X built upon the Android Open Source Project, though it still has the windows phone interface like the Lumia series.
It’s official, the Nokia X Android phone is here. Microsoft might be buying Nokia’s phone business shortly, but the Finish smartphone maker is still pushing ahead with the a launch of three Android-powered handsets today. Nokia isn’t going for the high-end with the X at all, and the company has clearly trimmed its hardware specifications as much as possible to ensure it’s low-cost, but still usable. The 4-inch wVGA, dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon handset, which comes in Nokia’s now familiar spectrum of eye-arresting colours (including bright green, red and yellow) and also packs a 3MP camera, costs €89/$122 (excluding taxes & subsidies) — and is launching immediately, shipping as early as next week.
