by on26 February 2014 1522 times

Nokia finally officially unveiled its smartphone with Android OS at the MWC. However, this is not what Android fans had hoped for, and it turned out that the device will serve the spread of the company's services to attract users to the Lumia devices.

Nokia X comes with a greatly modified Android, specifically with the open-source parts of Android, so that access to Google services is not possible, including Google Play. However, there is access to other repositories for Android, and Nokia will offer its own repository. If that is not enough, users will also be able to install the APK application packages to the device. According to the words that come from the Finnish manufacturer, Nokia X will serve to attract users to Windows Phone, which remains the company's platform of choice. With an interface that greatly resembles the Windows Phone, Microsoft services such as OneDrive and Skype, and Nokia's HERE Maps and Music Mix will be available for this device.

The line consists of three devices. Nokia X (with 512 MB of RAM) and Nokia X+ (with 768 MB of RAM) with 4 inch screen, while the Nokia XL has a 5 inch screen, downside is that all devices come with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, which is just not enough on 5 inch display. Prices respectively are 89, 99 and 109 euros. Nokia X will be sold exclusively in emerging markets.
