Nokia goes green: Nokia X Android phones officially announced


After months and months of rumors and speculation the Nokia X is finally real. A couple other devices are real too. Instead of just one Android phone Nokia announced three devices for their “Nokia X family.” All three devices are low-end as expected. Lets take a look.

The X has a 4-inch 480×800 display, Qualcomm dual-core processor, 5MP camera, 512MB of RAM, 4 GB of storage, microSD card slot, 1500mAh battery, and it’s available in six colors. The Nokia X has a special Nokia Store for Android apps that are approved by the Finnish handset maker, plus 3rd party stores.

The Nokia X+ is essentially the same device, except it has 768MB of RAM and it comes with a 4GB SD card. Lastly, the Nokia XL is a step above the X+. It has a 5-inch display and a 2MP front camera. Everything else is the same as the X+. All of these phones come in red, yellow, green, cyan, black, and white.

The software is a weird forked version of Android that looks like a hybrid between Windows Phone and Asha. It’s still unclear why Nokia went ahead with a low end Android phones when the Lumia 520 has been selling so well. The price of the devices are between the existing Asha and Lumia lines, at €89, €99 and €109 respectively.

The Nokia X will be available immediately, and the X+ and XL will be available in Q2. What are your thoughts on this device now that it’s official?
