Nokia X Android-based family of devices launched at MWC 2014

Nokia X Android-based family of devices launched at MWC 2014

Nokia has launched a new breed of device today which marries Microsoft’s services with an Android-derived operating system.

The device was revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Monday and is the first device from Nokia to use the Nokia X OS – a fork of Android. However, like the Asha series it also uses the Fastlane UI for quick navigation.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

Both the Nokia X and Nokia X + have similar spec lists, for example, both have 4-inch touchscreens but the ‘+’ model includes more storage and an SD card by default.

In a surprise move, Nokia also launched the Nokia XL which comes with a larger 5-inch display and a 5-megapixel camera on the rear, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
