Nokia unveiled 3 good for nothing Android device at MWC

Well i have to say am rather dissappointed like all the other guys after seeing the Android made by Nokia with Windows phone flavour. After so many months of rumor and speculation Nokia finally unveils it’s first Android device at MWC few days ago. In number they announced three Android running devices at the same time – Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL. And surprisingly all the phones sucks successfully!

Nokia X and Nokia X+ have 4 inch display on their front where Nokia XL has a 5 inch display. All the devices IPS displays have same resolution – 480 X 800, which is not much for everyone. Each devices run by dual core Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon S4 1GHz Cortex A5 CPU with 4GB internal memory and microSD card slot. Except Nokia X, other two phone RAM are 768MB where Nokia X gets only 512MB of RAM.


At the back of the Nokia X and X+, there's a 3MP fixed focus camera with both phones weighing 129 grams and pack 1500mAh battery. It's good for 10.5 hours of 3G talk time and has a maximum standby time of 17 days. Both phones are also capable of maximum music playback of up to 26 hours, while video playback is rated at 8.4 hours before the battery needs a recharge. Nokia XL has a 5MP camera with LED flash on the back with 2MP snapper at front for Skype video calling.

Now time to mention Nokia stupidity. None of the phone have Google Play store access. You have to use Nokia Store to download apps. App developer needed to submit their Android apps to that stores. Though many of the apps need to be changed slightly in order to remove all the Google goodies. There is no GMail, no Chrome, no Maps inside! You have to use Nokia HERE maps in order to get direction. Nokia HERE maps are great but its coverage is still in primitive state.

Now some good news time. Nokia gives 1-month free of Skype premium for every Nokia X-family customer. Users will also get 10GB of free storage to the OneDrive (previously known as SkyDrive) cloud service for storing their files online.


All the Nokia X Android phone will be available from Q2. The price range will be $100-$150. But US customers will not get any of the devices in their territory.
