The Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona was full of surprises this morning, when Nokia announced its first Android-powered smartphone, Nokia X, along with the family smartphones, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL. The Finnish smartphone manufacturer decided to ditch the Microsoft Windows phone software and tilt towards Android.
The Nokia X family smartphones share the Lumia design, but differ in hardware features and pricing. Hence, the Nokia XL packs a 5-inch screen for 109 Euros, the Nokia X+ offers a 4-inch screen for 99 Euros, and the Nokia X will be available for only 89 Euros in Asia, South America and Eastern Europe but not in North America, Korea, Japan or Western Europe.
The Nokia X smartphone features a 3 megapixel camera, 4-inch display, 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of storage. Even though Nokia X's specs are not really impressive, they are low cost and designed to fit the budget user.
The software outline of Nokia X may disorient the user, as all apps are displayed in a Windows-style tiled home screen. However, by swiping across you get to the "Fastlane," a stream of notifications and recent activity. Nokia X's interface seems to be a bit slow, switching between apps takes longer, and the home and back functions are performed by one button, which is a bit puzzling.
The Nokia X handsets won't have access to Google Play Store or apps like Chrome, Maps, and Gmail. However, Nokia is creating its own Nokia Store, providing its own apps.
Nokia says that in the future they will introduce many more X smartphones that will blend Android apps and Microsoft services.
