Nokia’s shrewd move with the Nokia X undermines Google, bolsters Microsoft

347

Barcelona – Early this morning, Nokia held their highly anticipated press conference here at Mobile World Congress 2014. Anticipated is the word used because while two new and admirable low-end entry phones were introduced – the Asha 230 and Nokia 220 – all eyes were focused on ‘X’.

Yes, Nokia has gone Android. But if you think that’s all there is to the story, you may be missing the point. We sat down with Jo Harlow, Executive Vice President, Smart Devices at Nokia, for some answers to our eager questions.

If you watched the live stream of Nokia’s presentation on the Nokia X, X+ and XL devices, you may have noticed that their message was crafted perfectly. Yes, the words ‘Android’ and ‘Google’ were used, but Stephen Elop was purposeful in focusing on Microsoft’s services and Nokia’s Lumia line. It was as if they knew that one wrong word could be misconstrued as “Nokia has doubts about Windows Phone” or that this new device series was an admission of failure.

Specs for the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL

Nokia has just announced a new family of devices in their portfolio. The first three devices in this category are the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL. These smartphones all run a forked version of Android and therefore run Android apps, although you won’t find Google’s services on here. Instead you’ll find Microsoft and Nokia powering your experience. Here are the specs for these three new phones.

Nokia X and X+ announced, runs Android apps

Nokia X and X+ have just been announced by the Finnish handset maker at their Mobile World Congress 2014 press conference. The devices are the first Nokia handsets to run Android, although it is a forked version of the operating system. Nokia X and X+ is aimed at emerging markets and is partly powered by Nokia and Microsoft services. Think of these as an extension of Asha and not so much a threat to Window Phone. Details below.

Live from Nokia at Mobile World Congress! [2:30 a.m. EST Monday, Feb. 24]

175

In less than eight hours, Nokia is expected to take the stage here at Mobile World Congress. On tap? A rumored Android phone, dubbed Nokia X, and one or two other Asha series devices in tow. 

Will there be any announcements for Windows Phone? We think there may be some apps here and there and perhaps an accessory. Regardless, it should be a fun day to see what happens. We'll also be sitting down with Nokia for some one-on-one Q&A, so stayed tuned later for that, post-announcement.

For now, bookmark this page and come back in a few hours to see it all unfold.

HP has announced at Mobile World Congress the HP Pavilion x360. It reminds us of Lenovo’s line of YOGA machines. The Pavilion x360 features a 360-degree hinge that lets you convert the notebook to stand or tent mode, or to tablet. Use the x360 as a notebook to work, rotate into a stand to watch videos, convert into a tent to play, or transform it into a tablet to go anywhere. The starting price is $399.99, which is close to the prices of entry-level notebooks.

Earlier this month we told you all about a new game exclusive to Windows Phone called Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse: Alpha (but we’ll just call it VALA: Alpha). The game was created and launched by Matt Cavanagh, aka @RogueCode, from South Africa. He’s been around the Windows Phone scene a long time making his own apps and games, while also doing work for others like MyEdit. VALA: Alpha has only been out for two weeks, but it’s picked up over 50,000 downloads. In a new blog post he shares what’s next for the game.

Evleaks: This is the Nokia Lumia 630

@evleaks is at it again. The notorious mobile leakster has just uploaded a photo on Twitter captioned with just 4 words: Nokia Lumia 630, 2014. The image shows the front of the device along with its home screen. Some of the live tiles include Instagram, Nokia MixRadio, Vine, and HERE Maps, but what’s probably more interesting is that it appears to have virtual on-screen buttons.
