Nokia X

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.

Again, these aren’t high end smartphones. They’re meant for emerging markets and to introduce smartphone owners to Microsoft’s and Nokia’s services. The idea is that the next smartphone they’ll be after a Nokia X/X+/XL will be a Lumia handset.

You can get the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL will be available in black, blue, green, red, white and yellow. 

We’ll have hands-on with the devices shortly.
