Nokia X, X+ and XL and MWC 2014

Nokia at the Mobile World Congress was expected to launch its first ever Android smartphone, Well they did launch the device, but to every-bodies shock, they launched not one but two other devices with it. So, the three devices Nokia launched are Nokia X , Nokia X+ and Nokia XL. Even though these are android based smart phones, they do not look like android smartphones at all! It looks more like a mixture of the Asha software platform and the tile layout of a Lumia Windows phone.  Nokia calls this new OS the Nokia X 1.o UI.

Nokia XL


The Nokia XL has some noticeable changes compared to the Nokia X. The full list of specs include:

The Nokia XL will come in six colors as well, though the colors are not as bright as its other two bothers have. Nokia though with the Nokia XL have introduced a new color in their family, Orange!

The smartphones as expected do not support Google Play and you have to use Nokia’s own app store to get all the apps you desire, with some exclusive apps by Nokia and Microsoft. The Nokia X family devices will come in built with apps like Here maps, Mix radio and Microsoft apps such as Skype, One Drive and Not only these but also with third party apps such as Vine , BBM Messenger and our favorite game Plants vs Zombies 2. The devices will cost you €89, €99 and €109 which is a reasonable price for the devices.
