Nokia X phones are targeted at emerging markets with the base model called the Nokia X expected at around 89 EUR offering a 4-inch display and running Nokia X platform 1.0 (Android) on a 1GHz dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM. It also features a 3.2MP camera and comes with better battery life on paper than any similarly priced Android phone I have seen.
The mid-model, the Nokia X+ comes with more RAM offering 768MB of RAM and is priced at 99 EUR. The current top of the line model, the Nokia XL is priced at 109 EUR and offers a 5-inch display with a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and 2MP front camera. All current Nokia X phones offer fast 3G internet and Dual-SIM option.
The highlight of the new Nokia X phones is their highly customised Android OS which features Windows Phone style interface with Live tiles. With the design Nokia is shutting out Google’s services and pushing its services and Microsoft services instead.
Nokia X phones will be coming with Here Maps for navigation and Nokia MixRadio for free music streaming. They will also be coming with Microsoft’s OneDrive for cloud storage. The phone will also come with Skype and BlackBerry has announced that BBM will be coming for Nokia X phones soon.
