Nokia has finally succumbed to the Android craze by launching Nokia X series phones. The Nokia X, X+ and XL - all run on new Nokia X software platform, based on a variation of Google's Android. Nokia has taken the open-source elements of Android and has mixed them with elements of Asha and Windows phones to offer a different experience. Though the Nokia X users can't access the Google Play Store for apps, the phone will run Android apps curated by Nokia.
All three phones have a dual SIM and are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor. Its home screen sports larger, resizable tiles resembling those on the Windows phone. The Nokia X is the entry-level model, to be available immediately in selected countries. The Nokia X+ offers more memory and storage and will be available by May. The Nokia XL with a 5-inch screen, 5 megapixel rear-facing and 2 megapixel front-facing camera, is also to be made available in May.
