If Android is the gateway to a Windows Phone, Nokia has made sure to keep the Android experience on its new X devices one that makes Windows Phone shine.
Announced today, Nokia's new line of Android-based handsets — the Nokia X, X+ and XL — are destined for the sub-$200 smartphone market, and at that price consumers can't be too dissatisfied with the low-end specs they come with: don't expect a top end camera or loads of memory, but there's a Qualcomm's Snapdragon processor under the hood.
The larger of the three X devices, the single or dual-SIM XL, will be available for €109 and ships with miniscule storage capacity of 4GB in the form of an SD card, which leaves little room for apps, let alone media. However, it can be replaced with cards up to 32GB.
The model above was on display at Nokia's stand at the MWC event, where the X line was launched today, has just 768MB RAM.
According to one of the Nokia booth attendants who was promoting the and X+ and XL as part of Nokia's business device range, the version of Android that Nokia's platform was built on is 4.1 — the first version of Jelly Bean Google announced back in June 2012. Nokia's forked version of the OS, however, goes by the name of the "Nokia X software platform" and it's currently at version 1.0.
