Microsoft Kills The Nokia X Android Phones!

without comments

Nokia-X2_featTwo pieces of shocking news come to us from Microsoft today, the first one is kind of huge that matters – the company would be cutting 18,000 jobs the next year.

The second one is well, Microsoft is also planning to scrape the existing Nokia Android phones – the X series and instead make new low cost Windows Phone devices. Stephen Elop explains this in an email he sent to his employees saying “We expect to make this shift immediately while continuing to sell and support existing Nokia X products.”

Maybe the Nokia X badge won’t be ditched after all but none of those X handsets will be associated with Android anymore. It will all be Windows Phone from here. What do you think about this news, is this a distress call? Would you rather have an Android Lumia?

The Nokia X2 Is Official For €99!

without comments

Nokia-X2-msft-androidAs reported last week, the Nokia X was recently released earlier this year and we had some weird teasing of an upcoming X phone by Nokia already. Turns out it is legit and the Nokia X2 has been announced and can be bought!

While it was normal and expected that even experts were treating this news with skepticism that the Nokia X2 was too early to be announced. While most of us will argue that this is just to make up for the below par phone that the Nokia X was, but then most of are spoilt using phones like Moto G which deliver so much more.

Microsoft and Nokia made the X2 official this morning, here is what you get : a Snapdragon 200, 1GB RAM, 4GB inbuilt storage, 5-megapixel rear camera with flash, 4.3-inch WVGA ClearBlack LCD, a 1,800mAh battery, and dual-SIM compatibility.The phone comes preloaded with Skype, Outlook, OneDrive with 15GB storage, OneNote, Bing Search, Yammer, and Xbox Games as expected. 

But we are still confused why another attempt with similar and just a better custom launcher that enhances multitasking. For €99 do you think this is worth it?

Nokia Teasing The X2 Already For Next Week!

without comments

original
So yesterday, something quite unexpected happened, Nokia – the division of the company that Microsoft hasn’t bought, released a launcher for Android called the Z launcher. This made all tech. journalists in the industry think hard – why would they get into software? Today however, we may have a dot to join!

So Nokia posted the above image and related to a “green summer glow” with a countdown that pointed to Tuesday, next week. With more than one source indicating a possible hardware launch, what could we have here? We are very possible looking at the Nokia X2 – successor of the Nokia X which was announced earlier this year. It is odd for a company to come up with a second generation so soon. Other sources say that this maybe the Lumia 635 for the U.S that we have been waiting for.

With the color green, it is aobviously not easy to check out Android from the news, but yeah the date is very near, how many hands do we see for the Nokia X2?

Nokia X2 Already On It’s Way?!

without comments

nokia-xEven though Nokia pushed it’s Android phone before Microsoft took over, the company is not ruling out plans for a possible Android – Nokia X successor, today we have news of the company already in the testing phases of the Nokia X2.

An Antutu Benchmark score shows us that the hot mid-ranger will still be carrying mid-range specs on the inside.The specs on the handset supposedly consist of a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of on-board storage.

baidu-nokia-x2-benchmarkWhile Nokia may or may not name the phone as X2, it is pretty much confirmed that a low-mid range device that runs forked Android is already in works. Would you buy one after the Nokia X?

Forget 3GB RAM, 4 GB On It’s Way Already?!

without comments

grand-s-ii-4gbRight now Android smartphones have almost become all about specs, and as we speak, even the top of the line smartphones maxes out at 3 GB of RAM.

4 GB RAM has been in talks ever since 3GB has been incorporated. Also, for the record the industry has taken a lot long to adopt 3GB compared to how soon the bump from 1GB to 2GB was. The rumors were pointing towards the Galaxy s5 having a 4GB RAM module but that clearly didn’t happen.

While the Grand S II as we saw it at CES 2014 packed just 2GB of RAM, the phone has recently resurfaced in China’s TENAA database with a listing that claims it now has 4GB. While 3GB is still rare, we really don’t see 4GB coming along so soon and easily.

Nokia X Bags 4 Million Pre-orders In China!

without comments

Nokia-xWhen the Nokia X was announced last month after numerous leaks, most of our readers were really excited, although the devices were far from impressive or up-t-date in terms of hardware.

What is to take away from the launch of the Nokia X is that it has only aim, to serve and sell like hot cakes in emerging markets and judging from the pre-orders, Nokia is pleased at the moment. The Nokia X is expected to officially arrive to China on March 25th, with other markets to follow.

Will you be buying the Nokia X? Make sure you give it some protection with our cases!

Nokia X, X+ And XL – 3 Forked Android Devices Unveiled!

without comments

Nokia-XL-Dual-SIM-2-645x322 (1)I’m sure everyone like me is saying “enough of leaks already!”, so here are the 3 models that we reported earlier that Nokia was working on – The Nokia X, X+ and XL – a new line of X devices.

There are three devices in the Nokia X family: the Nokia X, the Nokia X+ and the Nokia XL. The X and X+ both have four inch, 800 x 480 screens and 3MP camera. The XL has a 5 inch display, a 5MP rear facing camera and a 2MP a front facing camera. One of the differences between the X and X+ is that the X+ has more memory (768 MB of RAM compared to 512MB). All three phones are dual SIM and use 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processors.

These devices wont see US markets any soon since Nokia is aiming these devices at developing countries and does not want to focus in mature markets.
