Nokia X Revealed: Android & Windows Mashup Budget Smartphone


The rumoured Nokia Android smartphone is finally revealed by Microsoft. The Nokia X ( a.k.a. Project Normandy) is not just a name, it is also the custom OS Microsoft and Nokia has forked out of the popular Android 4.1. Apart from the Android OS, Nokia X also features elements from Windows Phone and Asha (made popular from low-end Nokia phones).

The Nokia X is a mid-range phone powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 4-inch screen. Accompanying the launch are Nokia X+ and Nokia XL which features memory expansion options and a better rear camera. Reports are saying Microsoft and Nokia are launching this phone with focus in the emerging markets and priced at €89 (~est S$155). We feel the price is very competitive even if launched in developed markets it should still generate good sales figures. Asia is in the list of the markets announced and we are hoping Singapore is one of them.
