Nokia are having a busy day at Mobile World World Congress 2014 with the launch of many devices. We have all seen the rumours of Android powered Nokia devices and now they are official.

To start off Stephen Elop introduced the Nokia X and X+, two new low end devices that do indeed run Android. Both new phones look very much like any other Nokia device and have 4-inch displays and the only difference being the Nokia X+ has better specs and an SD Card slot. After the announcement of the X and X+ Elop announced the XL which as the name suggests is larger and packs a 5-inch IPS display. All the specs are below as all handsets are very similar.

The devices may indeed run on Android but as rumours pointed out Google services are nowhere to be found. Elop tells us that the “Nokia X takes people to Microsoft’s cloud, not Google’s.” This may not be all bad as the fact that the devices are built on AOSP (Android) will make it easy for developers to port apps over. The table below tells you everything you need to regarding the 3 new handsets.

The Nokia X is out now for €89, the Nokia X+ will be €99 in early Q2, the Nokia XL will be €109 also in early Q2 and all will go on sale in “growth markets”.

BeginnersTech was an idea I had one Sunday when I was bored. It is now not only a website but a successful YouTube channel that takes me all over the world. Don’t ever let anyone discourage you. Chase those dreams.
