The Nokia X is official, an €89 ($122) Android smartphone reskinned with a Windows Phone-style UI and priced to sell in the sort of developing markets Nokia and Microsoft see as being the next-but-one generation of Lumia buyers.
As we get ready for MWC, one of the more highly anticipated announcements comes from Nokia. Not so subtle hints suggest we’ll get an Android smartphone from Nokia this year, but new reports suggest it may not end there. There may be up to three Nokia Android handsets on offer before the close of 2014, with the first coming as soon as May.
We're just counting the days before Nokia finally reveals if it really has an Android smartphone in its pocket. But while waiting, we can still take a few peeks at some photos of what is supposedly the Nokia X itself.
A dog, a UFO, and a colorful tree. A space craft, an ‘X’, and a green beam of light. Nokia, Android, Mobile World Congress. All these things go together, as Nokia continues to have a lot of fun teasing us ahead of their MWC 2014 announcement, part of which is likely an Android handset. This time around, we get a fun little picture of a dog under a tree — but what’s it all about?
Rumors related to the Nokia X "Normandy" have been increasing in frequency lately. Speculation had been suggesting the handset would get an official unveil during Mobile World Congress, and while Nokia hasn't offered much in the way of specifics here -- a recent press conference teaser appears to be highlighting an X.
We've been seeing details of the Nokia "Normandy" lately, and there is even the expectation about how the handset will see an official unveil later this month during Mobile World Congress. Nokia has scheduled an event, but more to the point for today -- it seems the Normandy has gotten some early retail attention in Vietnam.
If the thought of a Nokia Android phone was exciting for you, this may put you over the top. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Nokia will release an Android smartphone this month. Perhaps we’ll see it at MWC as we've heard, considering Nokia has an event scheduled.
In the spirit of patent licensing season, HTC and Nokia signed a patent agreement, but this act has more implications for HTC than your normal licensing pact. This has practically put an end to HTC's ongoing patent infringement lawsuits, not to mention losing streak, filed against it by Nokia.
Nokia seems to be raking in legal points in Germany as it scored yet another patent win against HTC. This time, the patent in dispute is quite an essential one that lets devices be compatible even with older network technologies.
