Nokia X

Nokia has officially unveiled two new Android-based smartphones at its Mobile World Congress event today. The Nokia X and Nokia X+ are the Finnish companies first Android-based smartphones and pack interesting changes to the operating system which make the experience similar to that of Windows Phone.

The Nokia X packs a 4-inch display, and comes with all the usual Android functions you've come to expect, including the wide range of Android apps. The Nokia X+ packs the same 4 inch display, along with the addition of an SD card slot and more available storage.

Both devices come with Nokia branded apps such as MixRadio, OneDrive, and Skype. Nokia stresses that the Nokia X and Nokia X+ connect directly to Microsoft and NOT Google, which allows Microsoft to talk to customers they have never talked to before.
