Nokia has launched it’s first android mobile Nokia X at affordable prices , powered by dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 Processor

Nokia targets the android market with its first android mobile at affordable prices, Named as ” Nokia X ”

Really, we hope it would be a milestone for Nokia, the next coming years to dominate the smartphone world & market !! Since, its strong possess towards the Symbian & Windows, Samsung took its place in India & other Countries by providing better features for better prices when compared to the sales ratio of Nokia’s feature mobile series. Now there are too many big boys for the android market, such as Micromax, Samsung, XOLO, HTC & New Babies, like Celkon , MAXX and now the Nokia’s step over the android market, really a good news for the mobile industry.
I was once a very big fan of Nokia in the past, before the entry of android. Once again i feel that i could love Nokia for this big move that is being gentle & quick before the popularity of the quad core mobile processors & high end mobile devices with PC equivalent configurations.
This is the right time for us to enjoy the true android mobile, with Nokia, a trust worthy company that assures us the very long lasting battery life when compared to the other mobile phones now a days.
Nokia X a dual SIM slot mobile, is powered by Dual Core Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 Processor, which was used by Nokia Lumia, a quality one.
Following up the Nokia X, In the next few months, Nokia X+ & Nokia XL is being available for mobile market. Since its Nokia, the mobile comes pre-installed with games and apps like facebook, twitter, Plants Vs Zombies. At present, Nokia X users can get apps from Nokia store. It does not have Google Playstore out-of-box, though it supports 3rd party app stores like Yandex & Sideme.
Price tag of devices , computers , laptops , mobiles & tabs
Now here, the big part is the affordable price, as follows :
Nokia X : $125 (May Vary)
Nokia X+ : $140 (May Vary)
Nokia XL : $155 (May Vary)
Nokia X is brought out, for those who need to have Nokia Lumia With Android OS, Since they almost have the same appearance & both the model series share the same Qualcomm Snapdragon processor family.
As far, it could be said, android mobiles will be dirt cheap very soon, by the entry of this pleasant android handset from Nokia, it is much clear that we could enjoy the android more & more than ever before.
Device Specifications , mobile , pc , laptop , computer and tablets
The Key Specifications of Nokia X, as stated at Official Nokia Site, are as follows :

BN-01 3.7V 1500 mAh Battery, promising 13.3 hours of talktime on 2G network & 10.5 hours of talktime on 3G network. Hope this one do not be drained when we use apps & games, unlike the other android devices that go off soon on gaming.
Dual-core, 1 GHz, Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4, the same that was adopted by Lumia. It will deliver good performance on android, as it was serving well on windows platform with Nokia Lumia previously.
512 MB ram that is a bit less for myself to use the mobile for heavy gaming or processing an huge application. But the mobile is supported up by a 4 GB ROM (in-built storage) that could help us have lots of apps inside our device.
It also support upto 32 GB of external storage using MicroSD.
Software platform, is a variant of Android Source called as “Nokia X software platform” Version “1.0″. It uses Nokia Store and Active Sync as alternative to original Google PlayStore & Sync. Though its Nokia brand, Nokia-X supports now apps installation from Other sources such as SD cards & other app stores.

Internet browsing with built-in Nokia browser, HTML browser & Opera browser And WiFi connectivity with WiFi Hotspot Facility that can connect simultaneously up to 8 WiFi supported devices. 3G is available using WCDMA Technology.
Factory built apps like HERE Maps and HERE Drive allows users to use Free & Offline Maps using GPS tracking. It also supports location positioning using A-GPS & WiFi internet.
3 mega pixel (MP) camera with 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution is quite decent for the price, though it is a fixed focus with 4 x Zoom. It support minimum range shots at 50 cm and has no flash. Camera process images to JPEG oriented files. Allows other features like panorama & video shoots on 864 x 480 resolution at 30 fps athat saves as 3gp & MP4.
It plays mp3 & is capable of streaming music from Nokia MixRadio app, and also you can get FM radio handy. It does allow direct video streaming too, from the internet services that is able to stream. Other features like, automatic screen brightness adjustment, speed dial & vibration alerts are added.
Conclusion review of devices , computers , laptops , mobiles & tabs
This is truly a mark on the history of Nokia mobiles, since it is the first android device from a Symbian based company that was once a great seller within India & several other Asian Countries. But Nokia X brought joy to the people of my kind to enjoy android with an efficient company mobile.
The price is very decent but could have added few more features like : Fivepoint Touch, 1 GB Ram, Built-in PlayStore, Completely android OS based like Gingerbread, ICS, Jellybean…
But its for the sake mobile stability that Nokia has adopted their very own Android OS from the Google Android Source Code.
It could sure have, massive sales all over the world, and we hearty people welcome the Nokia Back to our hands ♥.
We hope good from Nokia’s X devices. Love you all.
