Nokia Announces the Android Powered X2
The Nokia X2 is the company’s next generation Android phone! Recently, as you may have heard Nokia, one of the best handheld manufacturers to date was bought out by the windows loving Microsoft. Even before the buyout however Nokia took a rather surprising turn into the world of Windows Phone. While Nokia was on the verge of losing it all it seems as if the move to the operating system saved the company from going under. Before the buyout however the debate between Windows or Android seemingly flared up every day. Once Microsoft got their hands on Nokia the possibility for an Android device seemed farfetched. Fast forward to the present and we are now looking at not the first, or the second, but the fourth Nokia made Android phone…lets meet the X2 shall we!
Nokia and Android became one earlier this year back in February. The newly acquired company launched the Nokia X+, the Nokia XL and the Nokia X. While the frame work that gives the device is go is rooted in Android, you would likely never know as Nokia and Microsoft made the operating system their own. Today however the next generation Nokia X is being announced. Fittingly the device will be known as the X2 and will be offered up at €99 which translates into about $135 bucks.
