Precisely March 28th 2014, communications and information technology giant, Nokia Corporation unveiled Nokia X ?in Nigeria at 10 Degrees Events Centre, Ikeja. This smartphone spectacularly runs Android apps, Microsoft services and signature Nokia experiences.?
Before now, Nokia refused to go near Android or other operating platforms with a long spoon, preferring to stick to its Symbian operating system and later, the Windows operating system, when it pulled a massive partnership with Microsoft some two years back.?Other devices on the latest Nokia X series are X+ and XL. Nokia X, the first of 3 android powered smartphones is now officially available in Nigeria. It officials confirmed the device is priced at N21,000.
?Our deliberate approach is to offer four tiers of products including our affordable entry-level devices like the new Nokia 220; our entry-level Asha touch phones like the new Nokia Asha 230; our new Nokia X, X+ and XL smartphones primarily for growth economies; and our Lumia portfolio, which is where we introduce the greatest innovation and provide full compatibility with the Microsoft experience,? Nick Imudia, Nokia Corporation MD stated.
The Nokia X family exceptionally features Nokia?s renowned handset quality and design, with a fresh, tile-based user interface inspired by the Lumia family. All devices come with Fastlane, a screen which lets people switch between apps more smoothly.
