Nokia X official: Android for the sub-Lumia masses

Nokia X official: Android for the sub-Lumia masses

The rumors are true: Nokia has an Android phone, and it's the Nokia X. Intended to sit in-between Lumia and Asha Touch, the Nokia X is the first of a family of Android-powered handsets to be rolled out over 2014, working as an affordable onramp to Windows Phone. Delivering the sort of eye-catching, colorful style as Nokia's Lumia, only priced from just €89 ($122) pre-subsidies, the Nokia X aims to package the Finn's design heritage, Microsoft's cloud and services, and Android's apps in an affordable device for the next billion looking to upgrade to a smart device. Read on for all the details.

Microsoft, Nokia & Android: The Oddest of Bedfellows

Microsoft, Nokia & Android: The Oddest of Bedfellows

There's no small amount of irony in Microsoft, locked in a fierce battle to claw smartphone market share from Google, buying Nokia and getting a brand new Android handset in the bargain. The Nokia X - in fact the first of a family of Android-based devices - is slipping out to market just ahead of Microsoft's acquisition closing, but you could be forgiven for assuming axing the X would be the first task on Satya Nadella's to-do list. The truth may be slightly more unusual, however, and SlashGear sat down with Jussi Nevanlinna, VP of product marketing for Nokia's Mobile Phones division, to find out why Nokia X might not just survive, but flourish under Microsoft's care.

Nokia Asha 230 and Nokia 220 push OneDrive to next billion

Nokia Asha 230 and Nokia 220 push OneDrive to next billion

Nokia keeps hacking away at the so-called next billion mobile users, and now the Finnish company wants to get them hooked up to the cloud with the new Asha 230 and Nokia 220. Fresh to MWC 2014, the Asha 230 brings features familiar from the existing Asha touchscreen line to an even lower point of entry, price-wise, while the Nokia 220 has a more traditional form-factor but is also the company's cheapest ever device to include cellular data.

Nokia Lumia Icon Review

Nokia Lumia Icon Review

Verizon has needed a new Windows Phone 8 flagship, and Nokia was the obvious choice to deliver it. Don't mistake the Lumia Icon for a side-thought in Nokia's smartphone schemes, however. On paper, at least, it takes the key things we loved from AT&T's Lumia 1520, and distills them down to a more hand-friendly scale. Does reality live up to those high expectations? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Nokia X A110 (Android phone) details appear in early retail

Nokia X A110 (Android phone) details appear in early retail

This morning a rather sizable leak has appeared overseas with a retail listing of Nokia's first Android phone. This device is called the Nokia X A110, according to the listing, and it's ready to roll with mid-tier specifications. The real big deal with this device - besides the fact that it'll likely work with Microsoft-made Android apps and Nokia's HERE Maps, is the fact that it comes in at around $110 USD off-contract.

Let’s be realistic about Nokia’s Android plans

Let’s be realistic about Nokia’s Android plans

It's easy to get excited about the idea of Nokia adopting Android. Ever since the company first announced plans to shift from Symbian to Windows Phone in early 2011, many have questioned the wisdom of throwing in with Microsoft and its distant-third-place platform rather than Google's OS. Without fail, with each new Lumia - whether it be the 41-megapixel 1020 or the phablet-scale 1520 - there's a small but vocal crowd who'll say "I'd buy it, if it ran Android." Now, with a Nokia-badged Android device believed to be imminent, it's easy to get excited about the company's near-legendary build quality and the flexibility of the widespread software, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Nokia Android phone tipped without Google

Nokia Android phone tipped without Google

It would seem that the elusive Nokia Android smartphone has been tipped as close to release this week, with a full collection of Microsoft and Nokia-created apps inside instead of Google's own. As Amazon has proven over the past several years, Google's Android is fully capable of being forked to a degree where Google itself need no longer be involved on the surface. Here Nokia is said to be taking a stab without Google's apps appearing anywhere on the device.

Nokia Lumia 1320 Review

Nokia Lumia 1320 Review

Nokia's Lumia 1520 grabbed the bulk of the headlines at the company's Abu Dhabi event last October, but it wasn't the only phablet the company brought along. In addition to the 6-inch flagship there was another, more affordable phone, the Nokia Lumia 1320, trading some of the high-end specs in favor of mass-market appeal. Question is, with a lower resolution display and the sacrifice of PureView, has Nokia trimmed too much to make the Lumia 1320 a hit? Read on for the full review.

Honda bakes Siri Eyes Free and HERE Maps into 2014 Civic

Honda bakes Siri Eyes Free and HERE Maps into 2014 Civic

Honda has baked both Apple and Nokia technology into its latest infotainment system, bringing Siri Eyes Free and HERE Maps with remote route planning support to the 2014 Civic. The new car - and the 2015 Honda Fit which will follow it - gets an updated version of HondaLink, with a 7-inch multitouch-capable display in the dashboard for navigating through audio, phone, directions, Pandora, and web-based points of interests using the Aha app. However, the 2014 Civic will also be the first car to get Siri Eye Free technology, Apple's integration of its personal digital assistant into the dashboard.

Nokia Lumia 2520 review

Nokia Lumia 2520 review

The Nokia Lumia 2520 has been some time coming. The glaring absence of a tablet in the company's range, and its refusal to discuss it until it could figure out a suitably "Nokia spin" on the segment, left us with big expectations. Turns out, the Nokia magic is making LTE standard-fit and borrowing the Lumia phone style for a Windows RT slate, but is that enough to differentiate the Lumia 2520 from the iPad and Microsoft's Surface 2? Read on for the SlashGear review.
