We covered the basic specs of the phone in our previous write-up about the Nokia X phones and platform. The bigger brothers of the phone the Nokia X+ and XL will be launched in India over the next 60 days.

Here are a few more points about the Nokia X which we didn’t cover in our previous writeup

  • For the launch, Nokia has an offer where you get 10GB of space on Microsoft’s One Drive.

  • Nokia is looking at the Nokia X platform not to be a true Android experience, but defines it as  Nokia  Experiences + Microsoft Services.

  • Nokia is looking at The Nokia X range of phones to be a bridge between their Asha Range of Phones and the Lumia range. Since the Nokia X comes with the Microsoft services bundled, Nokia is looking at the Nokia X phones to be the starting point for users who’d later graduate to the higher priced Lumia range of devices

  • As we said earlier, Google Play is not available on the Nokia X, but you can get your apps from the Nokia Store, or any of the other third party app stores like Amazon Apps, Yandex, Mobango or more. In fact, if you don’t find an app on the Nokia Store, they’ll give you suggestions on where you can get that app from

  • There are quite a few preloaded apps and games on the phone, some of which include – Vine, BBM Messenger, Skype, Facebook, Monopoly, Fruit Ninja, Viber, SimCity and more.
