“Wow. That Nokia XL is big.”

That’s the first thought that hit my lobes when this hands-on comparison started playing on my monitor, but it certainly wasn’t the last.

Tune in to the side-by-side video below to see the Windows Phone-powered 1020 placed alongside the Nokia XL’s tile-centric build of Android for a quick look at how the former has influenced the design of the latter, then stick around to keep slurping from the MWC 2014 firehose: it may be afternoon in Barcelona, but we’re just getting caught up with the news flood here on the Eastern seaboard in the U.S.
