The Nokia X hasn’t necessarily taken the world by storm, but then again, Nokia wasn’t really planning on it. The company was planning on making this a new strategy to reach emerging markets with a non-compromise experience, and it has reached that to a certain level. It’s hard to tell if Nokia is doing enough to sell the phone the way it should, but at least we notice that the company does want to fix some of the major issues many hate about it.
One of the biggest complaints about the current Nokia X is its home button. According to many users, the user [...]

Awwwkward. Ever have one of those times when you’ve had to make up for someone else’s mistakes? Maybe they blurted out something that you hadn’t intended to make known to the general public and now you have to change your whole disposition. Maybe your little sister accidentally blurted out your impending wedding plans to your future in-laws, the Capulets. Similarly, at MWC Nokia introduced us to the Nokia X Microsoft is now saddled with.
It’s embarrassing and now you have to explain things earlier than planned and where are you going to get a bottle of poison at this time of [...]
Even though the Nokia X keeps some of the design language from Windows Phone, its similarities are actually not that many. As a matter of fact, once you hop into the settings, you can clearly see that this is stock Android with different buttons and a different font, but Android in every other way. Nokia executives are famous for constantly repeating “beautiful live tiles” every time the company announces a new Lumia, but it seems the company doesn’t want the Windows Phone modern UI to reach the Nokia X.

We’re all on the edge of our seats waiting to see what Microsoft has planned for Nokia in the next coming days as MWC is a little over a week away. We’ve heard rumors of the company preparing a significant amount of devices for launch in Barcelona, but we’ve got to hand it to the company for keeping most of these a secret. The reason why we say ‘most’ is because the list is quite bigger than expected.
A website that hosts the import-export information for India is reporting a significant amount of devices arriving to the country for testing through [...]
