    Don't say we didn't warn you, as we knew the Nokia X wouldn't last long under Microsoft's wing. We spent the last couple of years dreaming of a Nokia Android phone, but the thought of a low-end Nokia device running a forked version of Android was not the idea. Microsoft has sadly decided to kill the project after less than six months, but at least we've found some good news for those of you who believed. Today we learn that the software updates that were exclusive to the Nokia X2 will reach the legacy Nokia X, Nokia X+, and Nokia XL. The updates are quite significant from a usability ...

    For years, Android enthusiasts begged Nokia to appease the masses with what they thought would be the perfect combination of the best software and hardware – its hardware running Google's mobile operating system, Android. Not everyone – including our own Michael Fisher – bought into the theoretical Nokia-made dream phone. But there is no denying it was an extremely popular concept. Back in 2010, even I was guilty of suggesting a Nokia-made Android smartphone would solve all my personal gripes with smartphones. And I continued to preach the same story until Microsoft announced it ...

    We've seen Nokia announce the successor to the X, X+, and XL line-up of phones yesterday. The X2 runs Nokia X OS 2.0, which brings some improvements to the table over the initial version of the software platform. Among these new features you'll find the ability to display four tiles side by side, the apps list, as well as a brand new user interface for the camera. If you are among those who purchased one of the initial devices, you'll be sad to find out that Nokia X OS 2.0 will not be available as an update for you. The Nokia X, X+, and XL will, however, get more updates to fine tune the ...

    Nokia X2 is a device name we've become vaguely familiar with of late. Rumors of the next-generation Nokia X began popping up just a few weeks ago, when the name and a different swath of specifications popped up in a benchmarking application. Unlike the Nokia X, X+, or XL, all announced at Mobile World Congress, the Nokia X2 was rumored to come with slight improvements across the board – a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 SoC, 1GB RAM, and 4GB storage. The rumors were met with a lot of skepticism, though. Some thought it was too soon for yet another Nokia X phone. Others felt Microsoft ...

    After a bunch of different teasers, it's now official. With a late-night press release, Microsoft's Devices and Services Group (better known as Nokia) has taken the wraps off of the X2 smartphone, the follow-up to the Nokia X from earlier this year. Featuring a "stylish exterior," the phone is meant to appeal to people who like a little color on their phones. A "cool" translucent outer layer makes the phone glossy though, which Nokia thinks is a good thing -- we'll have to put it to the test to determine our verdict on that one. Two buttons are found on the front side of the phone, home ...

    Even though Nokia's Devices and Services team is now at Microsoft, the company may not be abandoning their Android efforts. Nokia's X low-end Android device may soon be due for a refresh, as benchmarks are now revealing a possible followup. The unit's alleged specs remind us very much of Motorola's Moto E, a device that didn't perform exceptionally well, but still is worth the price tag according to our own Michael Fisher. The specs on the handset supposedly consist of a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of on-board storage. These specs do place this followup ahead ...
