    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 ...

    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 ...

    Nokia has killed Symbian, as a direct effect of the Microsoft strategic alliance, when the Finns decided to go Windows Phone. Last summer, Nokia was reported to stop shipping Symbian phones altogether, and the 808 PureView was the last of its (Symbian) breed. Now that Nokia is a part of Microsoft --its devices division anyways-- we're looking forward to what is believed to be the Nokia X2. There are less than 20 hours (at the time of this post) until the event where the Android-powered Nokia X will get a follow-up. While the general consensus was (and still is), that it will be a phone ...

    Following yesterday's release of the Nokia Z Launcher, we're once again in that same place we found ourselves several months back when all the Nokia X hardware was being confirmed, a little tickled to be seeing Nokia crossing the tracks over to the Android side of town. As fate may have it, this feeling might extend a little longer, as Nokia puts up a teaser that could just be hinting at a new Android hardware release... or is it? Here's what we have: Nokia (the Devices & Services, now-part-of-Microsoft bit) has posted a teaser announcing “summer brings out our inner glow” and ...

    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 ...
