Nokia X+, Nokia XL, available for pre-order in Spain
The attention is worth it too because few companies have been through what Nokia has endured in such a short period of time. From the “burning platform” memo to the acquisition by Microsoft, Nokia looks like it is going to come through this journey better equipped to take on some seriously heavy hitters in the mobile space.
Now, the Nokia X+ and Nokia XL are available for preorder on Amazon.es, with a pre-sale price guarantee of €119 (including VAT) for the X+ and €129 for the Nokia XL. There is no guaranteed delivery date, but it cannot be that far off if Amazon is taking pre-orders (fulfilled by Amazon directly). Color options are limited. The Nokia X+ can be ordered in green or black, while the XL is green only.
The new line of Nokias are meant for what were called “growth” markets. On the order page, it simply says this device can be shipped to Spain and other “selected countries.” What those countries are we are not sure, though we suspect if you are in the US, you might not be on the list of “selected countries.”
As entry level devices, the specs will not wow you, but for the intended audience, the price point (SIM free) along with the reliable dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage and expected Nokia build quality, the new Nokia “X” line appears to be a winner.

All of the services that MS supplied for the phone, not to mention that it was co develop with MS, not to mention that the NX lineup will soon be MS's, not to mention that the whole deal, and plan to do this phone was between Nokia, and MS, not to mention that Nokia has been greatly funded by MS to continue to work on projects like this phone, not to mention that Nokia said MS's at least 20 times during the press event for this phone... ????? Do I need to keep going on??................
Are you going to argue with that? I'm sure you will though.. Just admit it. For the past few years it's been about Nokia AND Microsoft... I know you might not like that, but I'm talking about the reality of Nokia/MS working together, not your emotional attachment to Nokia...

Damn that was fast boy Nokia does not play around do they. You dummies out there wrongly put down Mr Elop but all along he had nokia People working on an Nokia android smart phone. Mr. Elop knew Microsoft would never approve of a Google service based Android smart phone so he had one built that used Microsoft Services but could have Google play store apps side loaded on them.The truth is if Nokia sells the "XL" Nokia X phone in the USA it would sell out like Hot cakes even though it's specs stink to some Americans WHY. The reason it would sell out is that it's the cheapest 5 inch Android smart phone around folks at a 140 American bucks you cannot loose on the deal. Nokia/Microsoft will be smiling all the way to the bank. The next shoe to fall is look for the American Version of the Nokia XL to Magically appear just before the Christmas holidays. if it has an HD screen and a lumia 920 pure vue Camera Nokia/Microsoft wont be able keep up the demands for them. I will stick with my Windows 8 smart phone especially because of the new features it will get from the update to Windows phone 8.1

For $39 more, you can get the Moto G, which stomps this phone in every measurable category except screen size, although the smaller screen is better quality. I wouldn't let any of my friends buy this when the G is on the market.

Yeah, but the Moto G is popular... That's lame.. Who follows the crowd, nerds?

So they should get a Blackberry then?

yeah but its motorola not nokia? Am i wrong?

Nokia just made a shtty phone. Motorola just made the best selling Moto G.
Reputation means nothing.
24. Reluctant_Human (Posts: 856; Member since: 28 Jun 2012)
I would say both the Moto G and Nokia X/XL are on par with each other. One is just pure android and the other an Android/Windows hybrid.
I like the Moto G for what it offers and price but I'm going to wait and really judge between the two until l I get my hands on the Nokia. Might buy one when I go back to Spain just to mess around.

The "dummies" out there putting down Elop are doing so because he shoved the Devices and Services department of Nokia into the back door of Microsoft on the cheap along with the Muppet board of directors.
Don't get your facts skewered here, he is absolutely no savior, ask anybody in Finland, because he's real popular there.

X, X+, XL - Can't Nokia come up with a phone line with an original name without ripping off HTC?
7. papss (unregistered)
You mean like all the things HTC stole from Nokia? I think the name similarities are fine compared to HTC patent issues
21. sprockkets (Posts: 1160; Member since: 16 Jan 2012)
You mean like using QC's chips and having to pay Nokia the privilege of using it?
Don't get me wrong, they still need to pay, but to claim they just "stole" it from Nokia is full retarded.

If my memory serves me right, there was an Xseries nokia way back in their glorious symbian days

Can't wait for for the Cyanogenmod on this phone, it will be interesting enough as a starting point :D
