Nokia XL approved in China, could be launched there soon
While the Nokia XL was announced at the same time with the Nokia X and Nokia X+, it’s not available to purchase yet. However, Nokia said that the XL would be released starting this quarter, and it looks like China is among the countries that are going to get it soon - which isn’t a surprise, since China is also one of the first markets where the Nokia X became available.

The Nokia XL was approved by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center several days ago, so Nokia has the green light to start selling it there.

Since China is the world’s largest smartphone market, Nokia probably hopes to ship a lot of XL handsets there - especially since the Nokia X was sold out within 4 minutes after its Chinese launch (though this does not tell us how many units were sold).

Nokia XL resembles the Nokia X in many aspects. However, the XL is larger, as it sports a 5-inch WVGA display. Other differences include a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and 768MB of RAM. Check out our Nokia XL hands-on for more.

this is the only Nokia X series smart phone I think would sell well in the USA especially if it were given at least 1 gig of ram and a 720 HD screen. Microsoft will by the end of April be in charge of the future of the 3 Nokia X-smartphones. I think they are Microsoft's best way to get Android Fans and users to purchase and use Microsoft services but Microsoft has to put into the Nokia x phones forked OS the API's and data that WILL ENABLE the Nokia 3 X phones to access and use Google play store apps, Chrome browser and Google services. Of course Microsoft will tell it's X phones customers they will loose their X phone's warrantees if they remove the Microsoft/Nokia's UI and it's system tiles. some Android Fans will hate this however they will reluctantly accept using the X phone's UI which microsoft should change to look more similar to the standard Windows 8/8.1 UI so it is consistent with the UI Microsoft now use's on all it's software. PS they need to change the shape of the tiles they look too homely to most people.
