Nokia X!  Starting with a big story close to home, today is the launch of the Nokia X product series!    Per Nokia’s February 24th press-release, “Today at Mobile World Congress, Nokia underscored its commitment to connecting the next billion to the Internet by releasing five new affordable handsets, including Nokia X, a family of smartphones that run Android(TM) apps, Microsoft services and signature Nokia experiences.”

  • Nokia X  — 89 Euros rolling out immediately
  • Nokia X+  — 99 Euros (early 2nd Quarter, 2014)
  • Nokia XL  — 109 Euros (early 2nd Quarter, 2014)

The Nokia X series will come with Opera Mini pre-installed.   The affordability of the Nokia X starting at 89 Euros matches perfectly with the data compression provided by Opera Mini.  The low barrier of entry coupled with less expensive usage fits to Nokia’s target markets spanning Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. more
