With Nokia Connects at Mobile World Congress 2014 – Part 1

Thanks to Nokia Connects (@Nokia_Connects) for the invite to Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014! This is my third trip to such a big event with Nokia Connects. The first was Nokia World 2011 in London and the second was Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona, Spain.

Our itinerary for this year MWC was shorter by a day. Despite it being shorter by a day, I find this year trip is more relaxing! We flew in on Sunday, 23rd February 2014 and flew back on Wednesday, 26th February 2014.

Nokia First Android Phones: Nokia X, Nokia X+ & Nokia XL

Nokia has launched their first family of phones running on Android (sort of) at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014.

The reason why I say “Android (sort of)” is because there is no Google Play services in the Nokia X family of phones, instead it is been replaced by Microsoft Services.
