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I say “Android (sort of)” is because there is no Google Play services in the Nokia X family of phones, instead it is been replaced by Microsoft Services.

Nokia Lumia 900 Review

Nokia Lumia 900 Review

Let me start off this review by saying that the Nokia Lumia 900 is what the Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone 7.5 should have been. The Nokia Lumia 800 felt like a rush job and Nokia Lumia 900 felt just right. Unfortunately, Microsoft just killed all the current Windows Phones out in the market with the announcement of Windows Phone 8 by saying that all current Windows Phone will not be upgradable to Windows Phone 8 and that includes the Nokia Lumia series.

If you are still interested in getting a Nokia Lumia 900, it is currently retailing for S$849 (including taxes & without contract) at all 3 operators (SingTel, M1, StarHub) in Singapore. I do hope that Nokia have some sort of attractive trade-in offers for current Lumia owners to upgrade to a new Lumia with Windows Phone 8 that will be announced at Nokia World 2012 (wild guess).
