Nokia XL and me

Nokia is my first love for mobiles and Android is my current favorite operating system. While Nokia is slowly moving away from Symbian, more Nokias are coming on Windows Mobile OS. The recent interesting development is an Android based Nokia. Well, not very recent but the news isn’t that old. Why I’m writing this post here? I’ve finally got a chance to play around with a Nokia running it’s  modified version of Android OS. The new platform is called Nokia X and the phone I have in my hand right now is called Nokia XL. It’s not the first phone on Nokia X platform but my first Android Nokia.

It’s been only a few hours I’ve got it so can’t say much about it but this place is about to get filled with a lot of Nokia XL stuff, so stay tuned.

Here are a few photos form my pre-unboxing post :)
