After much heavy rumor, Nokia has just announced that it’s launching its first Android handsets: the X, X+ and XL.

All the phones are built on the open source Android OS forked especially for Nokia. The X and X+ feature a 4-inch screen, while the XL packs a 5-inch IPS display. The X+ is differentiated from the X by extra memory and expandable storage, though it’s not clear quite what that means in terms of specs.

During the Mobile World Congress presentation, Steve Elop explained that users will “benefit from the Android apps and ecosystem, but we have differentiated.” Essentially that means that there will plenty of Microsoft and Nokia apps included from the get go. Skype, for instance, will be preinstalled, and offer users 1 month of free calls to landlines and mobiles, and Nokia’s navigation apps will feature, too.

More importantly, the phones take people to Microsoft’s cloud, not Google’s. Indeed, it seems Nokia is distancing itself from Google as much as possible with these Android devices, and Elop went as far as saying that the “Nokia X together with Lumia represents a deliberate strategy to leverage Microsoft services.” There will, though, be plenty—”hundreds of thousands at launch,” apparently—of conventional Android apps available through a Nokia-specific app store.

Price, you ask? Well, Steve Elop was keen to point out that the X range is designed to be more affordable than the Lumia range, both now and in the the future. The phone will be “broadly available globally”, starting in growth markets, and they’ll cost $125 for the X, $135 for the X+, and $150 for the XL

How to Watch the Samsung Galaxy S IV Launch Online


We’re just hours away from the Samsung Galaxy S IV smartphone launch in New York City, the first time the Korean manufacturer will unveil a device in the U.S. and not overseas.

The event — which kicks off at 7:00 p.m. ET at Radio City Music Hall, just blocks away from competitor Apple’s flagship store — will be live streamed viaSamsung Mobile’s YouTube page and broadcast in Times Square. We’ve also embedded the stream above for your viewing pleasure.

For those following along on Twitter, Samsung is urging fans to use the hashtag #Unpacked, a reference to its much-hyped “Unpacked” marketing campaign.

There has been a lot of fanfare leading up to the event. First, it handed out paper invitations at Mobile World Congress conference last month — a move we’d expect from Apple — by drawing attention away from the show and onto its upcoming launch. Then, the company organized a flash mob.

There have also been teaser trailers and a tweet from Samsung of a picture of Galaxy S IV shown amid a shadowy background.

So what are we expecting? If leaked images and videos are any indication, we will likely see the device run on Android 4.2.2. and tout a quad-core 1.8GHz processor, 5-inch (1080p) display, 13-megapixel camera and 2GB of RAM. Features such as Floating Touch, Eye Scroll and SmartPause are also rumored, as well.

Earlier this week, images that were purportedly of Samsung’s (005930) upcoming Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet leaked onto the Web. The slate looked like an oversized Galaxy S III smartphone and included the company’s physical home button, which had perviously been omitted from earlier Galaxy tablets. French blog Frandroid posted additional images of the tablet on Friday that confirmed it will include an S-Pen stylus, similar to the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note 10.1.Image

The Galaxy Note 8.0 is rumored to be equipped with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The slate is also believed to include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot and Android 4.2.

Samsung is expected to announce the Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet next month at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
