Nokia X Lands in the Philippines

 Karel Holub, General Manager of Nokia Philippines, officially introduced the Nokia X in the Philippines.

Introduced to the world a few weeks back at the Mobile World Congress 2014 (MWC 2014), Nokia X is now officially available in the Philippines. Nokia X is part of the new Nokia X family of smartphones, and one of the first Nokia phones to run Android apps in addition to the Microsoft services and other signature Nokia experiences.

The Nokia X comes with a hip and trendy design suitable even for the fashion-conscious users. It comes in White, Black, Bright Red, and Bright Green colors, with Bright Green as one of the instant favorites during the launch because of its eye-catching appeal and it's relatable to BugDroid's (Android's popular robot found on its logo) color.

All new units of Nokia X are already pre-loaded with a variety of popular third-party apps and games.

An innovation added to the Nokia X is its free access to HERE Maps that provides true offline maps and integrated turn-by-turn navigation. It also has Nokia MixRadio for free music streaming and downloadable playlists. It also an affordable introduction to Microsoft service such as the free cloud storage on OneDrive.
