Nokia Announces The Nokia 220, Nokia Asha 230 and three smartphones in the new Nokia X family At MWC


Nokia on Monday announced five new phones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona today. The phones are the Nokia 220, the Nokia Asha 230 and three smartphones in the new Android-based Nokia X family: the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL.

Nokia is targeting emerging markets with a low-cost smartphone that uses Google's Android operating system rather than the Windows Phone software from Microsoft.

The new Nokia X phone announced Monday will emphasize Microsoft services such as Bing search, Skype communications and OneDrive file storage.

The Nokia X family features Nokia's design with a tile-based user interface inspired by the company's Lumia family. All devices come with Fastlane, a screen which lets people switch between their apps. People can access apps from Nokia Store, third-party app stores and by sideloading. Out of the box, they can enjoy free HERE Maps, with offline maps and integrated turn-by-turn navigation, and Nokia MixRadio for free music streaming and downloadable playlists.

Because the Nokia X family uses Android, it will be able to run most Android apps. However, app developers may have to tweak some of their software because the phone doesn't have key Google services.

The Nokia X family is also an affordable introduction to Microsoft services, including cloud storage using OneDrive. With the purchase of any Nokia X family smartphone in select markets, people will get one month of Skype's Unlimited World Subscription for a limited time.

The first device, the Nokia X, comes with a 4" IPS (800 x 480 resolution) capacitive display, a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor and a 3MP camera. It's joined by the Nokia X+ which has more storage and an SD card slot. The Nokia XL is a bigger 5-inch screen and has a 5MP rear camera with autofocusand flash, and 2-megapixle forward facing camera.

Both the Nokia X and Nokia X+ will be available in bright green, bright red, cyan, yellow, black and white.

The entire Nokia X family is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor and supports Dual SIM.

The Nokia X will go on sale immediately, starting at EUR 89 and rolling-out in Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. The Nokia X+ and Nokia XL are expected to roll out in these markets starting early second quarter, priced at EUR 99 and EUR 109, respectively.

At the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, Spain, Nokia announced two even cheaper phones on Monday:

  • The Nokia 220 is meant as a starter phone for 29 euros ($40). It will have Facebook, Twitter and some games already installed, but users won't be able to add apps. It comes with a 2.4" colour screen, dust- and splash-proof keypad, and comes with Facebook and Twitter pre-loaded and Bing as the default search engine in the pre-loaded Nokia Xpress browser.

  • The 45-euro ($62) Nokia Asha 230 phone is meant for people who are not yet ready for the Nokia X. It comes with a touch screen, but lacks the power and versatility found in smartphones. The Nokia Asha 230 includes all the benefits of the Nokia Asha Software Platform, including Fastlane and access to social apps like Line, WeChat and WhatsApp. One swipe up from the lockscreen activates the Nokia Asha 230's camera. With a forthcoming software update, the Nokia Asha 230 will introduce 7GB of free cloud storage on Microsoft OneDrive, and the option to automatically back up photos to the cloud.


Global apps will be available at launch for the Nokia X family of devices, including Facebook, LINE Free Voice and Messages, LINE Camera, LINE Bubble, Picsart, Plants vs. Zombies 2, Real Football 2014, Skype, Spotify, Swiftkey, Twitter, Viber, Vine and WeChat, among others. And in a first for Nokia users around the world, Blackberry's BBM mobile messaging platform will also be available on the Nokia X family of devices in addition to Windows Phone.

Nokia is also creating even more opportunities for Android developers. Also announced today are extensions to allow them to publish their apps to the Nokia Store, and to create new experiences for the Nokia X family using a wide range of new APIs for imaging, entertainment and other services, including operator billing, which takes advantage of Nokia’s agreements with more than 160 operators across 60 markets.

While the bulk of today’s news concerned more affordable devices, at today’s press conference Nokia also announced news for Windows Phone.

Nokia's partners such as Facebook, BBM, Twitter, LINE, Viber, Electronic Arts, Gameloft and Rovio are making their key apps available across Nokia’s device portfolio of feature phones, Asha, Nokia X and Lumia. Facebook Messenger will also be coming soon across Nokia’s four tiers of products.
