Today during Microsoft’s Build conference, Nokia announced three new Windows Phones. And yes, among those are both the much-leaked Lumia 630 as well as the Lumia 930, a handset that at one point was said not to be outed on this occasion. Alas, it was.

Nokia has proudly announced that it’s gotten more than one million pre-orders for the Nokia X in China in just a few days. Because of the...

Nokia X series won’t be available in the US, Canada, Korea, or Japan

A couple of days ago, before Samsung underwhelmed everybody with the Galaxy S5, Nokia shocked the mobile world by announcing a trio of Android-powered handsets – the X, X+, and XL. These are all low-end offerings, and neither supports any Google services (the Play Store included), so you’ll have to make do with Microsoft services and a Nokia application store.

In a shocking move, Nokia announced three Android-powered smartphones today. Shocking it would have been, had details about at least one of these not leaked extensively over the past few weeks.

But no, the Nokia X is real. And so are the...
