Nokia has unveiled a new range of smartphones powered by Google’s Android operating system, even as it is being taken over by Microsoft, AFP has reported. The three Nokia X smartphone models use an “Android open-source platform” but are equipped with Nokia’s own Lumia user interface and they point users to Microsoft services, not Google’s, said Nokia France managing director Thierry Amarger. The devices are aimed at customers seeking a smartphone for less than €150 ($210), said Amarger.
