Mobile World Congress in Video: Meet Nokia's new Android phones

Nokia is looking to make a splash at Mobile World Congress with a trio of Android phones. On Monday, Florence Ion brought you the details about Nokia’s long-rumored Android devices. Now she’s taking you on a video tour of the new phones.

In this video, we’ll show you why these aren’t your typical Android phones: They’re built on the Android Open Source Project. Instead of using Google services, they use Nokia’s backend services. The result is a trio of phones in which Android has gotten a Windows Phone-style makeover.

The phones featured in this video include the Nokia X, the Nokia X+ (which features a little more RAM), and the 5-inch Nokia XL. Nokia’s planning to bring these phones to what it calls “growth markets.” Mark Hachman of PCWorld has more details on what Microsoft, which now owns Nokia’s devices and services business, thinks of these new Android phones.
