I was taken aback when I first heard that Nokia was working on Android devices and out of those imprecise number of devices, one was them was the “Mountain View” according to sources. In a short time, I was referred to multiple posts about “Normandy” which was believed to be the project N by Nokia and a missing link that would bridge the gap between the Android and Lumia users. I was muddied by these code names and so I thought I will make it even simpler. I started to assume that Normandy is the Project N which deals with Nokia Android devices and Mountain View is a device from the Normandy Project. In a nutshell, I am thinking that Mountain View is one of the devices from Normandy or the project N. Now, Mountain Views are generally big so I further fancy that Mountain View should be the Nokia XL!
Well, here we are, Nokia XL is the nucleus of this blog now!
Nokia has announced that the flagship device of the X series will be made available in Asia Pacific Region (APAC) and India, Middle East & Africa (IMEA) starting Wednesday however Nokia XL is currently not available in the Indian Market since the price of the device is yet to be finalized. This will precisely be available very very shorty in India. This phone is expected to be priced slightly above 109 Euros after the local taxes and subsidies. I expect this device to be priced between Rs.10, 000 to RS. 13,000 here in India.

Nokia XL is Lumia’s style build quality with Android OS which is the perfect compound in that price range. However, the low screen resolution and the low Spec makes it compete only with the starters in Android market. Nevertheless, the Mountain View from the Normandy is always scenic!
