Nokia goes big on Android with 5" Nokia XL

Nokia's little green monster just got bigger

If you thought Nokia was going to stop at two Android phones, you were wrong: enter the Nokia XL, a 5-inch Android-based almost-phablet.

Specs are a bit sparse at the moment, but we do know there's a 5MP camera with flash and auto-focus, and a 2MP front-facing camera. That 5-inch screen is a WVGA affair, too.

Like all the Android-based Nokia X range, the XL comes without Google's Cloud services - instead, it focuses on Nokia and Microsoft's services like Skype (as you'd expect from a company in the process of being bought by the Windows-maker).

Here be snapdragons

The XL is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and there will be a dual SIM option. MicroSD fans will be pleased to hear of the inclusion of a microSD slot.

Coming in early Q2, the Nokia XL will be available in bright green, orange, blue, yellow, black and white, and it'll set you back €109 (around £90 / US$150 / AU$168).
