Nokia to live stream its press event on Feb. 24; posts another Nokia X teaser

The signs continues to grow that Nokia will announce a smartphone using Google's Android OS next week at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Spain. Today, Nokia offered a reminder that it will hold a press conference at the show on Monday and included a new teaser logo to boot.

The official Nokia blog didn't state what would be revealed at the press conference, but the logo hints that most of the rumors surrounding the phone, Nokia X, are indeed correct. As we have reported before, Internet leaks have strongly suggested the phone will have a 4-inch display, a dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and only 512MB of RAM and will be targeted towards the budget minded consumer. While the Nokia X will use Android, the rumors claims that it will be heavily modified for the phone, with its own UI similar to that of Microsoft's Modern interface.

Nokia will live stream its World Mobile Congress press event on its blog. It is scheduled to begin on Monday at 8:30 am Barcelona time, which means it will begin at 2:30 am Eastern Time and 11:30 pm Sunday in the Pacific Time zone.

This must be highly embarrassing for Microsoft. Nothing says a vote of no confidence like your exclusive star OEM unveiling a product running your competitor's OS.

So will Nokia still have it's own phone division after the sale to MS? Is this phone going to be under MS's control after the sale?

no, it will all be under Microsoft

Then I don't understand the point of releasing this phone then. The whole thing about Windows Phone is that it is more efficient than Android (especially a heavily modified Android). Why not just stick Windows Phone on this.

Also, I do understand why they would at least have experiemental builds, etc. Mainly for testing, or seeing what the competition is capable of, but I don't understand the point of the release of this phone to market.

That's clearly Xbox green with an X in the middle. Nokia is releasing an Xbox

And of course it is going to be indestructible! LOL

The lack of teasers for other lumias has me worried. People claiming they were waiting for an android lumia wouldn't have bought one anyway. I would rather see a non phablet 1520 equivalent.

The Nokia icon is the 1520 equivalent.

I am getting the feeling that Nokia is trolling everybody knowing that just in time Microsoft will pull the plug. As for Microsoft letting this go through I hope not, this will give enough fuel to the Android fanbase to reason that Android is better than Windows Phone, which is not. And as feature goes if 8.1 appears to fix more of the required one so people stop crying about it. WP is a much better framework for an OS.

LOL...Are you kidding? Android phones have the power, the speed, the apps, the ecosystem, the services, that Windows Phone would dream for. Not only that, but can you customize Windows Phone to your exact liking? Windows Phone does not even contribute a single thing into the mobile space at all.

Power and speed have nothing to do with android and services like office, skydrive and Xbox music are arguably better than android equivalents. You need to go back to your cave.

"VictorWho" is exactly what I think of you. Speed is NOT one thing android is known for. They come in quad core and yet still lags. Give me a break.

Repeat after me: "Android does not have magical powers that magically turn companies profitable".

The development of Windows Phone 8.x is a long term project - any one remember what Android and iOS looked like in the early days? Honestly, you'd think that Android fanboys want a monoculture in the smartphone OS market.

Ooops! Forgot to mention the malware. Must have forgot.
