Nokia X2 is here and comes packed with a new version of Nokia X OS termed as “Nokia X software platform 2.0″. The new version has many useful enhancements like “Multitasking view”, enhanced pull-down bar, new Camera UI and some not so much required additions like extra Windows Phone like app drawer.
But the Windows Phone 7 – Windows Phone 8 update saga has repeated itself with the announcement that Nokia X OS v 2.0 is not coming to devices launched barely weeks back, like Nokia XL and Nokia X+, forget about Nokia X.
Because of the necessary hardware upgrades, the Nokia X software platform 2.0 won’t be available on Nokia X, Nokia X+ or Nokia XL. However, more updates will be coming to further improve the experience of those devices in the coming months.
The consolation of more updates may not be enough for many and Microsoft is sure going to face lots of flak from existing users. May be Microsoft’s executives still have some brilliant ideas about how to sell Nokia XL to buyers!!
