Nokia Launched 3 New Smartphones in World Mobile Congress 2014. In that Nokia X and Nokia X+ both almost same specs. But prices wise Nokia X+ in a bit more.  My opinion is instead of launching  3 Smartphones  Launch One Hight end Smartphone and one mid range phone. But Nokia trying 3 mid range Smartphones at once.  Let’s wait till new Quarter and see how the Mid range phones reaching the market.
