Live in Barcelona as Nokia Unveils Nokia X, Its First Android Phone

CEO Stephen Elop is focusing on the non-Windows Phone side of Nokia's business, introducing new basic and feature phones, in addition to Nokia X.

In what is shaping up to be Nokia’s last big phone launch before joining Microsoft, the Finnish phone maker plans to talk about a range of products — none of which are Windows Phones.

Indeed, no new Windows Phones are expected in Barcelona.

Rather, Nokia is using the show to talk about the rest of its mobile phone business, a unit that includes everything from basic phones to the near-smartphone Asha line. Sources have also said that Nokia has been working on a new phone based on Android, albeit with Microsoft and Nokia services replacing the standard fare from Google.

Re/code will have live coverage from Nokia’s event, which will start momentarily.
