nokia x2

Microsoft has released a new software update for its Android-based Nokia X2 smartphone that includes adding support for connecting to Google's Gmail service, along with some other changes and additions.

The Android phones from Nokia have previously done away from offering any direct access to things like the Google Play Store so this update offers owners of the Nokia X2 access to a couple of Google services. Here's the change log for the update:

  • Capture fast-moving objects with the new Smart Mode, and create unique photos by using the Action shot, Best shot, or Motion blur options.
  • Make your phone more personal than ever with live wallpapers and new lock screen widgets.
  • Keep your life synced with OneDrive and OneNote. Get up to 15 GB of personal storage space on OneDrive, and sync up to 500 notes to OneNote.
  • Access your favorite Google services. You can now sync your Google contacts, and access your Gmail inbox.
  • Find your way anywhere with HERE Maps - get turn-by-turn voice guidance with a free global navigation license. Requires additional HERE Maps update from Store.
  • Updated Store - new design to help you find content more easily, and better integration with 3rd-party stores.
  • Added local calendar support, call reject with a message, parental controls for Store, landscape support for mail and messaging, and auto-configuration of mail accounts.
