I am sure that apart from these phones there will be many other smartphones releasing in the market next month. So I will try to update here whenever i get the information.

Nokia is currently the top player in the Microsoft’s Windows Phone Os based devices. Company is ramping up its smartphones inventory with beautiful, durable and affordable smartphone running on the latest WP8 platform.

So the company has introduced a smartphone with similar properties of the Xperia Z i.e, elegant design and beautiful looks.
USP of Xperia L is its 8MP primary camera which is integrated with Exmor RS sensor supporting HDR photos and 720p HD video recording. Inline with NL 720 even the Xperia L has a 4.3 inch LCD touch display but running on the android Jelly Bean platform.
