Nokia Edge 2017 Gsmarena Price, Specification, Launch Date: For some years now, the Finnish company, Nokia has been focusing mainly on designing smartphones powered by the Windows OS. But in 2017, this is not the case as seen by its release of 5 android smartphones some of which are: the Nokia 3, 5, and 6. Among these devices and the most anticipated Nokia device in 2017, is the Nokia Edge. It is a high end device that is already competing with the world’s current best selling smartphones, that is, the Iphone 7 Plus and Google Pixel XL. The Android OS is the most popular OS among smartphone users, and very few fancy the Windows OS. One of the reasons for Android's popularity is its easy to use interface and ability for users to easily share files amongst themselves. One would wonder why it took Nokia this long to finally join the trend of manufacturers with devices running on the Android OS, but then, i think they wanted to remain unique.
