In the wee hours of the morning on Monday, Stephen Elop took the stage to announce the worst-kept secret in the mobile industry: Nokia is releasing a phone powered by Android. The Nokia X comes in three flavors and many more colors, with a completely different version of Android that eschews most of Google's services, and all of its aesthetic ideas, for Microsoft's.

So for news and posterity in equal measure, take a look back at the last big, colorful splash from Nokia at Mobile World Congress 2014.
