Yesterday I went to a nokia priority dealer in Pune, India and when asked the service guy showed me the green nokia x ( rooted ). The "go launcher" was in action and it was neatly smooth. But I never knew nokia would root the phone to customers officialy.
looks great with the rooted format. ( to be honest much better than the asha borrowed fastlane concept. Fastlane is good for a feature phone I believe. In the default nokia x launcher, whatver app we download will go to the primary screen, which will make the user scroll a lot.)
A rooted nokia x is a feast to eyes and recommended.
Although I prefer Android any day above M$, but at this price point rather than going for a severly limited Android experience (if you can call it Android... ), I would go for Lumia 520, which at least won't have any surprises. And I humbly believe so will most users...
Benzino, 16 Mar 2014It didn't have milion pre-orders but they will sell more than that...agreed, no one manufacturer called as top leaders provide better device in this segment as best once in terms of durability along with functionality, and if some android user does nt know this, he better shud stuck with the flagship devices of the other leading companies, Nokia's android is right now meant for those who are from emerging markets, and if you do nt know see stats of those markets, Nokia Asha series at about $80 sells very well against Android in these markets, so u can judge how strong Nokia's market and how people like Nokia their, so do nt judge Nokia's android as it is not worth buying for u, yhink global effect, and Nokia's global names, this phone has been as awaited as some one was awaiting for S5 or now waiting for iphone 6 :)
Arif, 16 Mar 2014Personally, I don't think this phone will sell as well as people are speculating, another fail... moreWell, everyone already knows that Nokia made an Android. Anyway, bad PR move, did they think people won't find out? I posted about it in the comments of the original news this evening.
so, will pre-order previewing the sales figure??? i don't think so. it doesn't reach a million in pre-order; but don't forget the phone is just unveil not long times ago. so maybe it would boost sales to 5 millions per-quarter??? 8 millions per-quarter??? who knows??
Personally, I don't think this phone will sell as well as people are speculating, another fail Elop.
This phone does not utilise Google Services, and is not the norm interface; as a result it almost removes all the aspects of an Android device. Therefore the consumers will not realise this is an Android device, and will see it as another feature phone.
Of course, it can be modded to look like more like Android (Nova Launcher), plus Google Apps can now be installed; but not everyone will tinker their Nokia X range devices.
It won't be an absolute fail either, I'm just saying the sales won't be as grand as many are expecting. No hate either, keeping it real.
