Nokia betrayed Stephen Elop to embrace Android!
Stephen Elop will become the new CEO for the spinoff mobile division of Microsoft.
Sheryl Nome, 11 Feb 2014damn i misread the title as Weekly Shounen Jump : Nokia will release its first Android device ... moreSame here ^__^ I thought it was Weekly Shounen Jump. I'm waiting for the latest release of Naruto Manga when I stumbled upon the title of this Article.
I guess alot of you aren't looking at the plus points of android without google services.
+No Google bugging you to creat a G+ profile
+Less of the creepy 'Tell us more about you' stuff
+You still can install all android apps. How's that not good? Of course nokia will provide you with an App mart of their own. So don't worry
+It's nokia. Unmatched build quality
The whole world was waiting for nokia to release Android.
Also, Please DO NOT compare it with the your mid-high end phones. The best you can get in the Normandy's range will be a laggy samsung phone with touchwiz. Deal with it.
Guys, Nokia is only testing the water. This is their first Android phone. If things goes well, they can produce better phone in future.
As for the OS, we should see it as Nokia-Microsoft Android fork, not as Google Android. The same case with Amazon Android on kindle fire, etc.
It only natural for Nokia to reuse services that already available on Windows Phone, easier maintenance, and no reinventing the wheel. Expect to see Bing, SkyDrive, Nokia Music, Nokia Maps, and finally, Nokia-Microsoft Android Store.
I hope they also include Office & Xbox, but that's highly unlikely. MS will most probably keep those two exclusive to Windows Phone.
At least you'll be able to sideload most apps even if Play store is missing...
An android without google app and ios and the memory is not up to that of other phones like that of samsung,sonyericsion that means nokia has not get it right. We need that of end use smart phone the one with in built large memory and external memory.
Android platform without Google services? What's the fun in it?
