y do u people talking if u dont know anything the nokia is not making an android phone android is an opensource os which was bought by google and put all the google stuff like playstore,google map,play music u know most of us dont use all these things but which uses the ram and drains the battery nikia might have directly bought android from their real owners that is why its not included google stuffs and the plus point is u can use android with complete privacy like symbian and also 512mb ram would be enough cause of missing google crap apps cause most ram is taken by those apps. the only thing i wonder is can we install an apk file from outside like that in symbian if not its a crap if yes its a boombox
Why do ppl talk such garbage about things they know nothing about! If you've got nothing to say SHUTUP

This is for "eliminate" Asha models from market...
Is Nokia going mad? They need a killer phone like s4 /note 3 etc not phone for kids with all old hardware and make it more boring that it have no access to Google market.why and who bought it. May be just kids?if they want to see them again phone king and we all want to see our king back on number 1 position. see Motorola BlackBerry slowly slowly .....?
Now wp market is OK as well as so if if they stay on wp is OK for them or if making android give buyer 100% free choice not stop them from Google services. if any company make phone like that is die before launch.
Nokia X run ANDROID 4.4 KITKAT but u wont be able to access GOOGLE's product and will be replace with BING's product
so .. if all I want is to text, check emails and make the odd phone call but can't access the PLay store (? ) this is a problem...
Price is great...

I've yet to see any Android phone that does not allow y... moreDid you believe nokia born yesterday?, of course they can do that, they know about business, they can release an locked version and just let the basis of Android OS, not a fully functional Android Phone. Even Google will kill root possiblities in a near future and thats a fact.
Besides Google will not allow Nokia phones run Play Store or APk and REMEMBER Nokia is NOT releasing an Android phone is A FORKED ANDROID phone.....since Nokia is using just the code not the entire ecosystem of Android.
People need to define between Android Phone and Forked Version of Android. Dont let your mind fly that high....
Nokia Will not Come with Android.
it`ll be Asha Plateform. it`s some Feature May be same as Android ... But not Android KitKat as Mentioned.
Erna, 15 Feb 2014There are lots of apps in Play Store that contains malware. Nokia still wants every one of it'... moreSure... that must be the one and only explanation, nothing to do with getting their own cut from sales in their own store, the fact they need to monetize their own services and past acquisitions (Maps for instance) or even the part where they are now within the Microsoft universe of services (Bing, Office, Outlook, etc).
Oh well, but if you say it's only to protect their costumers from malware (that may or may not exist in Google Play) then who am I to argue.
U don't need the play store to download apps bypass Google thats why it is called open source u don't need Google if don't want them freedom of choice LOL
I'm glad to read this topic on online that Nokia phone is comes with android..., i suggess nokia product should make android & windows RT, if it is possible nokia corporation, just image how is it?
There are lots of apps in Play Store that contains malware. Nokia still wants every one of it's consumer to be protected so they're making sure that each and every Android app that will be included in their own Nokia Android Store is legit.
But people keep ur eyes open , the os running on normandy is not going to be GOOGLE's ANDROID but it will be AOSP ( Android Open Source Project )
