MdN8, 20 Feb 2014That's the point. No Google spyware in it. It has Nokia maps and it will have a Store. There's no auto shortcut but Google PLay is just an app that you can install anyway and get access to the store... might require rooting if Nokia have blocked some things. Same for Google Maps.
Jed, 20 Feb 2014There's no Nokia logo on the phone. Perhaps this is a Microsoft phone now?What?? Nokia is still Nokia by the way. Microsoft will only do the handshake and pay end of this quarter. So no, this phone with droid on is a pure Nokia move.
ExNokiaFan, 20 Feb 2014What`s a point use android with no maps, google play, widgets, wallpaper & etc..Exactly.

lets all thought about those days .the days were nokia ruled the mobile world.s40,s60,meego,belle,anna,asha, different different os came to us they all sold like hot cakes ,but the faith was different ,a company called samsung came to make a war ,as android a weapon so nokia need to do something to withstand then they made a weapon called windows but unfortunatively it didnt go so long then nokia take strength in low cost budget field introducing asha range of phones ,as it is just a java based one it didnt boost that much apps to fought against cheap androids ...at last nokia has decided to overcome this crisie by the same weapon they use???yes its andriod but a forked version by their highly appreciated hear maps and office apps and the long list of greats apps ,in a small budget ,the features it offer is highly jaw dropping .the design the built quality really impressive at this price point ....the path is clear ,the right road to success.lets hope the old king will come to rule again stronger and stronger............

I think the oddest part of this is Microsoft have bought Nokia and have started using android on there phones.
I don't see a flash on the back, so yesterday's photo 'taken with flash' was a fake after all. :-/
Offline navigation has been available for Google Maps since ages. And its free worldwide
Why not use both Here and Google Maps, and also use Google Play, are they not free to use?
I want to see Here maps on android. I miss offline navigation. I don't regard the apps available as good as Here maps.
