I hope it doesn't take away the powerful productiveness and customizations that pure Android offers

In this particular instance, we've seen nothing exciting from Samsung so far, while Nokia is bringing all it's got to the game.
If this results in losing market share back to Nokia, Samsung definitely have something to worry about.
Still long way to go for Nokia.. However this will bring a new competition..

So an era is over, Apple and Googles android is now out of the picture, from now on Nokia X is the only phone to buy, according to our great analyst jimmyunited that is.
Personally i think Apple and Samsung can go to bed at night without worrying about Nokia X, and they will continue to laugh all the way to the bank while Nokia continues their proud tradition of using red ink for their net profit numbers from the handset division.
Some important information plz read this.
Taken from international business times.
In regard to Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia's phone-making business, Elop explained his company's future: "Lumia continues to be our primary smartphone strategy and gives people the benefit of Microsoft cloud-based services. [The] Nokia X family serves fast-growing affordable smartphone segment for people in growth markets. X will generally be priced below the Lumia family.
"Customers should expect to see in the future Lumia getting cheaper, and X pushed up to just below that. Nokia X gives people a gateway to Microsoft.
"Nokia X becomes a feeder system for Lumia, deliberately using Android without Google's cloud services, instead substituting MS and Nokia services. Introduces the next billion people to Microsoft."
Microsoft's cloud, not Google's:
Essentially, the Nokia X and Nokia X+ are running a forked version of Android, in the same way Amazon does with its Kindle Fire tablets. It may be Android, running Android applications, but most users would consider this to be Nokia's own user interface with much in common with Windows Phone.
This approach allows Android developers to easily bring their apps to the Nokia X in just a few hours, or even less than that.
The sub-€100 range is a "massive opportunity" for Nokia, with that area expected to grow four times faster than the rest of the smartphone market.
Nokia is going to Rock the world again, Nokia X Series is going to make other brands nevious, Thank u Nokia
loco-loco, 24 Feb 2014Why do you care Google Play so much?Because an Android device with Windows Phone look and no Google services is completly pointless
samsung launched dual sim phones 2 years before nokia,samsung launched android phones 3 years before nokia, now nokia is launching android phones.
i am a big fan of Nokia but still i don't think they will match samsung in all aspects.
