AnonD-4697, 25 Feb 2014Agree this will lead to a totally new breed of phones...on phones? maybe.. but on Android? nah, let me remind you about Amazon Kindle Fire family..
Lol 75% as wallpapers, screensavers and useless apps, no heavy games or real useful apps.
Programmer, 25 Feb 2014Most appmakers would not care if their app didn't work for 2% of the phones. Especially if tho... moreThey will start caring when the 2% starts giving them bad ratings in app stores like Amazon, Yandex etc. Also, will they say "no" to earning money too?
Nokia think they are playing safe but once the phone release they will be forced to release the full version of android in coming models or this will be there strategy to enter in android OS because they are shy to enter in android platform after long bull shit windows platform which literally collapsed the company
Most appmakers would not care if their app didn't work for 2% of the phones. Especially if those 2% were hacked android clones.
Nokia is not a memeber of Open Handset Alliance thus not bound to use exclusively Google-approved version of Android. Same thing Amazon does with Kindle and also unending line of anonymous (mainly chinese) manufacturers popping around the globe. AFAIK, you can install GPlay etc. on all of them... for now.
I am expecting more great mobile in android o's wit higher end device.
Nokia says 75% of all Android app are compatibile with nokia X. 😜 again beacuse of 512 mb ram. 😤
there is room for that phone on the market, there are a lot of Nokia fans who will buy it for sure, but the future ? will they build an real monster , using all the best that they have ? that would kill Samsung Galaxy for good, imagine a real Nokia Lumia with Android, with a 41 mp camera, free navigation, etc.
The Nokia Lumia 520 remains a strong alternative to these semi Android devices in Nokia's product portolio. The 520 is the world's best selling Windows Phone and for good reason.
Nokia is trying to make any f*** OS with tiles what is the problem with those tiles!!I don't think there are many who like this style.
x, 25 Feb 2014Nokia = bad decision after bad decision after bad decision..I agree..
Nokia is giving Google a punch straight to the face. Using android but, not agreeing to Googles terms, thus using their own mapping, navigation and music services. So Google is not permitting them the right to use Play Store. But you can still use about all Googles apps xD. I'm not a fan of Nokia, actually using Xperia Z, but man Nokia did a clever trick there.
