Just goes to show how different things could have been if Nokia had just embraced android sooner...... no predatory Microsoft at the door, no Trojan Elop, still king of the hill......
AnonD-134749, 14 Mar 2014AOSP is not stock android. do a serch in net and find outThat was a confusing statement also. AOSP = Android Open Source Project is "Stock Android". Google Android is AOSP + Google Apps. There is a difference between pure Android and Google Android, technically Google bloat Nexus phones with all their apps.
How did are Nokia CEO s? For years everyone on the android camp told the Nokia people that androids would be the best pick.
But nooooo... they have to play dumb.
Now look at the pre order....
TOLD YOU SO NOKIA FANBOYS!!!!
Hmm, seems some die-hard WP fans are really worried with this Nokia Android phone :)
No worries, just let the worldwide sales do the talk. We can see soon enough, which phone is more capable :)
AnonD-60243, 14 Mar 2014its cool,though I would pick a lumia 525 over this any day.No. Lumia is dead now. Move to android urgent my friend
Roal, 14 Mar 2014Shows Nokia can still flex its muscels. I hope this phone succeeds in MS hands too. It will be... moreNO. Lumia sales will fall to zero!!! How wants that lumia when you have a nokia android??
Arthur, 14 Mar 2014I just wish people would stop calling it an Android-phone... It's an AOSP-phone running Micros... moreNO. You could replace ALL microsoft obsolete applications and install googleplay on rooted nokiaX!!!
windroid, 14 Mar 2014continue forked android and release a mid/high end device if possible. now windows is becoming... moreYou clearly doesnt understand nokia is not longer exist . Its microsoft , why would they make android phone and abandon their own os .
Actually nokia has lanched new version andriod & for the same time this kind of model has lanched bbm option this is major reason so we like this models phone
AnonD-134749, 14 Mar 2014AOSP is not stock android. do a serch in net and find outI'm sorry about that.
Arthur, 14 Mar 2014I just wish people would stop calling it an Android-phone... It's an AOSP-phone running Micros... moreIt is Android and runs Android apps, only the launcher reminds of tiles. AOSP = Android Open Source Project = Android, but without Google bloat/spy/track/adware. What's the problem? :-)
continue forked android and release a mid/high end device if possible. now windows is becoming great and more manufacturers are going to make win phones, it will not hurt competition and nokia can make both wp and android phones[if they have any device unit left]
I just wish people would stop calling it an Android-phone... It's an AOSP-phone running Microsofts ecosystem, so it's basically giving you the same experience as Windows Phone but much slower.
Shows Nokia can still flex its muscels. I hope this phone succeeds in MS hands too. It will be a winner for MS/Nokia is its can eat up the sales of lowend Android while leaving Lumia 520 sales relatively untouched and this can happen as price of both the phones slides and sales people can point the advantages of Lumia over the X.
I hope its only china. If this continue in whole world then its sad people cant understand true power and potential of windows phone.
Nokia would have been bigger than both Apple and Samsung, and they can still be, if they use Android on a phone with top spevs icluding 41 MP camera! The whole world wants this!
Let Microsft make software for computers, and Apple make tablets, while Nokia make phones!
