AnonD-83821, 24 Jun 2014just one statement from microsoft that the newly releasing nokia x platform 2.0 will not suppo... moreLOL!
1st of all: Stop using piece of s**t Android phones with outdated OS versions! (buy a HTC/Samsung flagship or former flagship and see how good it feels!);
2nd: Yeah, going back from the failed-before-release Nokia X programm to WP8/8.1 is a great idea! NOT! I'm never going to buy another WP8 smartphone and it's all because of the crap apps they have and NO SUPPORT for the store, you get 90% copycat or fake apps and that's it!
Good choice, friend!
darknite, 24 Jun 2014Then same rule will apply for Samsung, lg, Sony... Etc... most of their phones won't or did no... more...well, at least you get 3rd party devs to port a newer version of Android on them. I don't see this for X,X+,XL...
AnonD-275729, 24 Jun 2014Ah so because of "the necessary hardware upgrades"
the "software platform 2.0 ... moreIDK if monkeys are doing the works, but Sony seems to care about it's customers :)
And yeah, as an experienced Android user, it makes no sense why they cannot upgrade it to 4.3... maybe something that MS implemented poorly and cannot run under the old hardware?!
Don't waste your money
i think Nokia X2 will not to platform 3.0 someday
The Microsoft doesn't have a marketing strategy for X2. They want to force people buying it by eliminating previous X series. But they won't get anywhere near it. The little whatever customer who were loyal to Nokia would soon change factions if this goes on. They also say that there would be hardware limitations but actually its simply brute force. I would like point out the absence of equalizer in low end Lumia range phones in this context.
Wow, such upgrade, much Nokia!
...You guys should stick to WP and leave Android aside!
Woo... More fragmentation! Glad that I'm on Windows Phone instead....
I CAN believe Microsoft is doing this. They want to recoup some of the money Nokia put into developing these phones before the trash the whole line and push everyone to WP Crap. Read the article.
They did this before and it has NOTHING to do with the hardware. It should be obvious to everyone that Microsoft wants to push everyone to WP. If this story, WP style tiles interface and removing all google play services doesn't convince you then all I can say is, hello MS-WP fanboy.
I won't call them obsolete, the Nokia X devices would still get updates. They're entry level devices anyway, more or less the beta run. And they're not that popular anyway. Get to work Microsoft!
Why would Nokia enter the cheap android market, when there are so many others to pick from? I thought they were going to be different and give support. Apparently not. Little reason to consider Nokia X/X2.
As an X user, I don't mind too much.
I can see why they would do it - both to try and have a selling point for the new X2 devices, and well - it saves them the effort to try and rework their software to devices without a 'home' button. (which seems to be part one of the big software features).
Microsoft has a terrible management team. They just started selling X,X+ and XL and then they announced a newer series. To make things worse, they claimed that current series will not getting any updates. What are they trying to do? Try to shoot themselves in their legs??? Try to kill the sales of X series??? They should just say updates are being considered.
Come on people this phone is as cheap as chips!! You pay peanuts for a phone and then want the kitchen sink thrown in!! If you want proper software updates don't buy a £70 phone!!! Simples!!
Can't believe this is happening to me. I just bought the Nokia XL and sad to hear it cant upgrade. The same thing happened to me when I bought Nokia N900 running MEAMO OS.
For this price you can buy a new Nokia two times a year... and it will still cost you 1/3 of 1 iPhone.
"Microsoft first gen products are laboratory mouse, wait for second gen or forget it!"
A new image for this brand...
AnonD-276962, 24 Jun 2014Just buy Nokia XL and found that it is totally crap product. Please buy other brand instead of... moreso because of your usage of it you telling other people to buy other brand, nokia also has the Windows Phone line up of phones which are works great
