its like an emulators, run a different type of games, like android X, runs the android system. Holy great !
Anonymous, 24 Feb 2014I wonder if these phones will receive the android 5.0 lollipop update?C'mon man, connect the brain to your fingertips... LOL
This is what we have been waiting for, my dream is finally coming true. Nokia will rule the mobile world again.
Expect Nokia dual OS, Window 8 Phone & Android
After looking this hands on, I got a bittersweet thinking about this so called "android". First I got to say this would be a hell of a phone for non tech savy people. But not a very good idea for people lokking for a "customizable" UI.
anyway having options is something ok, good work nokia.
Omfg, i have lumia 520 too, 2 months later became new Nokia x series...
AnonD-4697, 24 Feb 2014Wrong Nokia X Dont support sideloading. Please dont mislead people. This is an Forked Version ... moreYOu know when you comment something make sure you are atleast right. Even if its a "forked" version of android it /will/ support side-loading just like kindle fire does.
how miserable , Nokia killed its outclass Symbion . Asha series have limited internal memory , Qvga screens. Failed to gain popularity in Windows phones despite sucking MS funds. Now Android without Google???
AnonD-106979, 24 Feb 2014I'll choose Nokia X+ or Nokia XL.Great stuff....Android appz+Here services+best hardware.Expecting high end models in future..
AnonD-147726, 24 Feb 2014Do you know....No playstore on nokia x android!!!! android without gmail & chrome??? WTF???Brilliant, isn't it? Hey, if you like losing data and being spied on, get another Android WITH Play and Chrome. Your choice.
AnonD-4697, 24 Feb 2014Wrong Nokia X Dont support sideloading. Please dont mislead people. This is an Forked Version ... moreSo what if it is forked? It's simply Android without Google bloat/spy/ware inside. It DOES support sideloading. What's your source? You can get apps from Yandex Store, Nokia Store, 15 other stores, or put them on your card/phone and install from there. That's the whole point.
"This translates into users being able to install new applications, possibly even a launcher, on their Nokia X phone. Though Google apps may be installed via APKs, it is possible that certain apps may not work, as Nokia may have purposefully omitted some APIs which would be necessary to run Google’s apps. However, given Android’s open source nature, we believe some dev would sooner rather than later re-compile Google Apps to run on the Nokia X."
AnonD-236818, 24 Feb 2014BOSS IS BACK! ]NOKIA[ BYE BYE SAMSUNG. UI is pretty smooth not as SAMSUNG's Touchwiz. Build... moreSold off to Microsoft. No funds to start afresh. So, how is Nokia going to "rule the smartphone market"?
Do you know....No playstore on nokia x android!!!!
android without gmail & chrome???
I think we have the pictures of the device other way round i.e. handon for Asha 230 showing pictures of Asha 220 and other way around.
MdN8, 24 Feb 2014Yes it does support sideloading and also there are like 15 Android app stores to choose from. ... moreWrong Nokia X Dont support sideloading. Please dont mislead people. This is an Forked Version of Android NOT an full one.
Unfortunate ... again Nokia is confusing everbody ... Half cook Droid ? Jailbroken Droid ? Or something else entirely ? Better if Nokia focus more in consistently pushing Mobile Windows thru to be a worthy contender of Google Droids throne ... I ve been a loyal Droid user ... ( thus the Googlyst nick name ) ... and honestly have been considering to try Windows Nokia ... but the "neither nor" offered by the crosdressed Nokia does not appeal me at all .... Cmon Nokia !! You can much better ..
BOSS IS BACK! ]NOKIA[
BYE BYE SAMSUNG.
UI is pretty smooth not as SAMSUNG's Touchwiz.
Build quality is A+
That day is not far when NOKIA & LG will rule the smartphone market.
AnonD-79018, 24 Feb 2014Some important information plz read this.
Taken from international business times.
http://... moreInteresting article but I doubt if it will hold for long.
Nokia X line will expand more, while Lumia will shrink to just few flagship phones. I can see that Nokia in future will be dominated by X lines of android phone.
Unless MS do something groundbreaking with WP9/10/above, I doubt WP market will grow any further.
