Have a look at what you can't have. Won't be available in the US, Canada, Korea, and Japan. Whaahaaaaaa.
Nokia should provide nokia store for android also. I am sure nokia has better app control than google. I hate all those fake and cloned apps in playstore.
send google play store, gmail....etc to the nokia x through share app

What a chunck of junk. It reminds me of a set of building blocks a child has. Really Really ugly.
Save yourself the money Nokia and kill this product now.
I think nokia put android in they os system is to be promoted their windows phones.. It seam an android os but let see the big picture.. Its just like theme in their phone.. Its android theme in the windows phone os mobile.. Even though its android but main source their os is windows phone.. Its just to attract their customers.. But let see the behind the scene.. Nokia is microsoft.. Lumia still their main project.. The x phone just side project as beat.. But I'm apreciated nokia.. Their move on to next step.. Let see in 6 month or 1 year again.. The x phone will development or not.. Include update os and upgrades hardware.. Ganbate nokia.. I still miss you like the old time.. When nokia rule the world.. I still have my nokia 3330 nokia 8210 nokia 2630 nokia nokia 6600 1280 nokia c6 nokia ngage nokia 1110 nokia 5800 nokia 6630 nokia 3660 nokia n90 nokia e7 nokia e63 nokia express music 5130c and expres music 5730 and my favorite is nokia 9210 communicator (unfortunately seal flash and led broken hiks.. Hiks.. ) But sorry I don't have lumia series cause its very expensive in my country..(Android effect is booming in my country) Nokia is tough hardware and battery.. Btw nokia 3330 its awesome phone.. I had been used it for 6,5 years (6 times battery replaced).. Its my first nokia phone.. I love it..

They aren't tracking you, stealing your data, selling your data, giving it to NSA, serving your advertisements etc. You still get some Microsoft inside but they are a little more serious company. And you can get apps for it anywhere - Nokia Store, Yandex, Opera Store, GetJar, Amazon etc. P.s. the ducks are telling you to buy it! :-D
Why Nokia choose this worthless weak SOC and not MTK6572 ?? its more then 12K on Antutu with strong GPU.
150$ is too much for this old weak Tech!
