Nokia Reveals A New Line of Phones Running On The Android OS

Nokia has unveiled a new line of smartphones at the Mobile World Congress 2014 that were rumored for a long time, the Nokia X series which feature 3 all-new phones, the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and the Nokia XL and the new thing about those phones is that the phones run on Google's Android OS.

The phone that is released to the people, right now, is the Nokia X. Nokia X is basically a budget Android phone that costs only $120 dollars. The specifications of the phone are:
  • Dual-Sim
  • 4 Inch Display running on 800x600
  • 1Ghz Dual-Core Qualcomm SoC Processor
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB Internal Storage, with SD card support
But here's the plot-twist. The Android OS in this phone isn't exactly the Android OS you would expect. It is a modified version of the Android OS that looks pretty much like the Windows Phone interface, and does not even feature the Google Play Store. Instead, it has a Nokia app-store that will have a section for Android apps that run on the Nokia X series of phones. However, all existing Android apps are said to run on it, but they will have to be loaded onto the phone from Nokia's own app-store. Nokia is most-likely working with developers into having them add their apps on the Nokia's app-store for the X series. However, the APKs can still be installed on the phone none-the-less.

Though the phone is not just highly resembling the Nokia Lumia series of phones which feature the Windows Phone OS, but also some parts of it seem like the Nokia Asha series. This is nothing surprising though, because the first leaks of the Android OS on a Nokia phone was on an Asha prototype running the OS.
