Who else is very excited to get there hands on these phones.
Hey these phones don't have access to play store right?
I hope since it's an Android based operating system, there will be a way to root/install playstore/maybe even an option to install stock android soon
no..but you can side load apps
I am intersted to get a basic one for mom
The specs are not great by any means for a ~8K phone. But still, it will sell like hotcakes and most of the buyers will be the type of people who will go gaga over "Android on Nokia" without judging/comparing with other similar priced phones. Then again, This is India where crap galaxy stars sell more than Moto G so no surprise.
Lumia 520 is still a much
better VFM smartphone than these. Sadly the wait for a VFM sub 10k android (Like Moto G below 20k) continues
I think Nokia X was to be priced at 6.5k ....and other then Nokia 520 which have the same hardware as Nokia X there is just no compitition.
The Nokia X will cost 89 EUR, the X+ 99 EUR and the XL 109 EUR (9500 INR). That should be the retail price here at launch.
Nokia X, X+, XL Hands On. Hope they are aptly priced in India
Verge reported that Nokia X lagged very much. Don't know if it's true or not, but it wouldn't be surprising if it turns out as reported.
Some people believe that Android + Nokia = Car + nitro, lol. Even though Nokia has worked hard, but I really suspect that if Google software prowess couldn't solve Android's root problem to overcome hardware specification madness, anyone else could.
Nokia is going for the play store here, avoiding Google's play store. Just like Amazon's app store, i guess.
No disrespect but X's hardware is nothing in front of 520. Nokia X has the config thats similar to galaxy crap and low end sony phones. The real thing here is to see how Nokia has optimized the forked os.
that nokia X is going to sell for 6500 RS ...
it will sell great since this phone will go to 5000 rs range in 3-4 months time
Secondly comparing galaxy star with Motorola Moto G galaxy star is 6500 Rs and moto G is 12500 almost double.. do you even realize how budget strict people are those in under 10k range ? people don't buy a better phone if it is 5-600 Rs expensive than their budget.. ofcourse galaxy Star would sell more than moto G.. most of them are first time smartphone buyers (teens,Kids) and those who are moving from basic phones to feature phones like ASHA series.. and a simple statistic that the no of buyers under 8k are way way way more than those buying under 15k range it will rock all the Sales
Secondly Regarding Nokia XL at 9000 RS why will it sell ? Because it has a 5 inch screen ( for the very First time under 10,000 range ) No other branded OEM offers more than 4 inch under 10k.. 5 inch screen phone starts from 14-15000 Rs
This will revolutionize Phablet phones under 10,000 . Lumia 520 became a major success because it was the first Phone to have 4 inch screen under 10,000 while other OEM were giving 3.2-3.5 inch screen...
Secondly regarding the potential of this DEvice it is huge.......
These phones will have so huge Developer support from XDA .. i can bet on this that these will be the most heavily supported devices apart from flagship and nexus phones
that means you can do virtually anything on this phone
install google play,CM 11 , other Roms tweaks , Multiple OS like Firefox etc and what not.. this will be the most developer friendly device because its cheap and will sell hugeeeeeeeeeee because its a nokia.....
It will be optimized at hell and might give a user experience better than galaxy Series because of the optimization..
and needless to say 512 mb ram is more than enough For smooth Operation in android 4.4 kitkat..
Nobody Does better in Low end than Nokia.. if it wasn't for that MR.Flop samsung wouldn't be in the picture.. but well that's another story now.. Just wait for Normandy sales number and see for yourself this will sell more than lumia 520 ( nokia X and XL )
Things i like about nokia
1.Build and Design
Looking over your shoulder girl,
Thinking you should have let me have it all.
If you're coming around again
Tell me how you'd feel cause I need to know
I could be your love again
If you just let me in.
We don't have to work it out
Cause I already know
Walking in my silver blues,
Tracked the dust to you.
I believed something too.
One more life with you
wow rish you are soo optimistic about Nokia...hope what u say comes true
hehe maybe i may have over exaggerated a little bit about developer support ( it skipped my mind that this wasn't going to be released worldwide ) but i think this phone can at least match and exceed the success that original galaxy Y had ofcourse if they don't sell
X for more than 6500 and xl for 9000..
