Nokia is my first love for mobiles and Android is my current favorite operating system. While Nokia is slowly moving away from Symbian, more Nokias are coming on Windows Mobile OS. The recent interesting development is an Android based Nokia. Well, not very recent but the news isn’t that old. Why I’m writing this post here? I’ve finally got a chance to play around with a Nokia running it’s modified version of Android OS. The new platform is called Nokia X and the phone I have in my hand right now is called Nokia XL. It’s not the first phone on Nokia X platform but my first Android Nokia.
It’s been only a few hours I’ve got it so can’t say much about it but this place is about to get filled with a lot of Nokia XL stuff, so stay tuned.
Here are a few photos form my pre-unboxing post 🙂
I always wanted Nokia phones to run Android OS. Here comes the day when the dream comes true. Now begins an era of Nokia’s hardware strength and Android’s OS marvel to work together and the phones will soon be in the hands of end users (yes you).
While Nokia is trying to keep themselves as far as possible from Google services for obvious reasons, this does not mean the users, developers and even phone sellers have anything to loose here. This is an amazing development where Nokia is trying to help drive more and more users to Microsoft services including Skype and Sky Drive (recently renamed to OneDrive) using Google’s Android OS.
So if you are a grumpy Nokia users and a loyal customer, grab a Nokia X phone in near future and I’m sure you’ll have way better set of software apps available on Nokia X than your old Symbian or Nokia OS phone. Win-win for the Nokia user, whether you pick a Windows Phone or Nokia X (Android) phone.
For developers, it creates a whole new market too. Time port your apps to Nokia X fellows, just visit this site to get started.
