While Nokia might be pleased by this, Microsoft cannot be too happy. The plan behind the Nokia X was to allow Microsoft's own applications to replace the Google apps not on the forked Android OS driving the handset. Nokia's head of devices, Stephen Elop, expects the phone to provide a gateway to Microsoft's apps such as Outlook.com, OneDrive, and Skype.
Earlier on Saturday, we told you that an XDA member had ported over the Nokia Store, the replacement for the Google Play Store, to Android models running the 4.1.2 build of the OS, or higher.
You can check out a video and some still shots of the hacked Nokia X, below.
