Nokia X rings up 1 million pre-orders in China after just four days

Nokia X rings up 1 million pre-orders in China after just four days
After just four days of pre-orders in China, the Android powered Nokia X has rung-up more than 1 million in pre-orders. Many smartphone buyers have been waiting for a Nokia built, Android powered phone, even if a forked version of the Android OS is employed. While that means no Google services and applications, there is a Nokia or Microsoft solution for just about every Google application that the Nokia X will not have. For example, the Nokia X will feature the Nokia Store, HERE Maps and those purchasing the handset will get 10GB of cloud storage free from Microsoft's OneDrive.

The Nokia X offers a 4 inch LCD display with resolution of 480 x 800 which combines for a 233ppi pixel density. A dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon S4 is under the hood, and 512MB of RAM is on board. 4GB of native storage is included, but Nokia has thoughtfully provided a microSD slot for those who need added storage. The 3MP snapper on back does not come with AutoFocus or a flash, and there is no front-facing snapper on the device. A 1500mAh battery keeps the lights on.

Nokia has to be happy with the report as it certainly seems to justify the decision to go ahead with an Android flavored phone. The large number of pre-orders in China for the Nokia X does make one wonder if Nokia would have been better off had it decided to use Android instead of Windows Phone for its Lumia handsets.


Thanks for the tip!
