Report: Two more Android models coming from Nokia, including high-end model

Let's face it, if the Android powered Nokia X is introduced at MWC as expected, it is far from being a high-end model. The rumored specs include a 4 inch, 480 x 800 resolution screen, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage. For those seeking a bit more, there is a published report on Friday that states that Nokia is working on a pair of Android powered phones...

Why would I be unsettled.. I'm not going to buy one, so what's your point?.. Its just a weird situation between MS, and Nokia, and I don't have enough solid information about what their plans are.. I'm really not very interested in speculating, so that's why I say we're just gonna have to wait and see..... It's whatever really.. Good if they do, good if they don't, for obvious reasons... Either way it's Microkia's money not mine in the end.........

Yes it will be interesting how this plays out when Microsoft closes on the Nokia deal. How much support if any will Microsoft put to their competion. We make Windows Devices & support Android_ My favorite word REALLY!!!!!

It is very interesting... I just don't know what's going on, and by now we usually have some idea... But, we'll find out what the plan for these devices are soon enough..

I remember you said the same exact thing when the first rumors about Nokia X came out. I do understand your anxiety though. An Android based high end nokia will cannibalize their whole Lumia line.

People said the same thing about amazon and kindle's, but they seem to be doing rather well. We can always sideload amazon appstore, if we want.

Shows how much I pay attention. Used to be more difficult to add the play store. Good info though.

Root, flash GAPPS, et voila! That is, if you can get root. I'm sure it will be locked down tighter than a drum, but even if the boot loader is locked, you can still get root, at which point Play access is a minor thing.

A high end nokia might sound good but we can't expect them to instantly have an amazing app portfolio so sideloads would be necessary

Without access to play store? Not exactly android that I want. I'll pass. No thanks.

you do know how easy it is to get playstore access without it right ?

I do know. But I'm pretty sure it'll void your warranty.

So you want the openness of android which is what android is all about, but then you want it tied down to a single store like apple and MS. You droid nuts are just that nuts...

Wtf are you talking about? If the rumours are true then this X is only tied to one app store either, the nokia's one that is. Though I guess your phone is pretty great huh? To be able to enter multiple platform stores. LOL.

Who said anything about being tied to one store? All I'm seeing is people wanting the best store.

Have you had an Nokia 808 PureView? It's ND Filter is amazing! Definitely not a gimmick feature like most Samsung phones.
