The Nokia X is reportedly in production at Nokia's Hungary factory


Reports from Hungary claim that the Nokia X has successfully passed testing and is now in production at Nokia's factory in the city of Komárom. The source "confirmed" that the Android phone in Windows-clothing won't feature Google's Play Services and Play Store, which we have no reason to doubt. Of course, the option of side-loading is there for everyone, unless Nokia and Microsoft go the extra mile at securing their fork of Android.



The source wasn't 100% sure about the launch date of the Nokia X, but all the evidence so far has pointed to a reveal at MWC 2014 in Barcelona, Spain (Feb 24-27). We will be there, as usual, so stay tuned for our coverage. If the first Nokia Android phone is really there, there's no way we're missing it.

Forgive my ignorance but how much of Android is in this thing exactly? How can you call it Android if you can't even access the Play Store?

Exactly... If it doesnt have google apps, then y call it the android powered nokia... Even though MS hasn't completed their purchase, it is highly unlikely... It is best to call it a linux based nokia normandy...

The second best alternative would probably be to download the Amazon app store and get apps that way. Without Google services though, this phone will be missing a lot.

i use none of google sevice, but only the apps from third party, that i will be able to side load easily and they are very few in nos and easily available, what i needed is a cheap, durable, device that i can believe to be robust enough, and i rate Nokia above any android phone maker in that dept so its gud for me as a secondary phone, other people may also think as a back up phone or they can have it if they do not need very high end specs but i am pretty sure at price tag of $110 at launch it is going to be a hot cash for Nokia

hmm folks I am sure Microsoft who will own most of Nokia smart phone and feature phone assets by the end of march 2014 is aware of all of this and will support the "Normandy" smart phone because rumor has it that the MS Redmond headquarters are talking about having Windows smart phones run Android apps. that rumor makes perfect sense now because the Windows smart phone MS Redmond is talking about running Google's android apps is it's soon to OWN Noika "Normandy smart phone Microsoft wont put Android apps on a Windows 8.1 smart phone but the Normandy smart phone is running the freely available open source version of the Android operating system that Amazon and others are already using and they do run Googles android apps ether. Go Microsoft Go. MS really will be a true for real Devices and Services Corporation wow MS will be selling their OWN OS stuff plus open source OS products. Go Microsoft Go. This 2014 tech year is really going to be interesting.
