Android-based Nokia X Attracting Attention from Chinese Consumers before Official Launch

17 Mar

Nokia’s experiment with the Android platform may have worked out a little better than expected.
In just four days after announcing the Android-powered Nokia X at the Mobile World Congress, the Finnish smartphone maker claimed that it has managed to attract massive attention from the Chinese regions, and confirmed in a recent Weibo post that the pre-order numbers for its first ever Android phone has reached the 1 Million mark.

The smartphone will officially become available on March 25, 2014, and so there will still be ample time for the numbers of pre-orders to grow.

At 599 RMB, Nokia X will feature a 4 inch WVGA display, dual core 1 Ghz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB storage, dual SIM functionality, and an “open source” version of Android that is based off of Android 4.1.2.
