Nokia X rooted, filmed with stock Android and Google Apps

Nokia X rooted, filmed with stock Android and Google AppsThe Nokia X was unveiled just five days ago at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, but the tinkerers have been busy tinkering, with interesting results. Arguably pointless results, perhaps, but interesting nonetheless.

Kashamalaga has ultimately rooted a developer version of the Nokia X, and filmed it running stock Android, complete with Gapps – or “Google Apps” if you prefer.

The logic behind the Nokia X remains a mystery to some, with the handset running a heavily forked version of Android, and built by Nokia, which is of course owned by Microsoft. Well, sort of. It’s all very confusing.

Throw in a lack of direct access to Google Play alongside a handful of decidedly modest specs, and you’re onto a stinker.

Heck, even with the Nokia X rooted, we’d still recommend forking out a few extra quid for a Moto G. Or, over in Windows Phone world, there’s the Nokia Lumia 525.

In particular, Nokia X specs include a 4in display (480 x 800), dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage, and a 3MP rear camera.

Meanwhile, for around £100, the Moto G offers a 4.5in 720p display, quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB internal storage, and a 5MP rear camera.

In any case, feel free to head over to YouTube, where you can watch 'Nokia X meets Android Now launcher'.

Players keep playing, right?
People still buy the HTC HD2 just to tweak it... For the money they could buy much better Android devices... People tick in mysterious ways.

Meanwhile, on the Nokia X announcement pos my comment;

I can't see the point of this.

For that money, you could get a Moto G, or a Lumia 525 or something. Why make an android phone that's trying to be a windows phone?


What i put forward is this;

AM I LEWIS?

:p
