The Nokia X series made a shocking entry into the mobile market last year surprising many and also confusing people too..

The X series was for emerging markets and has seemed to stay that way and not much traction has been made of the device been made further available across the globe however anyone that has them here has imported them or picked one up from holiday for example,we imported our Nokia X last year as Ireland is also out of bounds for the X series.

Earlier in the year Microsoft also said the X series would be shelved yet another model the X2 was announced so the shelf life is not looking too good.The X series was designed to entice users moving from dumbphones to smartphones and to get a flavour of the Windows ecosystem whilst the phone was running with AOSP. Effectively the X range was a stepping stone to windows phone in their eyes anyway.

Albeit the Nokia X range is nice i cant see how that people would buy a phone with android thats skinned which offered no play store access out of box,today if people want an Android they buy a full Android not skinned,similar to amazons fire phone i just don’t see the point of offering this platform to build something on its a really niche market and a dwindling one at that.

 

Onto the details from expansys,a hefty price compared to what is available now and in competition but this device will tickle some peoples fancy.

Priced as is for me its too high,considered this version will not get the newer X2s update either this has annoyed many people that have invested in the previous models.

It would be a great back up device though and if you fancy something different and want to try new things the smartphone market is a strange place and as they say don’t knock something until you try it.
