Nokia has decided to use Android platform on this new entry-level Handset which they have decided to call the Nokia X2. It was expected that Microsoft would abandon the venture once it assumed control of Nokia, however they decided to use Android to as a way to deliver the apps that people want, but the handset will feature Microsoft services instead of Google’s.
The handset will feature it’s very own app store instead of Google Play, it will use Outlook for emails, OneDrive for cloud storage, Bing search, and comes with Skype preloaded. The homescreen also emulates the Windows Phone user interface with even more tiles and apps to open.
