BANGALORE: Nokia X, the first ever Android phone from Finnish manufacturer has already been launched in India. It is available with the price tag of 8,599. Even if Nokia X is built on Android OS, it varies from other devices that run on Google’s operating system. Listed below are the six ways wherein Nokia X stands out the crowd, as reported by The Indian Express.



Android sans Google



Nokia X comes with an operating system that is built on Android Open Source Project (AOSP). As AOSP lack proprietary Google code, applications such as Google Play Store and Google Maps will not be available on Nokia X. Google were adding several aspects to Google Play Services over years, which were not available under AOSP. If an app uses any of these features, Nokia X cannot operate it.
