Nokia X, the first Nokia smartphone to run Android, is all set for a great start in China. The handset has apparently been pre-ordered by 4 million people, multiple sources report. Nokia X will start selling in the nation next week, but this overwhelming response it has been receiving is definitely a good sign.
Last week Nokia X surpassed one million pre-orders, and in just a couple of days, over three more million people have shown interest in the Android-powered handset.
But this may not be the complete story, though. There’s a possibility that many users who have shown interest might not actually buy the device. Since there is no commitment, these numbers might not be the precise estimation of Nokia X’s demand. Only time will tell if these people are actually going to grab Nokia X or not, but for a country as big as China, which is the world’s biggest smartphone market, it seems very unlikely that after all the hype it has received over the last couple of weeks, people will back out at the time of sale.
For a refresher, Nokia X is running a forked version of Android. Unlike the operating system we are familiar with, this forked version of Android doesn’t sport Google Mobile Services such as Gmail, Google PlayStore, etc. Instead with these phones, you get to see more of Microsoft and Nokia’s services.
