Nokia Succumbs to Android Appeal in Low-cost Phone Battle

Comments Off on Nokia Succumbs to Android Appeal in Low-cost Phone Battle 16

Nokia, soon to be acquired by Microsoft Corp, is turning to software created by arch-rival Google for a new line of phones it hopes will make it a late contender in the dynamic low-cost smartphone market.

Its first models, Nokia X, X+ and XL, rely upon an open version of the Android mobile software system created by Google that has become the world’s most popular software used in smartphones.

The release of the phones just days before Nokia sells its handset business to Microsoft in a $7.2 billion deal, is an attempt to stay relevant in emerging markets, where low-cost Android phones are being snapped up by hundreds of millions of buyers.
