Nokia X series phones are seen as desperate measures by Nokia to save the brand. After 10 years of dominance in the Indian Market, Nokia lost its appeal as a leading mobile brand. Nokia was thrown out of the equation by the arrival of Android. Nokia tried to compete with its Windows phone but couldn’t attract as many customers. As a desperate measure Nokia decided to run Android on its phone even after Microsoft bought Nokia. Microsoft and Google’s rivalry is world know. Nokia X is seen as an attempt by
Nokia to regain its degrading status. Will this phone emerge as Nokia’s savior or will be just another fallen warrior? Only time can answer this question.
