Recently Microsoft unveiled a low cost smartphone "Nokia X2", targeting Emerging market Countries like India, China, Russia and Nigeria.
Nokia X2 is provided with a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, a 5MP camera, a big screen (4.3-inch display), dual-sim, and 15GB of inbuilt storage space.
It is coming in various colours like green, orange, black, yellow and grey.
Nokia X2 will compete with dual-SIM models like Moto G, HTC Desire and Samsung Duos.
And, interestingly Nokia X2 is powered by Android OS. Everyone was surprised as Microsoft opted Android OS instead of its own Windowsphone OS.
Although the Nokia X2 is running Android, the OS has been heavily modified to look more like a Windows Phone interface.
Anyway, it is big surprise to see Microsoft preferring Android instead of its own OS.
This Reddit discussion is giving some insights about Why Microsoft is using Android OS in its Nokia X2 phone
Mostly they are highlighting two things in the disucssion. One is, Nokia might have developed this phone with Android before the Microsoft acquisition. Second is, Microsoft is trying to attract the Android fans, and it may force them to WP in future.
