Nokia X Unboxing

It wasn't the flagship game changer some had hoped for, but Nokia finally unveiled its long rumored Android smartphone earlier this year. Dubbed the Nokia X, the device is an entry level handset running AOSP capable of side loading Android applications, though it doesn't have direct access to Google Play services. Consider it a last hurrah, along with the Nokia X+ and Nokia XL, before the Microsoft-Nokia merger closes this week.

The Nokia X is a smaller handset that looks like every Lumia smartphone we've seen over the past several months, and it's very clearly meant for emerging markets. With just 512MB of RAM and Qualcomm 8225 Snapdragon processor, the Nokia X isn't meant to be a trailblazer when it comes to speed, and it definitely shows. The device isn't just slow where specs are concerned, either; the Nokia X doesn't support 4G networks, so you're stuck with slower data connections. Check it out and let us know what you think.
