Nokia X Hacked To Run Google Apps
Washington: Nokia X has been reportedly hacked to run Google apps and additional launchers.
The hacking was reported a few days after the launch of the smartphone.
According to the Verge, xda-developers member Kashamalaga managed to convert his Nokia X to run theGoogle Play Store and Google apps in five simple steps, suggesting Nokia hasn't locked down the device too heavily.
Meanwhile, Stephen Elop, Nokia's head of devices, said that the X plan was deliberated to halt the usage of Google apps and replace it with Microsoft equivalents.
Apparently, Nokia has even built its own Android app store to avoid using Google's Play version.
