Nokia plans to release this month a smartphone that runs a version of Google's Android mobile software, according to people familiar with the matter, as it concludes the sale of its handset business to Microsoft.
It's all but confirmed now that the Nokia X Android phone will actually be released. Number one question: will this be Nokia's next N9 (dead on arrival, released because it's done anyway), or will it be a true attempt by Nokia - and thus Microsoft - to establish a lasting replacement for Asha?
Second question: how successful can a Play Services-less Android phone really be?
