Nokia X rooted and can use Google Apps, Google Play Store and Google Now
The recently announced Nokia X range of smartphones offers users a unique mix of Nokia and windows Phone apps with the ability to run Android apps. When it first came out, Microsoft set it so that while you could sideload an Android app, all the official apps would be accessible via the Nokia Store. This meant that you couldn't access the Google Play store or use certain Google services like Google Now. The resourceful folks at XDA Developers have got around this by rooting the device, even offering a guide on how to do it. While Nokia have not condemned this, it could void your warranty, so be careful what you do when the Nokia X and Nokia XL make their arrival in Malaysia on 5 March 2014.
