Is Nokia too late to the party?
So Nokia just launched three Android phones. Though they aren't Google certified, they can run a majority of Android apps, including launchers. One journalist asked if the bootloader was locked but was ignored, which almost certainly means it is.
But is Nokia too late? BlackBerry delayed launching its messaging service to other platforms until it was no longer relevant, and by the time it did, it had already become a ghost town, with apps like Wattsapp and Facebook messenger taking the bigger pieces of the user base pie.
If Nokia had launched an Android phone two years ago, maybe things would have been different today. But now it seems like one desperate attempt to gauge the market for the last piece of consumer faith in the Nokia brand.
Are you interested in any of the Nokia X phones?
