Nokia to launch Google Android phone

Nokia AndroidNokia will launch its latest handset using Google’s Android operating system, after rejecting the platform for Microsoft Windows only three years ago, as it seeks to compete on an equal footing for customers in emerging markets.

The £80 Nokia X will be the first of a range Android-based smartphones soon to be acquired by Microsoft, in an acknowledgment of the strength of Google’s platform to produce cheaper smartphones.

However, Microsoft services such as Onedrive, Bing, Skype and Outlook will be put at the heart of Nokia’s next range of handsets as the US group uses its future devices platform to fight with Google for the “next billion” of mobile phone customers.

Nokia criticised the Android phone market as being too crowded only three years ago, instead gambling on an exclusive relationship with Microsoft and its Windows phone system.
