Nokia X gets 1 million pre-orders in China

The tech world’s reaction to the Nokia X in the tech world was mostly negative. A very low-end Nokia device running an old version of Android isn’t exactly appealing to those who love high-end hardware, but the expectations made it so much worse. We wanted a bleeding edge Nokia phone running Android for a long time, so this ¬†budget device just added insult to injury. But our opinions are rarely shared by the general public.

While we don’t know how most US consumers have reacted to Nokia X (we’re not even sure most know that it exists), it looks like China is fairly excited for it. Nokia has announced that in China alone, the X has gotten 1 million pre-orders. That’s an impressive number and a surprising win for Nokia.

While none of us really want the Nokia X because of its low-end hardware and forked, Play Store-less version of Android, it’s still a decent device for emerging markets with a low price tag. We really shouldn’t hate on it, but it’s hard dealing with a broken heart. We really thought we were going to get our Android-powered Lumia game on.
