Nokia says 75 percent of all Android apps should be able to run just fine on the new Nokia X line. So we put that to the test here at Mobile World Congress by (what else?) installing the Android Central App.
Android on Nokia. Gotta love it.
So how'd it go?
As you'd expect, sideloading an app on the Nokia X is exactly like on any other Android phone. You'll need to tick the "Unknown sources" box, then install, and, well, that's it.
The Wifi at Nokia's booth was pretty spotty, but our app fired up just fine, content loaded, and we were in familiar territory once again.
So, yes. Nokia's Android phone runs Android apps just fine, thank you very much.
