    Abe, will you stop with the ‘MWC2014: Barcelona, Spain — ‘ thing. You are not a newswire website nor are you issuing a press release. Pang pr lang ang location at date line.

      Contrary to your assertion, the place-date line is, by no means, “confined” to any one type of online article.

      Plus, andun si Abe, and this is his blog. Anong pake mo kung ilagay niya un? Edi wag ka magbasa. Such a smartass LOL

    Specs for the 2 (X+ and XL) please?

    Nokia X running 4.1.2 is so bad with the 512 mb memory

  3. Dapat kasi nag lagay sila ng playstore.

    • dags says:

      Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia’s devices division prompted Nokia to preload its first Android smartphone with Microsoft’s services instead of Google’s. Should Nokia decided to put Google’s services into their first Android smartphone, Microsoft will surely hammer Nokia the bad way.

      Since the Nokia X runs Android you can sideload Google’s Play Store just fine (with a little bit of tweaking, of course).

    • Epstein says:

      Bakit kelangan mo pa ng playstore e pwede naman mag-sideload…

    • mj says:

      there will be a Nokia Store that will support and display android apps, third party app stores are welcome, and sideloading is supported. then why the heck you need google play when you can do the three I mentioned??? PLEASE READ SOME ARTICLES, ANG GOOGLE NADYAN LANG PO HA

    A smartphone running Android to promote Microsoft’s services instead of Google’s services? Quite ironic, isn’t it?

    lol, original cherry mobile flare specs, lumang S4 play with cortex-a5, tapos double ang presyo. stupid shit nokia… hahahaha.

    • NokiaX says:

      But the user interface of the Nokia X runs smoothly than your laggy 1GHZ cherry mobile phone. HUWAG KANG MASYADONG MANGLAIT!!!. Tapos contrary to the budget friendly price is Nokia’s good repair service. San ka pa kaysa sa substandard na quality at repair service ng c-h-e-r-r-y m-o-b-i-l-e!!!!!!

  6. NOTE: The affluent attribute being honest with all people as the most important characteristic in their businesses, tied with being well disciplined.

    ) In the eighties using crushed tiger nuts and various pellets soaked in tiger nut
    extract, powdered palatants and enhancers for example was a great edge
    for me. Do you think if Adam and Eve had not sinned, would God use sickness, disease or calamity to teach them.

    consider the fact that colonial mentality is within this country four decades now,hindi nyo matatanggal sa isip ng mga pilipino na ang binibili lang ay ang BRAND NAME……

    • anon says:

      Karamihan naman ng mga so-called “pinoy-made” phones eh rebranded lang mula sa mga generic android phones from china. Nilagyan lang ng mga pinoy services para kunwari gawang pinoy. lol

    to each his own we presume..

    we can all agree that a particular brand or model or specs of X item is better than others, but if that is only but a “mere concept in the end-user’s mind” and not what we actually have in our hand is a totally different telling what we have and what we think is best..

    what we usually have in our hand is pretty much telling of ourselves, all circumstances considered the same..

    Mind is surreal.. Budget is real..
