Nokia X already hacked to run Google services and apps In less than a week since launch, Nokia's Android-based X smartphone has already been hacked to run Google's apps and services.
Gaining root access, xda-developers member Kashamalaga then added Google apps (like Gmail, Google Now, Maps, Hangouts, and more) in less than five steps.

The Nokia X, despite running on Android, was built with Microsoft in mind. For example, the device has Outlook, OneDrive, Skype and other Nokia/Microsoft services pre-installed including Nokia's own curated Android app store.

It appears Nokia has anticipated the device getting developer love, tweeting that they are excited at the developments.
