This means that these devices are not pure Android phones but insted run a forked variant of Android. These phone can run the Android apps, which will be curated by Nokia, and are powered by Microsoft and Nokia services. The main drawback of Nokia X smartphones is that the users will not have access to the Google Play Store for downloading the apps.
