If Android developers can port the apps to the Nokia sore, with almost no modification, I don't see a big deal the lack of Google Play on the Xs phones.

I also was wondering how many people in the emerging markets will know that his/her new phone is running Android or something else. Do they even care?

Re: Nokia X series
I don't think there is any "might" to it.  They'll avoid it like the plaque.  Nokia X will be outside the walled garden and people buy devices today more for the apps then they do the hardware. What's the biggest beef (well one of many I suppose) about Windows phones – lack of software choices like those available in the walled gardens of Apple and Android.

Nokia X series
The fact that Nokia X Series will not feature the App store giant, Google Play Store, might be a huge deterrent to many.

Also the post mentions, compatibility of the android applications on the mobile is in question.

Still one can say that there many adventurists who would like to try the "Windroid".
