    So the big headline late last night was that the new Nokia X, a low-end smartphone running Android 4.1 was rooted. Thats geek talk for getting access to the bootloader so that you can load other things on to the phone, after all, all smartphones are just mini-computers.
    Immediately sites jumped on it as proof that Nokias strategy would never work, because you know, you can now flash the Google Play store and even an updated version of the Android onto the darn thing.

    Full story from the WPCentral blog...

    Why would someone root a low end phone to install a larger, bloated, laggy OS? Takes all kinds to make a world I guess.

    Probably so they can get access to all the android apps out there. It is incredibly stupid and purposefully nave to dismiss the ramifications of this. Equally nave is to believe this is too hard or cumbersome to do in emerging nations. Nokia was so stupid to do this and now we see why.
