BARCELONA, Spain - Nokia is targeting emerging markets with a low-cost smartphone that uses Google's Android operating system rather than the Windows Phone software from Microsoft, the company about to buy Nokia's phone business.
Nokia will ditch many of the Google services that come with Android, which Google lets phone makers customize at will. Instead, the new Nokia X phone announced Monday will emphasize Microsoft services such as Bing search, Skype communications and OneDrive file storage. Its home screen sports larger, resizable tiles resembling those on Windows phone.
