Nokia X Hands-On (VIDEO)

So hell froze over, and Nokia - by extension Microsoft - just announced an Android phone.

Designed specifically for growth (IE developing) markets, the X is a 4-inch smartphone with a totally unique OS based on Android, and capable of running Android apps, but otherwise totally absent of any Google services.

So what's it actually like? And is there any chance you could be tempted to drop €89 in order to get your hands on one?
