can 701 run android apps?

i've heard about a software called Alien dalvik, that emulates android apps so that they can be run on other devices.

Can the nokia belle 701 do this as well? 

Thanks.

 

BTW - does anyone know when the FB1 will be available for Nokia 701 bought in Israel from Eurocom, the company that represents Nokia in Israel? (meaning it isnt bought from carrier so there is no attachment to carriers ) Or even when globally?

Hello @unger123,

 

The Nokia 701 to run android apps, it's not possible, not even with some special app.

On the other hand there for sure are many apps developed to different OSs like

Symbian, WIndows Phone, iOS and android.

 

For the future updates all we can do is wait and see.

Hi Unger, about your question on FP1 updates, looking at the pattern it might take 1-2 months for network-custom firmwares to be available. Cheers

Nokia 701 runs Symbian, so it is imposible to instal Android apps. Unfortunately Nokia 701 doesn't release in my country.

CPU is not anything. Even if a feature phone clocked at 2 GHz, it still won't works well if the software is not optimized or the lack of GPU. As an example, the Nokia 500 seems to hang a lot. This is because it has the very basic GPU. Compared to the Nokia 603, the 603 runs much faster and smoother than the 500.

GPU matters the most for gaming and hardware accelaration.
If I have helped you in any way, give me a kudos! :smileyhappy:
