How large is the demand for Android phones made by Nokia? Well, if China is any indication, it's pretty big: Nokia announced today that it has had 1 million pre-orders in China alone. The more of these things sell, the larger a pickle it'll put Microsoft in.

So yeah, I hope Nokia sells lots of them.

It's actually fake

There is much doubt in the air. Other sites report the numbers are a cheat because there's one Chinese retailer who held a competition where by "pre-ordering" the phone one could participate into a raffle and win a Nokia X for free... And multiple pre-orders per person was allowed...

Can't be any more fake than "200 million sold..." coming out of Microsoft when they aren't sold - but shipped.
