Well, that did not take long–Nokia MixRadio pirated to other Android handsets

Nokia has said their MixRadio service is an essential promotional service for their handsets, so it comes as no surprise that their Nokia X handsets supported the app, which is in fact the Windows Phone app with a Xamarin porting layer. The service is expected to come to Microsoft with the handset deal.

What should also come as no surprise is that the app has been ripped out of the Nokia X, and is now available to download from XDA-Developers for any other Android handset.

Given that the service does not need any sign-in, Nokia will be finding it quite difficult to eradicate the piracy problem, and with piracy so widespread on Android I would not be surprised if the number of Nokia MixRadio users on other Android handsets outnumber legitimate users on Windows Phone and the Nokia X soon.

See a video of the app running in the LG G2 after the break.
