Nokia Normandy is an Android phone?
When Nokia Normandy was first posted on this website, we had all assumptions it was just another Asha phone.
Right now, a new report says the phone codenamed Nokia Normandy is an Android phone. But before that, remember that on the day we first saw the Nokia Normandy, we got two pictures: One was identified as Normandy while one the one was looking like a fly Samsung Galaxy phone with Nokia logo.
Now, truth to be said, the other ‘unidentified phone’ might be the Nokia Android phone being talked about, not event the Normandy. Reason is because it has a home button like an Android phone while the one identified as Normandy has a normal Asha home key.
So back to the gist, Nokia Normandy is said to be in final stages of production and a 2014 release date has been slated. It is not clear why Nokia is still pursuing their Android dream even though an acquisition by Microsoft is at hand.
A Nokia smartphone running on Android operating system will be a shot in Microsft’s leg, given that the later are pushing their Windows Phone 8 OS agianst Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS, even using desperate measures sometimes.
