Nokia’s first Android phone : Normandy

Nokia has been reportedly working on an Android phone. According to The Verge, Nokia has been working on a Forked version for sometime now. In November, @evleaks posted the above image of red Nokia phone.

Forked version is similar to what Amazon provides on its tablets. Forked versions do not have access to Google Play services. They have Android just as the base.

According to The Verge, Normandy is designed as an Asha equivalent to push low-cost devices with access to more traditional smartphone apps — something the company has struggled to achieve for its Series 40-powered Asha line.

But we are not sure if Nokia will actually launch this Android phone. If Nokia launches, will it be done before Microsoft-Nokia deal is finalised, is a question that will come to everyone’s mind.
