Good news for Nokia followers!
The Finnish handset maker might launch its first Android phone, codenamed Normandy, in 2014.
The company is working on a fully-tailored or forked version of Android, like the software on the online retail giant’s Kindle Fire tablet range, if reports are to be believed.
The rumoured Nokia Normandy smartphone is said to be targeted at the low-cost segment as an Asha-equivalent smartphone, Unfortunately, there is no word on the innards of the alleged Nokia Normandy.
Contradicting the rumours about a Nokia Android phone, Stephen Elop, the former CEO of Nokia had said in July that the company made the right decision by choosing Windows Phone over Android. As of now, there is no clarity whether the alleged Nokia Normandy Android phone is true or just a rumour.
It would be interesting to see if Nokia can release its rumoured Android phone ahead of the completion of the Microsoft deal.
Microsoft has already agreed to a 10-year license arrangement with Nokia to use the Nokia brand on current and subsequently developed mobile phones based on the Series 30 and Serie4operating systems.
