The Wall Street Journal confirms in a new report that Nokia is going to release an Android-powered smartphone at the Mobile World Congress later this month.
The phone is allegedly tailored in such a way that it wont promote some essential stuff that is incorporated by Google, basically a forked version of Android. Instead of traditional Google apps like GMail and Maps, it will have here maps and apps from Nokia and Microsoft. This Nokia X / Normandy as it’s codenamed, has been rumored since the longest time possible and ever since then it has been leaked till the actual phone with it’s UI was leaked recently.
Are you excited for this Nokia built Android Phone?!
This is basically what an unnamed Senior Nokia India Executive unveiled, under the condition that his identity should be not unveiled further disclosing that this phone would be available in India from March. For obvious reasons, this phone seems to be built for emerging markets like India.
Are you excited for this Asha running forked-Android!?
There is absolutely not a single day that passes by without a rumor of Nokia’s code named Normandy. The latest leak by TheGioididong.com suggest some interesting specs of the phone, says it would running Android KitKat.
There appeared to be small window while they uploaded the above which taken down shortly after.The phone is expected to feature a 4-inch display with WVGA (800 x 480 pixels) resolution, powered by a lowly 1GHz dual-core CPU (probably a Snapdragon 200 chip). 512MB of RAM and 4GB internal storage, which can be further expanded via a microSD card fill out the flash memory column of the spec sheet.
Back in early 2013 there were rumours of Microsoft encouraging OEMs to push Windows Phone by enabling it to exist alongside another operating system so users can jump back and forth. While back then it was a far fetched dream, there is one very strong contender attempting just that.
The BM 180 is based on WP8, and looks and feels a lot like it, but with an industry focus, rather than being intended for personal use. That means it isn’t ready to be your daily driver as we speak. Also we are sceptical about how quick the switching would be so let’s just hang around till someone figures it out in a better way.
There is almost no day that passes by without a new leak of this Nokia Normandy smartphone which is making headlines for one sole reason because it is expected to be – Nokia’s first Android smartphone.
Very strong rumours say that the UI above is a forked version of Android like the one on the Amazon Kindle Fire line of tablets but that doesn’t convince us enough. Everything else looks the Asha OS just got a facelift. There are a lot of apps out there from Skype to Vine and even BBM and Viber that makes us think again, what really is the Normandy!?
It is expected to launch on February 25th so keep your fingers crossed Android fanboys.
At this point Microsoft has a lot of questions yet unanswered that would decide the Windows Phone fate. We do know that Nokia – Microsoft now being one could mean that there is one big question- Will Microsoft encourage other OEMs to use their OS tp compete against their own manufacturing?
A Source says that Microsoft is in talk with Sony to push WP on their hardware . While at this point it might mean starting from scratch, Microsoft wants this to happen and would like to take the pain to get this sorted as soon as possible.
evleaks on a spree of leaking new Windows Phone tips and now we have a rumour with a photo to back it up. The Lumia 630/635 codenamed “Moneypenny” would bring Dual-SIM support to Windows Phone alongwith alleged On-Screen buttons.
Based on the network indicators, we think both SIMs could be active simultaneously. Nokia has its eyes set on developing markets, and giving those users this sort of flexibility may be key to winning many over.
These wearable components would still be produced under Nokia’s name even after the Mircosoft takeover but since we do not have any official news, it’s wise to not get excited.
Eltar Murtazin has been at the source of a lot of rumours that have been stirring up recently. He claims that Windows Phone 9 will launch sometime in the second half of next year, and that its arrival will signal the end of RT as a separate platform.
Also more interesting is the fact that he suggests that the next version of Windows Phone has something special, that special treatment is no Metro UI.
That makes us think that if these Live Tiles – which are an identity and an Integral part of Windows Phone OS, wont be anymore then what would the functionality be like?
HTC was bought to the court of law by the Finnish Manufacturer, Nokia which said that HTC has infringed it’s “modular structure for a transmitter and a mobile station” patent.
Nokia had achieved a sales ban against the One smartphone line in the UK before, forcing HTC to change the radios and microphones inside the One as quoted by reliable sources.
