Nokia is building an Android phone, codenamed Normandy. We posted a screenshot of Nokia ‘s custom Android UI last week.
@evleaks has shared some more screenshots of Nokia’ s Android UI.
As you can see in leaked screenshot, Nokia is trying to build a custom UI resembling the look of its Asha OS and elements from Windows Phone.
It’s still unclear whether Nokia will ever release Android phones following its acquisition by Microsoft.
People seem to be excited about a long awaiting wishes of seeing a Nokia Android device. But as it is being said, Nokia is going to use this Android fork only for its low end devices, possibly by replacing Asha OS with this.
Let us know how excited are you to see an Android device from Nokia? What do you expect from it? Feel free to put your thoughts in comments or connect with us @NokiaTips.
Nokia India just announced on their facebook page that Nokia Lumia 1020 PureView is available for pre-order! Pre-order starts at Rs. 49,999 (808USD approx)!
No doubt, Nokia Lumia 1020 an awesome device, but Rs 49,999 is too much for a device. If this is the final price after launch, I doubt they will be able to do sufficient sale.
Nokia Lumia 1020 is first WP8 device with 41 MP PureView camera and Xenon flash and it best known for it’s zoom capabilities, #ZoomReinvented. It sports 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4 Dual Core processor and 4.5″ screen.
