Nokia reportedly sends Nokia Normandy to Indian Developers

17 Feb , 2014  


A few things about Nokia Normandy has already been leaked. Nokia is working on an Android lowend smartphone. BGR India is claiming that Nokia has started sending Nokia Normandy, aka Nokia X to Indian developers.

It has also said that Nokia is planning for campaigning this device during Indian Premier League, one of the most exciting series of India, which will be played in April. Looking at this thing makes me feel that Nokia has a huge plan for Nokia Normandy.

The site has also said the Nokia is working on its own App Store AoL (Asha on Linux). Which has already got the top 100 Android apps.

Price is expected to be $100 which is in fact best buy for the specs. Nokia Normandy will run Android 4.4 Kitkat and sports 1GHz dual core processor. It has internal storage of 4GB and 512MB of RAM.

Nokia Normandy or Nokia X is expected to be announced in Mobile World Congress.

It is going to be interesting to see the future of the phone. What will MS do? Kill it? Feel free to say your thoughts in comments or @NokiaTips.
