Android-powered Nokia Normandy leaks in the flesh again

Another picture of the alleged Nokia Normandy has leaked out, and this time the handset is shown in the flesh. This phone has created a firestorm of interest and speculation so far, which would only be understandable if it was a Galaxy S5 or an iPhone 6

Not even close - if Nokia goes through with it at all, it will likely be just an Asha 1045 phone, announced around March 25, according to the latest rumors, but with one very important difference - it has been conceived with forked Android instead of the usual Asha line interface. That feat alone warrants the mountains of interest expressed towards the handset, since we all have opinions how the mobile phone landscape would be right now, if Nokia had gone Android.

You know, "Normandy" does work perfectly for an Android phone, as it would serve as Nokia's "beachhead" in their invasion of the Android marketshare.

except that their android UI looks ugly and it will be years before Nokia will make a sizeable contribution to Android (if Microsoft permits them i.e.).

Not to mention its a low/mid-range (at best) looking at specs. Nokia would need it to price competitively to make it stand out against Moto G (GOOGLE's, Moto G)

1. Do you slightest of idea what you are talking about ?

2. Like Topcat said Nokia = Bankrupt. So, Nokia is living its worst day !

3. Come with actual points rather than stupid abstract points like benz and ford.

4. The most important point - The specs and UI is unsurprising - to make any dent in android world

I'm American, however, I will second that.

Nokia has always (ALWAYS) been better than Moto, in every aspect. I never had a bad Nokia, yet I had two pieces of horrible trash from old Moto over the years.

Now that Google is in charge, there's finally some quality control at Moto, or so it seems.

Until Microsoft fully ruins the party, I'll enjoy my last Nokia (unless the Normandy comes, that is).

i think nokia ruined itself. after n95 8gb they never made any highend phone. sammy learned from it and did something that nokia was supposed to do. sammy made innov8. nokia became arrogant because of their market share. and thought everybody would buy any craaaap they made. (despite making best phones by quality measures) and thats the story of nokias fall. finally chairmen decided to put the last nails on nokias coffin by giving thumbs up to microsofts purchase. the end

I dont' think either of those phones in the pic is the Normandy. The one on the bottom has a flash and black side buttons, whereas the Normandy has no flash and has colored side buttons. It looks more like a Lumia 720. The phone on top with the lonely back button has curved glass, while the Normandy doesn't. It looks like the Asha 503.

Nokia's equivalent of the LG G2 would've been Marvelous.

What i don't understand is, if it doesn't support google play services, does that mean its application format won't be .apk?

You do all realise that asha phones are mid range to low end phones. You want 41mp android from NOKIA? Forget it, if they use android its to replace the asha phones who since the windows phone haven't had a flagship phone. Only the experimental 808 and nothing more.

If Nokia would release a top notch phone for android, and advertise the phone right (because everyone knows and loves nokia since the early 2000s) The phone would probably sell much better than the Windows Lumias and Nokia would then switch to Android forever!

Microsoft is a Devices and Services Company now. a Great new device for them to sell would be a Open source ASHA smart phone that can load and flawlessly Run every android App that is on the market place. If the "Normandy's" OS cannot do this I think it's worth less to Microsoft because I do not think many developers will flock to the Normandy open source OS if it cannot run their current Android open source apps. a modified Normandy OS that can
flawlessly Run Android Apps would be an Asset to Microsoft because they would make tons of money off Android through there OWM Microsoft controlled Open source smart phone OS.
go for it Microsoft!
