Nokia X A110 (Normandy) is priced in Vietnam
Nokia's first Android phone, still unannounced, has appeared on the website of a online retailer in Vietnam. That is actually quite fitting considering that much of this story came out of the country. The appearance of the phone, known as the Nokia X A110, included a price. According to the listing, this handset will cost between 2.2 million to 2.5 million VND which works out to about $110 USD.

The same online retailer had the similarly spec'd Nokia Lumia 525 on the site, priced at 3.39 million VND ($160 USD). The Nokia X A110 has 512MB less RAM and 4GB less native storage than what is on the Nokia Lumia 525.

The specs of the Nokia X A110 show a 4 inch glass with resolution of 480 x 854 for a 285ppi pixel density. A dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon 200 is under the hood, with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage. Those needing more memory can use the 32GB capacity microSD slot that is available on the phone. A 5MP camera graces the back of the device, which will have Android 4.4.2 installed out of the box.

The latest buzz is that the phone will launch in March, which means we could see it at MWC later this month, in Barcelona.

Yeah, it's super cheap. And if software is optimized right, thanks to Kitkat, this might not be that bad. I see succesfull product.

Kindle owners seem to do okay.

On a side note, Nokia HERE trumps Google Maps any day, and I have extensively used both.

Kindles are not phones tho, and I seriously doubt that the map app is a main concern for the average user.

actually it won't matter a bit because Asha phones(similar priced ) are bought by people just to make simple calls ,sms they don't even surf web with asha phones.. and those who actually do and care about apps are smart enough to google it and sideload .apk

XDA will make this Device

Better be 10m Nokia X's sold seeing the insane amount of people waiting for a Android powered Nokia phone.

This is small numbers I predict but I'm sure if Nokia made this Normandy around 50m, will be sold out.

But why get this over the similarly priced/better spec'd Moto G? If you want a cheap Android phone that is.

Moto G = no removable battery, no upgradable memory, cheap build quality

i wanna see how smooth that phone would be with that specific 512 MB Ram..i see Nokia is experimenting many things with this sweet demon!

Reasonable enough for those specs. Google did say KitKat runs smoothly on 512MB of RAM

It's running JB 4.1, not Kikkat.

The article and the image clearly states Android 4.4.2. And the last time I checked its still called KitKat..

I'm really curious about the purpose of this phone. Is it supposed to just replace the Asha line, or does it represent the beginning of Nokia being independent from MS after the acquisition and going full Android?

Exactly, how much Android of Android is in this thing?

Both of them are possible, but I think it's the new CEO who lets Nokia to make Android phones even if Nokia is acquired by Microsoft just to try whether Android is suitable for Microsoft or not, maybe we can say that Nokia is the tester?

According to the a news recently, it mentioned that Nokia will make more Android phones after the Nokia X which is good news.

All fingers crossed for high-end Nokia X...

I think they are making only low end android....there is no way ms could allow...plus all hardware tweaks of nokia are with ms....

Also consider that that android version is forked and it is same as of asha ui.....that makes sense that they are replacing asha software with android

I am more exited about Nokia WP than Normandy/X ...
Also,i think it's M$ behind all this Normandy/X thing.Once they get people to use WP UI with M$ features on it,they will choose to upgrade a full WP experience.That somewhat makes sense.
Well...

As if the Lumia 520/525 wasn't enough, Samsung will have to deal with this as well. Hope they're ready with a few decent low end phones.

Samsung doesn't know how to make a descent low-end device. The Ace and Centurion are junk, as are the many clones and incarnations out of their camp.

The S4 Active is nice, as are all the Note series devices.

They can definitely make nice high-line handsets, but that's where it ends.

From a former S3 user that dropped more than 30% of it's calls...

If it can get Play store services & delivers a good enough performance, then this is going to be a sure shot hit in Asian markets like India...
Come to papa Nokia X

$110?!? Bwahahaha!!! How will this compete at that price? Aside from the Nokia faithful (I used to be one, but after the Elopocalypse and the "burning platform" effect, there wasn't any point in it any more), who will buy this over a more fully-spec'd Android handset from a Chinese or Indian manufacturer? I said before that if it were priced at $100 or under that I wouldn't laugh, but $110 is just barely high enough to be in my laughable range. Perhaps they only care to sell to the Nokia faithful who have gone elsewhere simply because Series 40 on an Asha was no longer acceptable. At least here in the US, such a device seems ridiculously overpriced in a nation filled with cheap, but still far better spec'd, Android handsets that all have the GMS component to go along with AOSP.

I don't claim to know much of anything about overseas markets, so perhaps this is less laughable in many places outside the US... and that is fitting, seeings that is where this will be sold. I know that there are still a lot of Nokia fans who have been hanging on for dear life, wishing that something like this would come along, so perhaps it won't be so bad after all. I have noticed that being an American, even if you are consoidered to be poor by your neighbors and government, gives your perspective an odd slant, either way, when compared to the perspective of someone from another country.

a guy in india i know works for nokia , says that nokia x will be a series
starting with A110 model as base model

75% sure there will be no google play store. because microsoft doesn't want to pay google.

but i think leaving google play store will cause same age old problem of wp "lack of apps"

Wow Folks Another Tech site has reported that Nokia and Microsoft yeah Microsoft have put apps on the Nokia "Normandy" phone which means Microsoft has agreed to support it. The Nokia "Normandy" is running the open source version of Android which is free for everyone to use. This version of Android does not have the Google services or Google Apps. Amazon the online store use's this version of Android on it's Tablets. Amazon tablets have 140000 apps much less than Google's Main version of Android. Hmm it looks like when Microsoft
finally closes the deal with Nokia to buy it's mobile devices and services division Microsoft will two types of phones to sell to People 1= Windows 8.1 smart phones and 2= It's Nokia division ASHA low end smart phones running a version of Open source Android.
folks it looks like Microsoft is going to be a for real Devices and service corporation that is selling it's own stuff and other non Microsoft OS products.
