After he sent out a tweet revealing the UI of the unannounced Nokia Normandy
last week, evleaks re-tweeted an image (originally tweeted by @seamissu) on Sunday of the same device. Considering that the Finnish based firm's Devices and Services business has been purchased by Microsoft, you might be wondering how the Android powered Normandy will be pulled off. The device is expected to run a forked version of Google's open source OS. That means you won't see the Google Play Store or Google branded apps on the handset. This is the same thing that Amazon does with the version of Android it uses on its Amazon Kindle Fire tablets.
We will most likely see the device unveiled at MWC next month. And while this trick never seems to work out perfectly, the phone showed a March 25th date in the previous leak. So we could see a late March release of the Normandy.
Many of our readers over the years have expressed an interest in a Android powered Nokia phone. We could be just weeks away from having that dream come true.
