Android-based Nokia Normandy, aka Nokia X, shown off in a brilliant concept video

According to him, the phone will be dubbed the Nokia X if it ever does make it. It goes without saying that the marriage between Nokia hardware and Google's OS has been something of a blissful prospect for many. Unfortunately, it does appear unlikely that such a device will make the cut once Microsoft takes over Nokia's handset division, seeing as it'll be a direct competitor to its Windows Phone 8 platform. Reality aside, we invite you now to take a look at the below concept video, showcasing the Normandy running on its own version of Android. The folks behind TechRadar obviously felt that Nokia would go ahead and profoundly customize the stock Android experience, and we tend to agree -- the Finnish company does have quite some experience with the software side of things. Let's take a look.Obviously, there's still no hard evidence that such a device will indeed reach the market, though serial leaker, @evleaks, has once again fueled discussions about the possibility.

Are you currently in the market for an Nokia Asha 503 feature phone? If not I doubt you will like the "Nomandy". This will be a very low end phone placed in the model line-up below phones like the Lumia 520 that currently sells for $150. I think you are expecting too much from a $100 phone. I expect Nokia will execute this new UI very well and may revolutionize the low-end market. However, this phone is targeted at developing countries not markets dominated by high-end smartphones.

If (if) it makes it, don't expect to see anything on it "Google", this thing will be Binged out worse than an LG Revolution on Verizon (remember when?). Regardless, I'm still getting a few "collector's items" if they make it. Nice render though, props to Tech Radar.

True. It'll be one heavily modified Android UI for sure. It almosts looks like an Android/Windows Phone hybrid, so Bing as the default search engine won't be a surprise. I actually got over Google and adopted Bing as my default search. I'm glad I switched.

Do not get too enthusiastic about this device because within 6 months Microsoft will be in charge of all of Nokia's feature phone and smart phones devices and service when this happens Microsoft will have to pay the costs for this smart phones further development, Manufacturing and marketing. I think Microsoft should make this smart phone to get into the Android world. Microsoft should load it with MS office and Nokia apps. I think it will sell well enough to make a profit
