British TechRadar has been on a row lately, coming with a number of concept renders of yet unreleased devices. We've gotta say the team behind those is getting better, if its latest piece of work is any indication. As you gleaned already, we're, of course, talking about the Android-touting Nokia Normandy...

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.

Amazing concept! Hope the real one will look the same as this one, with Google search bar, Nokia camera and all the goodies. Bring it on, Nokia!

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.

I don't like it! It looks cheap!

It is suppose to. This is rumored to be a replacement for the Asha line of feature phones and a step below the Lumia smart phones.

because it's a low end phone, that's why it's cheap. What do you expect from cheap phone? Super premium plastic like Galaxy S4, huh?

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
