Android powered Nokia Normandy is seen once again

Android powered Nokia Normandy is seen once again
With the belief that Microsoft's purchase of Nokia's Devices and Services division led to the scrapping of the Android powered Nokia Normandy, another render of the device was tweeted on Monday by evleaks. Unlike previous leaks of the Normandy, this one shows the device in various colors including white, yellow, red, lime green, blue and black. Some other leaks have displayed the handset wearing red or a light blue color.

While there might have been a time and place for an Android powered Nokia smartphone, now is not the time with Microsoft eventually closing on its purchase of Nokia's Devices and Services division. A published report out of China says that the team that was working on the Normandy project is now working on wireless charging.

This tweet from evleaks might be the last time that we see the Nokia Normandy, unless Microsoft changes its mind. That is something that we can't see happening despite the huge amount of money that Microsoft makes on each Android phone sold.

Oh please... Stuck with Samsung? Did you know that there are many choices for us Android users? There's Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC, Huawei, Oppo, ZTE, Meizu, Xiaomi, Vivo, Google etc. Please say something more less-fanboynism, cuz you're embarrassing Nokia and Windows Phone.

Great reply. You forgot ASUS. I own Padfone 2 and all I can say that it is a masterpiece. I just love it.

hahaha... look at this MS salesgirl moaning.

It sounds good if it's gonna happen. People loves Nokia, but they hate the ugly boring live tiles of WP. Truth... Trust me, It will sell like a hot cake if Nokia uses Android. Everybody welcomes Nokia with Android.

The NSA also loves Android - it's the worst OS when it comes to security, and they don't have to do much to harvest the data and make it readable. WP8 does have it's flaws, but it's also far more secure than Android or iOS.

This won't release atleast until Nokia's acquisition by MS is complete (or the deal fails. Just hoping). Because this will perform well and show how successful Nokia would have become if it weren't for Elop and Nokia tie-ing down with WP.

The Nokia/Microsoft deal is as good as sealed. The fact that some of you still don't realize this proves just how out of touch with reality you are ;o)

This is everyone's dream phone, the dream phone that's unlike others. It's a Nokia phone, powered by Android.

It would be a dream phone, if it was high-end or even mid-range+. But this is propably low-end.

It's everyone's but Nokias.. That's obvious.

We both agree on something.. Nokia makes awesome devices... I'm glad I got one of the last Nokia badged devices.. I'm gonna frame this 1520 when I'm done with it.
