Liveblog: Nokia to announce its first ever Android phone
Hola amigos! It's time for us to attend Nokia's MWC 2014 event, and it's time for you to experience what the manufacturer has prepared for us. Word on the streets is that we're finally going to see that Android smartphone from Nokia, but as you know - it's not going to be anything typical. Instead, Nokia is said to have havily customized Android, in order to make it suitable for powering its low-end line of handsets.

Of course, Nokia X, as they call the company's mythic Android phone, may not be the only thing we'll be shown. Who knows, there might even be a new Lumia and a bunch of dumbphones, but all in all - yeah, we're most excited about the X, or Normandy, or whatever it is.

So make sure to come back to this page at 2:30 AM ET | 1:30 AM CT | 12:30 AM MT | 11:30 PM (Dec 23) PT | 7:30 AM GMT | 8:30 AM CET, if you want to become part of Nokia's unveiling. This is our liveblog article, and we'll be keeping tabs on whatever happens at that even in a timely manner.

I wish it would high end PureView Android. This would have make a big bang in Barcelona and no one would care about Samsung, Sony, BlackBerry ... etc. Nokia knows very well that billions love it and would buy like crazies any high end Android phone from it, BUT THEY DONT. WHY NOKIA WHY??

If they released the 1020 with stock Android, I'd be on that so fast.

MS is the reason why apparently. But wait, there're still hope.

Remember Nokia said before that they will bring more Android phones including a high end one after the Nokia X? So, don't lose your hopes, Nokia is still in the business.

Well, I felt quite warm and happy when I read this comment from you because no one in PA ever said that to me before, I've been called a "troll" many times by many people in here. But anyway, I'm very happy to see you said that to me. Thanks John!

Well, i definitely agree with Johnnokia, not trying to be hater here.... But i found out most of the PhoneArena user are either hardcore fan of certain Operating System, or either certain brand, not many of them are like you who are unbiased with every brand, keep it up bro :)

Any chance they announce their Android based high end smartphone today?

Unfortunately, no. First, there will be low-end one, and there might be high-end one later. I'm not sure though, because M$ can see it as a threat to WP (which it is), so they might kill it.
