Nokia Normandy listed on Vietnam retailer's site with access to some Google services
posted by Alan F. / Jan 27, 2014, 2:34 AM
Surprisingly, the listing mentions that the phone will have support for Google Now, the Google Play Store,YouTube and other Google applications. If true, this would be quite a surprise since a forked version of Android usually doesn't include support for Google services. There is the possibility that the features used in the listing were merely copied and pasted from another Android phone.
The listing doesn't mention any pricing information or a launch date. According to master leaker evleaks, the device is going to be called the Nokia X when it comes to market.

Have you heard of project svelte in android 4.4? Kitkat is designed to run comfortably on 512 Mb ram devices. About the processor, this is a midrange phone after all so it will have a cheap processor.

I agree, it's fake or a mistake. If the Normandy is real, then the Google apps won't be there for sure.

They already make money off of Google's os and android in general, to the tune of BILLIONS a year. They even make money on every PS3 sold because of blueray, MS gets money for its codec with the BlueRay consortum. I think people in general forget how expansive their portfolio is.

I also vote FAKE! Looks more like this site just took the leaks and pictures which are already out there - and then spiced it up a bit. Google Maps? On a Nokia? DON'T THINK SO! I doubt its gonna be sold using its internal codename - NO WAY they would call it Normandy.

Hmm I have read no Nokia press statements or response to these Tech sites blogs about this Nokia "Normandy Android OS smart phone. Until I do, I think this thing is a crazy man's Fantasy phone. it kind of reminds me of The MS Surface smart phone. It looked good and specs were good but it never Materialized as a fact. Folks before Nokia even Puts Normandy out they have to get Microsoft's Approval because MS will have to support it and all the Windows 8 Lumia smart phones Nokia has made prior to the Microsoft/Nokia deal closure. the deal could close before this month is out 5 days left in January folks.
