Nokia's Facebook page ditches blue for green - might be a sign that its first Android phone is coming
As you may remember, Nokia’s invitation for its MWC press event was also quite green. Coincidence? We think not. As reported not long ago, Nokia is seemingly getting ready to officially announce its first Android-based smartphone - Nokia X A110, aka Normandy - at Mobile World Congress on February 24.
Earlier today we told you that the Nokia X / Normandy could cost around $110. That's a very low price for a smartphone, of course, but we must keep in mind that the handset is an entry-level one. The phone should come with a 4-inch WVGA display, dual-SIM capabilities, 512MB of RAM, dual-core Snapdragon processor, and 4GB of expandable internal memory.
But why would Microsoft allow Nokia to launch an Android-based handset? Well, the Normandy / X won't offer access to Google Play, and neither to other Google-specific services, because it seemingly runs a forked version of Android KitKat. Thus, it will still promote Microsoft's services.
So, Nokia's going green, and apparently that's an Androidified version of green. We'll see soon what can come out of this.
