Nokia X (Normandy) spotted on Vietnamese retailer's site, Google services spotted
The Nokia Android phone, known as X or Normandy, has appeared on a Vietnamese retailer's website confirming its Google friendly innards.
The X or Normandy will be Nokia's first forked Android handset. Microsoft recently bought Nokia and this budget handset will offer it a way of selling its services to the rest of the world, outside of Windows Phone.
But surprisingly the handset is listed as featuring Google services such as Google Now, Google Play Store and YouTube. This would be a surprise as Microsoft will want to push its services like Hotmail and Bing.
Specs for the Nokia Normandy include a 4-inch screen with 480 x 854 resolution, 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 512 MB RAM, 4GB storage with up to 32GB micro SD capacity. Dual SIM is also supported and the phone features a 5-megapixel camera.
No pricing or release date were listed but it sounds affordable and we'd expect it to arrive around the time of Mobile World Congress in February.
