Posted Feb 10, 2014

Nokia is reportedly going to launch an Android phone this month, according to The Wall Street Journal (WSJ). The phone has the code-name “Normandy” and it may be revealed at Mobile World Congress (MWC) later this month. The WSJ cited sources with Nokia’s plans that revealed the phone would use a modified “forked” version of the Google mobile operating system similar to the way that does with the Kindle range of products.

Nokia would integrate Microsoft services on the device with a special app store for some existing Android apps. Nokia announced a press event at MWC in Barcelona.

The final name of the device may be called Nokia X. The Nokia X is expected to have low-end specs like 4GB of storage and 512MB of RAM.
