As more and more news are churning from the rumor mills about the Android smartphone which Nokia plans to showcase at the upcoming MWC alongwith other Lumia devices, our doubts are also converting into a fact that finally Nokia has seen the Android success reality. As per the latest rumors, Nokia is expected to exhibit its first Android smartphone codenamed Nokia Normandy or Nokia X at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in the late February.
The Nokia Android smartphone is speculated to come with a 4-inch (854 x 480) display, Qualcomm’s 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal storage, 5-megapixel camera, dual SIM support, and microSD support. This smartphone will run on the latest Google Android 4.4 OS. This device is also rumored to have Dual-SIM capability, and its connectivty options will include 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS, EDGE, AGPS and Micro-USB.
As its specifications suggest, this Nokia Android smartphone will be a low-cost phone. As per the renowned tipster @evleaks, this phone may be called the Nokia X.
Whether this phone is called X or Y, will not make much difference at this stage, as Nokia has lost the game as far as Android smartphones are concerned. We have written umpteen number of blogs when Nokia was in deep trouble that Nokia should encompass Android OS in some of its smartphones, but probably Nokia was hell-bent upon to put all its eggs in one basket of Microsoft Windows OS. The decision to persist with Windows phone OS has proved fatal for Nokia. We repeat again that had Nokia come out with Android based smartphone long ago then it must have beeen in the commanding position and once giant of handsets, must have its flag flying high in Finland. But Alas! that was not to be. Now it is too late to experiment with Android!
