Last week we saw a couple of leaks of the Android powered Nokia Normandy’s user interface which came from the famous leakster @evleaks. Yesterday he tweeted another image which shows the device itself. The new image is a retweet from another user @seamissu. The whole idea of Nokia’s android powered device as alien to most of the people considering the Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia devices.
But it seems like Nokia will release the device with Android as early as next month. It has been widely believed that Nokia is planning to launch the device by the upcoming MWC at Barcelona. For all the folks who wonder why Nokia is using Android from Google, let me make it clear that they are not using Android from Google. Instead they are going to use a forked version of the open source Android which won’t have the Play Store, Google now or any Google services for that matter. Another device which uses the forked version of Android is Amazon Kindle.
