Just like most things in life, there are two type of Nokia fans. The ones that have their hearts in the Windows Phone platform, and the ones that are still holding out for the company to release some Android powered handsets.
There has been an absolute barrage of Nokia Normandy news these past few weeks.
And although there is no official confirmation that the Finnish company will take the Android road, the smartphone has shown up at a retailer, full specifications and all. An indication that Microsoft and Nokia aim to bring the device to stores helves soon?
The device is claimed to feature a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen display with 854 by 480 pixels resolution and support for dual SIM capabilities. No mention of any forked version of Android, however, and the chosen operating system version is said to be Android 4.4, also known as KitKat.
Similarly, there is no mention of a special apps repository, as Google Play Store access is claimed in this listing — and this is perhaps the most interesting bit here.
Not nearly as interesting are the rest of the hardware specifications, including a 1 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with an Adreno 302 graphics processing unit.
The low end capabilities are further confirmed with 512 MB of RAM and a 5 megapixel rear facing camera that supports autofocus, LED flash and HD 720p video recording.
In any case, take this as face value, but we should have more information on this in the weeks to come.
