Nokia, the old times cell phone leader is heard of revealing an Android-based device to the world, says a news agency. The buzz is near to the fact as the information further suggests that the phone will be officially launched at the Mobile World Conference that is held at the end of this month.
The cell phone maker has already confirmed a press during the event, and it is forecasted that the company will currently stop being attentive on Windows Phone. Presently called ‘Normandy’, the device is sure to unveil at MWC suggesting the Android’s ‘forked’ edition.
In place of building normal popular Android handset that can give access to Google mobile services, Nokia has plans to team up Microsoft services into their edition of OS and bring out a totally different app store which will show up most of the current Android app list.
Nokia’s new Android device is reported to appear as the “Nolia X”, and will have the exclusive Windows Phone style UI that is motivated by Nokia’s earlier phone operating systems.

Still, the quantity of apps that would be accessible is not disclosed.
Looking at the reports including information and images of the Normandy, it is clearly seen that the device is formed in the same manner as that of Nokia’s Lumia phones, involving the normal range of bright colour options.
