Microsoft owned Nokia is all set to launch its first android phone, reportedly named Nokia X, in the market. The device is listed on website of a Vietnamese online retailer and is priced at $110.
The said model A110 will have Android OS v4.4.2 kitkat version, dual core 1 GHz processor, 5MP camera with 2592×1944 pixels, 4GB internal memory and a memory card slot which supports up to 32 GB.
Nokia, once the king of cellphone market, doesn’t have a history with other operating systems. It discontinued Symbian products, and currently offers a line of low-cost Asha smart phones with custom made software, but which failed to create a good impact on emerging mobile market. The company has lost its ground mainly because it reluctant to adopt Android technology in their devices.
But Nokia’s Android will be different from other devices which won’t have direct access to Google Play store app and other Google developed features. Instead of it, company will use similar services developed by Nokia and Microsoft like mapping service Here and Nokia application store.
Recently Finnish company changed the colour of its Facebook and Twitter pages to an emerald hue, the signature colour of Google owned Android software which could mean the green light for the hotly-rumoured Nokia Android phone. But there is no official confirmation about the device yet. The product page of the Vietnamese retailer still says that ““the company has not officially announced” the phone.
