Nokia unveils a trio of Android 4.1.2 running handsets: the Nokia X, X+ and XL

Not to be content and limit its reach by only releasing Windows Phone handsets, Nokia has gone ahead and unveiled not one or two, but three Android running handsets — the Nokia X, X+ and XL. The handsets are based on the AOSP version of Android, as rumors had made clear, and lack all of the Google and Google Play offerings. Instead, Nokia has loaded the handset with its own suite of apps including Nokia Store, Outlook and Here Maps.

Nokia sees green on Valentine’s; a not so subtle Android teaser?

There is little doubt that Nokia’s been working on an Android device. We saw press renders last month from @evleaks and earlier today images of a prototype were served up by @seamissu. Now, @evleaks is back again with another press rendering that shows the Nokia Normandy dressed up in a variety of colors. His image is appropriately named “Nokia Normandies.”

Nokia’s Android phone leaks. Again.

When Nokia hired Stephen Elop to lead the company to prosperity, everyone knew he had to make several difficult decisions. When he announced that the company was going to kill all their in-house operating systems and bet the farm on Windows Phone, we all thought he had gone mad. Did he make the wrong choice?

Nokia is apparently working on an Android powered feature phone called the “Normandy”. I say “feature phone”, because Nokia is likely going to brand the device as an “Asha”. That and the device will run a forked version of Android, meaning it isn’t going to have any of Google’s services installed. Instead, it’ll have Outlook, Skype, XBOX, and all the other typical Microsoft services you’d expect to see on a Windows Phone. Last night, famous Twitter user @evleaks shared the first images of Nokia’s Android skin. As you can tell, it looks nothing like anything you’ve seen before.
