This is How Nokia's Version of Android OS Will Look Like

 

Being an open-sourced platform, Google Android is free for any company to customize for its own use and Nokia seems to be following in the footsteps of Amazon.

Reliable leakster @evleaks posted an image on Twitter showing three different screenshots of a modified Android interface running on an unknown Nokia device. The tweet is short and simple: "Android on Nokia ( -virtual buttons)".

The Nokia smartphone in the latest tweet appears to be similar to the "Nokia Normandy" image posted in November. The handset is reportedly powered by a "forked" variant of Android, which is more in line with the software strategy adopted by Amazon for its Kindle Fire tablets.

The Verge reported in December that Nokia is building a low-end Android phone under the project codename, Normandy. An inside source told the publication that the project was going "full steam ahead" with a planned release this year.

It remains unknown whether this device will eventually see the light of day, especially after Microsoft is expected to close its acquisition of Nokia's Devices and Service Units this quarter.
