After a previous post in which we reported that Nokia was working on an Android based Lumia device, C Tech, a Chinese based website, are reporting that Nokia is in fact still working on such a device until November, which is when the Nokia/Microsoft merger could earliest occur.
C Tech are reporting that the device is being made in partnership with Foxconn, who also make Apple’s current iPhone range as well as other Android OEM’s, that the partnership has already made 10,000 prototypes for the said Android device prototype.
It is rumoured that the handset is not a high-end device, which is somewhat surprising, giving Nokia tend to aim for the high end market when developing such devices and that the device is packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 8225Q chip. No other details about the devices specs, nor any images are not available or have been leaked so far, thought this may change in the near future – who knows!
We shall await to see if in fact the Nokia-Microsoft merger does happen and what the company may decide to do when a general meeting of stakeholders and the board are due to meet in Beijing in November.
Would you like to see a Nokia Android based Lumia device? Do you think Nokia should look at Android as a way to come back into the smartphone market if the merger of their current manufacturing area occurs with Microsoft?
