Nokia Nomandy to have Nokia Store & 3rd part apps support. Specs revealed.

Nokia Normandy asha 1045evleaks has confirmed specs of Nokia Normandy aka Nokia X and as first reported by us, it indeed comes with 4-inch screen. Read more about its earlier leaked variant RM-980 here, which first revealed more about this device. The specs revealed today are mostly in line with what we have at our Nokia Normandy page.

Also, contrary to some listings and latest rumors, it will have only Nokia Store and 3rd party app support. It was rather clear from start, since it will run forked Android. Though 3rd party app support may hint about support of Android app stores like “Yandex”.

The device may come really cheap and fall in the Asha 5XX price range, and see an announcement at MWC.

  • Nokia Store? So existing java apps will be made to run on tyhis using the Midp emulator? 😮

    • JLIT99

      Could be possible. Remember that Nokia had a plan to unify all platforms (MeeGo, Symbian) on Qt (which they could have done even if they had gone Android..)

      Perhaps the idea was to not have to port all of the Nokia Apps suite (HERE, XpressBrowser, MixRadio etc..) to Android, to save time. Java ME and Android share a lot of code and I have run some of my old MIDP games using an app on Android with some varying success.

      Slightly disappointed with only 4GB as an option for internal memory, seeing as WhatsApp seems to save duplicates of every photo and video you send, but if the phone supports Apps to SD card, it should be ok.

      • Yep. But because those apps can be much more enhanced keeping in mind the powers of android, maybe the emulation won’t work so great enough. Probably keeping webapps for here and Mix Radio will be an okay idea for now because Nokia is to launch proper apps for all platforms after the deal.
        Apps on SD wouldn’t be as powerful as they’ll be on the phone memory. So wish it had 1gig ram and 8gig of storage. But because its not, I want Nokia to price it not higher than the Asha 503. A 520 with similar or slightly higher specs sells for around the same price these days. Then cut out the cost of WinPh license.

          Totally agree.. and glad to see more devices are being imported to India

          Regarding MixRadio, is Nokia keeping it after acquisition?

          • I’m not sure, because they haven’t bothered telling anyone how and for what the Nokia brand is licensed. As per present scene, maybe it will stay with Nokia only. Even after the re-branding, they are calling it Nokia MixRadio. So there.. Plus there are services such as Nokia Mail which won’t work too good when run by somebody else. MS won’t like the yahoo powered Nokia Mail. Let’s give some work to the Advanced Tech division too 😛
