    Man... we were this close to seeing Nokia wrap-up all the loose ends surrounding its embrace of Android, with the phone we expect to launch as the Nokia X. Come Monday, that handset should take its place on stage for the world to see, but a new rumor suggest that it could be just the tip of the iceberg, and Nokia may have a pair of additional Android-based smartphones still in development. What makes this rumor so juicy is that unlike the meager hardware expected to make up the Nokia X, these two other phones would deliver higher and higher specs, and one could even flirt with ...

    T-minus six days to go until Nokia's Mobile World Congress event, kicking-off a day that's going to be full of announcements. We've been anticipating a couple different devices from Nokia, but easily the most interesting (not to mention controversial) has been the Nokia X, the Android-based Asha successor that was developed as codename Normandy. Once the thing of crazy fever dreams, Nokia X has been looking all too real in recent weeks. When Nokia changed its color scheme on a number of its social pages to green, we wondered if it might be making allusions to Android, a theory that grew ...

    Last week, we saw Nokia make some changes to its online social presence, redecorating many of its pages in green. While the changes have since been reverted, speculation at the time suggested that the use of green might reference Android, the platform expected to form the core for the upcoming Nokia X, the phone we've followed as codename Normandy. As we settle in to the last week before Nokia's MWC event, where we might hope to start getting answers, a new Nokia X teaser has leaked, and once again the color green is a major focus. A few things strike our eye about the above image. First ...

    Just about an hour ago, Nokia changed its logo and the background on its Facebook page from the company's iconic blue to a shade of green. Jumping over to Twitter, and even Google+, we see the same change taking place. What could be the meaning behind this move? If it was about some sort of general environmental consciousness, wouldn't this be happening in April, closer to Earth Day? Instead, might it have something to do with the company's MWC announcement, scheduled for Monday, February 24? A couple theories are being tossed around: one of the most obvious looks to a connection between ...

    What we've been able to put together so far about Nokia's plans for the X/Normandy have painted the picture of a lower-end Android-based handset. The hardware's presence in a number of regulatory databases for developing nations fit with that low-end assessment, and suggested that Normandy could be a vehicle to get Nokia phones into the hands of very budget-conscious shoppers. With models like last year's Lumia 520, we know that Nokia can build some crazy affordable hardware, but we haven't had a solid grasp on precisely what Normandy might sell for. As we wait to see if Nokia really ...

    The Nokia X will be part of the Asha line-up. This is basically what an unnamed Senior Nokia India Executive unveiled, under the condition that his identity should be not unveiled. Additionally, said executive also unveiled that the phone will be available in India in March, in which context an MWC announcement could be highly likely. The specs that got leaked include a dual-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz, 512MB of RAM, four-inch screen with WVGA resolution, 4GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD), five-megapixel shooter sans flash (from all the renders and leaks), ...

    The Nokia Normandy that recently changed its name to Nokia X has had its specs tentatively leaked while some benchmark results try to both confirm and size them up. According to some, the phone will never see the light of day as an Android (forked though) powered Nokia, while others believe February 25 or March 25 should be the date of the unveiling. Whatever the case, we're seeing some more images of the phone in real life. Please keep in mind that these are most probably images of a prototype and that the color is either a red one (with a camera that has poor white balance), or one ...

    Tuesday, 25th, as it appears on the home screen of the leaked Nokia Normandy, is the date on which the phone will hopefully be unveiled. Whether that's February or March is yet unknown, as both months seem to have matching dates and days. We've just recently learned that the phone, codenamed Normandy, will likely be unveiled as the Nokia X, and now we're seeing it alleged specs being leaked. In order to run its rumored "forked" Android version the Nokia X will rely on its dual-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz, and a suspiciously low amount of RAM: 512MB. The screen is nothing to ...

    Nokia has started sending out official press invites for a Barcelona event, and the speculation can now officially begin. Some believe that the Nokia Lumia 1520 Mini (aka 1520V) will be there, alongside the Nokia X, and maybe some others. But what exactly is the Nokia X? According to @evleaks, it's none other than the Normandy. This certain Normandy is expected to be the first official Android-powered Nokia device, running a "forked" version of Google's operating system. It's latest alleged screenshots showed off part of the interface, and a date of 25th is featured on the Calendar, which ...

    There's no denying that Motorola and Google have nailed a unique product with the Moto X. It's not only one of the few devices in the market to have internals that are capable of being permanently listening to your commands via voice, but it's also the only smartphone in the world that will allow you to chose the color and trim that you want, if you're on AT&T that is. Still, we've all been curious to see just how well the market has accepted this new concept and idea of how a smartphone should be sold, since innovation is never a clear sign of user adoption. As it turns out, it seems ...

    The mysterious Motorola Moto X is coming this summer but some reports talk about August 1, others try to find different dates. It's coming, nonetheless. If this recent report turns out to be true, the phone pictured above might be the Moto X. Until then, it's just the Motorola XT1056. The source of the image believes this is the Moto X though, and the phone pictured, X or not, is being tested on Sprint's 4G network. The screen, according to the report, is roughly 4.5-4.6-inches in diagonal, which might be close to the rumored 4.7-inch display. There are 16GB of internal storage, a ...
