Throwback: HMD puts Android on a Nokia feature phone

By Anton D. Nagy July 19, 2019, 2:00 am

In a world dominated by smartphones with huge touch screens that will also soon bend and fold, HMD Global goes back to the drawing board to rethink its feature phone strategy, and what better way to release a feature phone than to have it run Android?
