Nokia's Normandy phone is supposedly going to be shipped with an Android-based operating system.
It may be Nokia's alternative take on Google's open-source platform. So far what we have seen of the cell phone indicates support for dual SIMs, lockscreen notifications, a dialer screen and a custom version of Skype's mobile app.
The project will not be associated with Google's apps and services because it will run a forked version of Android. Rumor has it that Nokia has been making progress with Normandy and we are all hoping that this phone will be made sooner than later.
From the looks of it, it seems very user-friendly and easily navigational. It has a Windows phone style with easy to read large text. The unique feature is that there are no virtual buttons on the Nokia Normandy phone.
