One of the most interesting stories we’ll probably hear from Mobile World Congress 2014 will come from Nokia; a company that has been pretty much purchased by Microsoft and now puts almost 100% of it’s work force on new Lumia devices.
The interesting part about this is that plenty of rumors have been going around about the chance of an Android Nokia handset being revealed. At first, we quelled the rumors because they seemed so far-fetched that it was almost impossible to believe, but we keep hearing more about such a handset.
According to reports, the Android Nokia handset will be an entry level smartphone with specs at the very low end of the hardware spectrum. We may even be talking about 1GB RAM, 1GHz dual core and 4 inch 800×480 display territory here; the kind of specs we’d expect from a mid-range device from 2011.
I can’t quite wrap my head around such a strange business choice, and I cannot see the Nokia X selling well anywhere other than emerging markets. Our dreams of a high end Android Nokia handset may not be met this year, but we can continue to be hopeful for the future.
