SYNAPSE CIRCUIT - NOKIA GOES ANDROID? Normandy?

SYNAPSE CIRCUIT
NOKIA GOES ANDROID?
#Nokia #Normandy #Android

Good early morning, Synapse Circuit Readers! I sincerely hope that all is well with you and that you are not suffering too much – if at all – in this freak storms that’s put much of the UK underwater! I do pray for those whose homes, businesses, etc has been flooded. It’s awful! Brace yourselves because, according to the weather reports, the worst is yet to come! Make sure you don’t get blown away on Valentine’s Day!

Hmmm... What’s this? Nokia is going to reveal an Android handset???? Gadzooks!

BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS 2014
Yes, it seems that we are going to see so many handsets at this convention! I have always said that Nokia ought to produce an Android handset and by the looks of things that’s what Nokia has done! Yippie!

Believe it or not, I have been a big fan of Nokia as the N95 was a brilliant multimedia handset at the time! I still have it lying around somewhere... It needs some refurbishing! Anyway, here’s some specs from Evleaks:

Nokia X: 2 x 1GHz Snapdragon, 4" WVGA, 512MB / 4GB / microSD, 5MP, 1500MAh, Nokia Store + 3rd party, dual-SIM, 6 colours.

It could be that Nokia will, like Amazon, develop a UI that is very similar to Windows over the Android operating system. We’ll see... I am curious!

MICROSOFT CASHING IN ON ANDROID?
Why not? There has been talk of Android apps being ported to the Windows operating system for ages now! Now there’s even more talk – what with Microsoft’s new CEO, Satya Nadella. It makes sense! The one thing that Microsoft lacks on its mobile devices is apps! And who knows, if Microsoft gets involved with Android then it could mean that the quality of Android apps will continue to rise!

It would have been ideal if Google’s Sundar Pichai had taken over Microsoft’s reins as I believe that he would have quashed the patent trolls that keep getting in the way of progress! I wanted to see Microsoft and Google team up to get Apple to relax and get producing devices that people want! Will the imminent iPhone 6 prove to be as innovative as the premium Android handsets? We’ll just have to wait and see!

NOKIA SHOULD GO ANDROID


What do you reckon?   

Take good care!
