Nokia X aka Normandy pops up on Browsermark's database - read the full textIs there anything we don't know about the Nokia's Android phone codenamed Normandy?

I know it is an experiment from nokia but why the hell would it start with a low end device? atleast make it mid end so people might be attracted to buy them... i don't know if people really go for low end anymore, especially when "mid end" are so cheap nowadays...

The people who get this phone should just download aptoide off the internet: its the same thing as the playstore just everything is free!

Didnt you read, its not google certified phone at all. play store WILL NOT work after you 'install' the apk.

its not just another custom ROM that you can play with.

It won't need Google support. It'll have HERE mapping services, Nokia Store and it allows side loading.

Considering where this will be sold, Goofle is unnecessary.

I've got high hopes on the build quality, I've not been disappointed with Nokia on that front. I don't expect it be a success without google support though.
