Nokia prepares first Android smartphones
Now this is an interesting move – the Microsoft-owned Nokia will present its first smartphones based on Android (and not on Windows Phone) at the end of March.
The first Android-powered Nokia smartphones will belong to the company’s upcoming Asha 4xx line. The devices in this line will run Android 4.4 KitKat along with Asha Touch UI and will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with two cores at 1.7 GHz and built-in Adreno 306 graphics. The devices will also have 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot (up to 64 GB), a rear 5 MP camera and a 2000 mAh battery.
The devices are expected in late March, and more precisely on March 25. The Nokia 4xx line will sell for around USD 250.
