Nokia, the company that adopted Windows Phone because its CEO was too afraid of Samsung to shift to Android, is about to debut its first Android phone. By all accounts, the handset will debut in under two weeks at the annual Mobile World Congress trade show. Rumors suggest the Normandy will feature a 4-inch display with 854 x 480-pixel resolution, a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, microSD support, a 5-megapixel camera and dual SIM support. And now, a leak out of Vietnam gives us our first idea of how aggressively Nokia has priced its first Android handset.
According to an early listing on Vietnamese online phone retailer Mainguyen’s site and an associated Facebook post, the “Nokia X” will retail for between 2.2 million to 2.5 million VND, which works out to as little as $104. The listing also may confirm a number of specs, all of which are listed below along with screenshots from the retailer’s listing and Facebook post.
