Nokia came out of nowhere and surprised us all last summer when it released its first Android app. Following the sale of its phone business, Nokia was suddenly an Android developer… and the company’s first app was terrific and innovative.

One of the best Android launchers just got even better – and you can finally download it

Nokia surprised the mobile community this past summer when the company unveiled its first ever Android app, Z Launcher. With its devices and services business out of the way and its obligations to Microsoft regarding Windows Phone gone, the company wasted no time in embracing Google’s mobile platform.

Z Launcher, a nifty and intelligent Android launcher that places a user’s most popular apps on the home screen and changes based on the time of the day, was initially released as a pre-beta intended to be made available to 10,000 initial testers.

Nokia reborn: Nokia’s new Android launcher is wonderfully simple and shockingly innovative

It seems positively bizarre to type, especially since I have been covering the company for nearly a decade now, but Nokia is no longer a cell phone maker. Once the largest phone vendor on the planet by a staggering margin, Nokia sold its devices and services business to Microsoft and will now wear a number of new hats as it looks toward the future. One of those hats, as it turns out, is that of an Android developer — and the company’s first big software announcement is a shockingly impressive one. More →
