Do you love the look of Windows Phone but find yourself balking because there still aren’t anywhere near as many available apps as there are on iOS and Android? Nokia might have just what you’ve been waiting for. The company has launched a number of new smartphones since the deal that will eventually see Microsoft take ownership of its devices and services business was announced, but its most important device launch could be still to come. We’ve seen images of Nokia’s $7.2 billion Android phone leak several times but a new photo published on Monday evening by @evleaks seemingly reveals the device’s home screen for the first time. And that home screen, from the look of things, will bring Windows Phone’s tile-based “Metro UI” over to Android as a series of custom widgets. No other details were made available with the leaked image but some still believe the Normandy will launch sometime this year.
