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.
