Some more new leaked images of the alleged Nokia 'Normandy' handset device have been hitting the entire tech. Web as of late. The most recent, posted on January 16 by the @evleaks shows a familiar operating system, which looks pretty much like the Windows Phone interface grafted onto the Android platform.

The current thinking supposedly is that the Normandy device would be a good entry-level phone for the emerging markets. Mr. Tom Warren at The Verge blog has said that he has heard from one of their sources that the device is going to sport a stunning 4-inch display, a powerful Qualcomm S4 processor, smart 4 GB of storage, and speedy 512 MB of RAM.

He has also said that the Normandy device is now running a custom version of the Android OS built on the Android Open Source Project code base. The leaked screen shots from the @evleaks also make it appear that it will run the Nokia Inc.'s Camera, the Here maps app, Skype, and some other Windows Phone services.

The doubters have always wondered about why Nokia made a wholesale bet on the Windows Phone Operating System, and whose handset business is in the right process of being absorbed by the tech. giant Microsoft Inc - would build anything with the competitive Android OS inside. Time will tell us that.
