In an interesting turn of events, Nokia is currently playing with the idea of an Android phone, while it is on its way to Microsoft.

According to an interview with TechNewsWorld by Jeff Kagan, a Telecom Analyst, "Nokia is working closely with Microsoft, and they have been fairly successful at building the Windows Phone [devices], but Nokia is not limited to working with Microsoft. Not yet anyway."

Nokia therefore is targeting the low-end smartphone market, under a special project code named ‘Normandy’ and is reportedly testing a customized version of the Android OS that can host a wealth of apps including Skype. So though Microsoft is eager to push out Windows phone to increase their market share; according to Jim McGregor, Principal Analyst at Tirias Research; "The low-cost smartphone is the growing volume segment market in both emerging and developing markets, [Nokia] would have a better chance with Android because of the larger app base, but it's a critical part of the market that no handset vendor can afford to ignore."

And it seems that Nokia may already be geared up with a proper replacement for Nokia Asha line-up for the low-end market. An image of a new handset with no physical button has just popped up on Twitter through @eveleaks last month that apprantly appears to be the part of Nokia’s ‘Normandy’ project on Android smartphones.
