Nokia Normandy Shows its Color Options in Leaked Render!

Believe what you will about the alleged Android-powered Nokia Normandy, but the device is making quite a splash, and we’re not even sure it’s real yet. Regardless, we keep seeing the device peek its head out from the shadows with increasing frequency.

We first saw some leaked renders and screenshots of the device about a week ago. These shots seemed to indicate an incredibly highly skinned build of Android 4.4.1 running the  on the device, which appeared to be codenamed the Nokia A110. Then yesterday, we saw more leaked images, and this time they came from a physical device. Of note, one of the leaked images showed the device-in-question running a highly skinned version of Android that featured similar UI patterns as the previous leak.

Now, we have one more image to add to the rumor mill fire, and it comes in the form of a leaked press render, which can be seen to your right. Once again, the alleged Normandy device features the same UI stylings as seen in the previous shots. This includes visible support for dual SIM (dual signal indicators) and a partially Metro-inspired launcher.

What are your thoughts on the Normandy? With all of these leaked shots flying around, as well as the overall similarity they all seem to share despite their vastly different sources, one can’t help but speculate. If this is indeed real, is a Nokia-built Android device your Holy Grail of smartphones, or is its UI too far removed from stock Android for you to even consider the device? Share your opinion in the comments below!

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
