X Marks the Spot for Android-Powered Nokia X Launch at MWC in 5 Days?

Ah, the fabled Nokia X. What started life in the rumor mill as the unlikely Nokia “Normandy” has now become a device with more leaked renders, snapshots, benchmarks, and specs than the next minor revision to Apple’s lowly iPh*ne.

All of the hype and rumors are to be expected. Despite the device’s theorized low-end aspirations as an Asha replacement, it will still be the first Nokia-powered Android device. And if Nokia’s superb build quality isn’t enough to excite you on its own, especially given the disposable state of modern consumer electronics, I don’t know what is. We are now a mere 5 days away from Nokia’s announcement in MWC next Monday. And while nothing is set in stone, the leaks keep on coming.

Are you excited at the prospect of a Nokia-built Android device? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to check back here on Monday for our coverage of the inevitable. Want to get in on the hype? You needn’t go any further than Nokia’s own site to prepare for next Monday’s announcement. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to check out all of our past coverage of the rumored device.
