The Verge has revealed some details about the Nokia Normandy, which the Verge has now confirmed is a low-end Android phone, which was to take a position between Nokia’s ASHA handsets and the Nokia Lumia 520.

The handset would run a forked version of Android, and would be able to run apps like Skype, and was meant to be launched in 2014.

According to the Verge the team is still working “full steam ahead” but I suspect this will be one project Microsoft will be cancelling as soon as they take over.

The news does confirm there exists a gap in Nokia’s Windows Phone line-up for a really cheap but fully capable smartphone, and we wonder if Microsoft will be releasing an even cheaper Windows Phone 8 handset or even go back to Windows Phone 7 to fill the gap.
