There were reports few days back that Nokia was working on a Lumia device running Android. When most of us thought it could be some sort of experiment as part of Plan B if Nokia had any, today another report leaked some more info on it. Chinese site and Weibo account CTechnology revealed that Nokia already has thousands of prototype which will be a cheap Nokia Android device.
The device, based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 8225Q chip, was being developed and tested by Nokia’s Beijing based R&D team, and was already at somewhat advanced prototype stage. In fact, before the announcement of sale, Foxconn has already manufactured and delivered a batch of more than 10 000 prototype Mountain View units.
The most interesting part of the report is that Nokia’s Beijing based R&D teams are still working on it, and will cancel the project only after the Nokia-Microsoft deal gets finalized in November.
