According to a recent leak by CNMO, Nokia is looking to get back into smartphone business. The site claims to have leaked images of the Nokia C1, Nokia’s first-ever Android smartphone and its first phone of any kind since Microsoft bought its original phone business.
Nokia made an official announcement, discrediting reports about getting into mobile business and reaffirming that it currently has no plans to manufacture or sell consumer handsets.
Back in November, Nokia (the part of the company that wasn’t sold off to Microsoft) announced its first ever Android-running tablet, the N1. We got specs and pricing information then, along with a very vague release time frame of “Q1 2015”.
Today Sprint has announced that it will soon start selling the Nokia Lumia 635. The device will make it to Sprint as well as both its prepaid brands, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.
For a while, rumors were circulating that Microsoft was working on McLaren; a successor to the Lumia 1020 with a giant camera and “3D touch” gestures.
