Nokia Android prototype leaks in photo A photo allegedly showing another view of the prototype Nokia smartphone running Android has surfaced.
It emerged late last year that Nokia had been testing an Android prototype device in case it was unsuccessful with Windows Phone smartphones. Of course, when Microsoft announced it was to acquire Nokia's phone business, such a prototype likely lost any chance of ever coming to fruition.

Still, details and some photos have previously leaked allegedly showing Nokia's prototype design, and here is another one that surfaced from a microblog in China.





The protective case hides some of the design, but it reportedly appears to be an Android alternative to Nokia's Asha devices, aimed primarily at emerging markets.

The Verge cites sources close to the project as saying the phone used a forked version of Android with a custom user interface that had elements from Windows Phone and from Asha.
