Nokia and Microsoft signed an agreement 3-years ago that made Windows Phone OS its “primary smartphone strategy.” The company is set to unveil its first Android-powered device at Mobile World Congress and it seems to all but confirmed to shed the Normandy code name and be called the Nokia X.

A picture surfaced yesterday and this morning Nokia sent out invites to the event, showcasing four arrows that point inward and make up the letter X. Very creative indeed. If you care to partake in the momentous experience you can tune into the live webcast via their company blog on February 24th (details listed above).

As stated yesterday, the Nokia X will run customized version of Android 4.4 KitKat with a 4-inch display (480 x 854 pixels), 1GHz dual-core processor, dual-SIM, a 512MB RAM, 4GB storage and a 5MP camera. Pricing is expected to be below $200.

    Excited for a new Android player in this game!

    The only thing interesting about this phone is that few people would’ve expected Nokia to make an Android phone. Beyond that… I think I’ll pass on the live stream 😛

    Nokia should go with Android 3 years ago. As history proves, going with WP is a total disaster. It got so bad Nokia will stop selling phones and its phone division is sold to Microsoft.

    Yes Nokia was on a burning platform, too bad it jumped into a shlthole rather than a lifeboat.

    This will be a flop without the goodness of Google. Sorry Nokia…too little too late.
