Great news for us all, the Android enthusiasts, as Nokia might unveil a smartphone running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at Nokia World 2012. Not, it’s not official, but a tweet of the Finland-based company might suggest this.
As you probably know, today, on September 5th, the Finnish phone maker holds the Nokia World event simultaneously in Helsinki and New York. Everyone expected to see some new Windows Phone 8 smartphones, maybe some Symbian devices too, but an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean terminal?
This can’t be anything but good news, for us all and bad news for Apple, as their iPhone 5 will have to fight against loads of powerful Android devices.
The official Nokia Twitter account holds a message that reads “Breakfast in New York on a big day for us! Today we dine on Jellybeans” and a picture with a Nokia Lumia 900 next to a bowl full of jelly beans.
We all knew that Nokia and Microsoft have teamed-up to launch the next-gen Windows Phone 8 smartphones, but we also knew that Nokia had a back-up plan in case Microsoft’s mobile platform will not be successful. Earlier this year, a Nokia official said that Android will probably be the company’s plan B, but no one though this might happen so fast.
Now just imagine a Nokia smartphone running on Google’s Android 4.1 Jelly Bean: a terminal running on the world’s most awesome operating system underpinned by Nokia’s ample experience in the field and some fancy premium materials for the body.
Of course, the tweet might also be a not-so-subtle Nokia jab at Android. If so, maybe the Finns will discover that the “Jellybeans” are delicious and lave behind Microsoft’s operating system for one that is really worthy.
