The Nokia Normandy has continued to make its way to market, with the latest being the handset’s appearance at the largest Vietnamese online retailer The Gioididong.com.

There they confirm the previously released specs, including a 4 inch FWVGA 480×854 pixel screen, 5 megapixel camera, a 1 Ghz dual-core processor and 512 MB RAM and 4GB Storage.

The also make the unexpected claim that the dual-SIM handset will be able to access Google Play, Google Now and YouTube, but it could be that they are simply cutting and pasting from the usual specs of any Android handset.

What is pretty interesting about the specs is of course that Windows Phone 8 would run even more happily on the handset than Android, suggesting the device is either a response to consumer demand for Android or a new approach to reaching a large audience with Android, rather than an attempt to release an even cheaper smartphone than the Nokia Lumia 520.

just because a retailer parrot leaked specs and lists a rumored device, doesn't confirm anything, more trustworthy retailers than this have listed devices that never saw the light of day before.

Even if it did, I wouldn't touch the thing.. with Microsoft buying out Nokia's device/service division it'll probably have the shortest life span on record, and that's not discounting the WP-wannabe interface, pass.
