The Nokia Normandy is rapidly working its way to market, and many have assumed it was a move by Nokia to bolster their market share, and that it was against and independent of Microsoft’s influence.

Normandy was of course the location of the invasion of the Allies against the evil empire, and in this case it very much looks like Nokia and Microsoft are looking to counter-attack and take back some market share from Google.
Do our readers agree that Microsoft fully supports the Nokia Normandy, and will definitely bring it to market? Let us know below.
