Process of launching smartphones is going to take speed now. As per the reports, company is going to unveil first Android smartphone real soon. It will be either Nokia D1C or Nokia E1. They will not start with Edge at the first, as they will be reserving this beast for the future launches. With lots of being said here, it will really be interesting to see how audience will react to new Android smartphones from Nokia.
