Nokia Catwalk and Eldar Murtazin
Remember Nokia Catwalk, the Lumia 920 based device rumored to be Nokia’s newest flagship smartphone? Well, even though the existence of this device hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, a recent statement made by Eldar Murtazin, a popular Russian tech blogger, seems to suggest the Catwalk rumors are accurate.
Although he’s known for his shaky history with the Finish manufacturer, as he previously made acid remarks regarding the Nokia N8, the Russian finally had some nice things to say about a Nokia product, while picking on one of its most important features at the same time.
Nokia Catwalk – A Stunning Phone Hindered by Its OS ?
Apparently, the past misunderstandings have been forgotten and Nokia invited Murtazin along with a few more tech journalists into a ‘secret room’ at this year’s Mobile World Congress and showed them a few of Nokia’s upcoming flagship devices.
This time around, Murtazin praised the aforementioned manufacturer’s device (thought to be the rumored Catwalk) with its thin aluminum body and PureView Phase 2 camera, saying it could be one of the most popular smartphones of the year, if only it were powered by Android and not the Windows Phone 8 operating system.
This statement made waves around the blogosphere as the opinions on the matter are divided. Some feel that an Android Nokia would sell much better, while others are happy with Windows Phone and like to have more operating systems to choose from.
So what is your opinion on the matter? Do you think that Android would make Nokia more popular or you feel like the market is already over-saturated with Android smartphones and the Windows Phone OS is a welcomed breeze of fresh air? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.
Thanks Android Central for the heads-up regarding Eldar Murtazin’s Nokia Catwalk statement.
