It’s been a few years since the sale of the mobile division of Nokia American Microsoft. Under the terms of the contract, the Finnish company no longer has the right to release smartphones under its own brand. However, the term of the agreement expires in December 2016, so we can get a new phone from Nokia. The photo of the planned first child yesterday leaked on the Internet.
Apparently, the novelty will receive the name Nokia A1. On the interface it is clear that to operate the device will be running Android. Apparently, on top of the installed proprietary shell Z Launcher, which first appeared on the light in 2014.
As the Lumia line with its original design is now owned by Microsoft, Nokia had to create your smartphone with a normal appearance. Roughly speaking, Nokia A1 is indistinguishable from any Chinese smartphone created by some obscure company. But it is possible that the end of the year the design will be finalized, with the result that the market will see something more memorable.
At the Build conference 2016 speakers from Microsoft said that in a short time using the Windows-based computers 10 could be taken to return calls from your phone to Windows 10 Mobile. But it seems that this is not all. And if the owners of Windows-based smartphones will be able to use a personal computer for communication, the owners of Android-smartphones will not be left with nothing. Because for them, Microsoft is preparing something delicious.
Representatives of the American software giant told the public that in the near future in the table “top Ten” will be integrated notifications from smartphones running Android.
In other words, on Windows 10 it will be possible to display a variety of notifications, including missed SMS, calls and other things from your smartphone based on Android. It seems that the implementation of the foregoing plan to use voice assistant Cortana for Android and cloud storage service notifications. In addition to viewing Android notifications on your computer screen with Windows 10 users may also be able to answer calls and cancel them.
It is as though banal didn’t sound, but of course no one called the exact date when Windows 10 to receive the support notifications from smartphones. The representatives of software corporations are limited to one small phrase about “a future version of Windows”. It is not excluded that they say just the same about the next summer update, which is known to us under the name “Anniversary Update”.
