Last week we heard rumours that Nokia might be working on an Android handset codenamed Normandy. And although the rumour has received positive feedback from consumers, it seems the Normandy is going into the trash bin after all.

According to insiders from Chinese website CTechnology, the team that was supposed to be working on Android development for Nokia was working separately from the division that will be acquired by Microsoft. However, since Nokia’s board has already given the go signal for the acquisition, the Android adoption project may soon be axed.

There’s good news though. According to the report, the Finnish company plans to get its CTO and his R&D team to work on wearable technology instead, specifically augmented reality, flexible displays, wireless power transmission and electromagnetic energy generation.
