So what exactly is Normandy? This seems to be the question on everyone’s mind after @evleaks‘ last tweet. A few days ago, he gave us a list of codenames (seen above) belonging to upcoming devices that Nokia reportedly has in their pipeline. I had no clue what they were about, though MyNokiaBlog has made an interesting insight that the names are themed after 007 (of which I have no real knowledge). Normandy seems to be the “missing link”, according to evleaks, who posted the following tweet just today:
Nokia Normandy is the missing link.

My guess is that Normandy may be an important device for Nokia/Microsoft. From what little research I’ve done on Normandy, it was the site that seemed to represent a turning point in World War II, leading to the restoration of the French Republic. Maybe this device is to become the hero device for Nokia/Microsoft? Maybe it’s the mysterious Lumia 1820 what we’ve heard so little of?
