(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – It looks as if another big name is joining in on the smart glasses market.
Nokia is reportedly dropping its plans to work on its first Android phone, codenamed Normandy, in exchange for its focus on the development of wearable devices.
According to a report from NDTV Gadgets, the company’s wearable segments include “emerging technologies such as augmented reality, flexible displays, low-powered electromagnetic energy generation and wireless power transmission,” features that could set Nokia apart from its competition.
Previous leaks suggested that the mobile company was working on a number of Android devices, such as a 7-inch tablet that was powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor.
Speculation has said that Nokia’s first wearable device could be ready for launch as early as 2015, but there has not been any confirmed information yet.
