Hello everyone. Today I was able to take a look on a very odd device. A Nokia prototype running Android. The phone has the form of an iPod Nano 7th gen but without a home button . Model was rm-1026. Android version was 4.3, and had a custom launcher where you could like draw a letter on the interface and showing you the apps starting with that letter.
Construction was aluminium, micro-usb and nano sim card.
Anyone having more information about this?

Dimmensions were most appropiate to a car key. Like an Audi remote.

The Android launcher is very similar to z launcher, but in an early development state . The more interesting fact is about the device, it was so small for an Android device ...

Any picture from you? It would be interesting to see it.
So I suppose the size is like a smartwatch.

I was not allowed to take pictures..... it is bigger than a smartwatch, it is almost the same size, maybe a little taller than ipot nano 7th gen.
It was made of Aluminium , on the front was the screen up top and on the bottom part a speaker grill. The nano sim and usb port were on the upper part of it. Camera was without flash, no nokia logo, on star-up a “NAU” logo. On back were engraved prototype , imei no and RM-1026

I've only heard rumors of a device, but nothing I could point towards that would assist on your search.

Funny how many things actually exist as a prototype but rarely ever come out as a product. Seems like a smaller device would have been a hit amongst this crowd here - the Android would have been a hard sell though.
