>RadioShack Thinks Nokia Astound Runs Android, Is Definitely Wrong

>Ah, The Shack. In recent years, it hasn’t been exactly known as the beacon of staying relevant in technology, and it’s stuff like this that highlights that point. This ad came from RadioShack’s most recent email ad. While always corny, they rarely ever contain blatantly incorrect information like this. For those who don’t know, Nokia has never produced an Android phone, and the Astound is no exception. This guy runs good old Symbian^3. Many might argue that Nokia should have been making Android phones, but this fail by RadioShack is a little presumptuous. But we’d like to thank The Shack for the chuckle it gave us this morning!

    Good ol’ symbian? I’m pretty sure that Symbian 3 was released after the version of android that the EVOs are running.

    It’s the evos that are running an old OS. 😉

    Fair point. What I meant is that overall Symbian is an aging OS. But the EVO just got upgraded to Gibgerbread, FYI!
