Leaked specs show a modest device likely to be a low end offering

We have been hearing rumors for a while that Nokia was working on an Android powered smartphone. Not too long ago, screenshots of what was supposed to be the interface for the Android-powered Nokia device leaked.
Today another leak claims to show the specifications of the rumored Android device. The smartphone will use 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor paired with 512MB of RAM. Other features include a 4-inch WVGA display, 4GB of storage, and microSD card slot to help with storage expansion.

Other features include a 5MP camera, 1500 mAh battery, dual SIMs, six available colors, and access to Nokia Store and third-party app stores.

If I understand things correctly, I don't think MS could stop this from coming out. I think all MS could do is stop them from releasing it with certain brand names. From wiki:
While Microsoft will license the Nokia brand under a 10-year agreement, Nokia will be unable to use its name on smartphones and will be subject to a non-compete clause preventing it from producing any mobile devices under the Nokia name through 31 December 2015. Microsoft will acquire the rights to the Asha and Lumia brands as part of the deal.
To me, that sounds like they could still build and sell handsets.

In 2016 they could. I can't believe someone would buy any device with those specs two years from now...

I think they could sell it now - just not under the Nokia name.
