Elop chose Windows Phone as the only OS of Nokia in purpose. He wanted to decrease value of Nokia company so Microsoft could buy it cheaply.
What a very dramatic end for Nokia and a big conspiracy done by Microsoft...

I believe other companies pays Nokia to stay away from android because Nokia+Android = EOL for other brands.
Will Nokia listen to customers and use android in their phones?

They wouldn't be the first company to vanish rather than to be less arrogant towards customers. What were they thinking when they married MS? Heck, even the best intended marriges can end in divorce, why flog a dead horse... go back another while you still can. And what's this here maps designed to run on android? The interface is crap... nothing like nokia maps on a nokia phone, what a waste or resources! (or maybe nokia is smarter than we think... tinkering with android via the maps in preparation for an android phone?)

Stop struggling people! It will be stoopid for nokia to adopt android, very stoopid! You think that nokia didn't took in consideration to put Android in their smartphones? Android is just not good enough. Has so much to learn from Symbian that it would take 20 years to do it. It is also just a kid who thinks is tough in the giants world. But in the same time, nokia did allot of stoopid things. Allot of stoopid decisions and now is no turning back. WP8 is the only chance for them after they ditched the only real good systems for mobile: Symbian and Meego. It is strange how could windows mobile survive in the world where symbian was the leader, and now symbian is dying letting windows to stay alive, just waiting, like always, to take the led in market share.

I've used Nokia smart for past eight years (i.e) 6681/N73/C6 and due to poor perfomance of symbian and lack of feautures in symbian I have to go for an Android phones...

If Nokia focus on Android, definitely I will back to NOKIA and NOKIA will became the winner in market again!!

The problem with Android si that is full of bugs variing from one phone to the other (screen freaz, restarts ... A.s.o.) wp7,wp8 altough it doesnt have a big store with loots of apps it's more stable than Android ... (and every one loves Android because is much more costumizable than WP , but android eats more baterry and memory , too much apps runing result in delayed responses from the device, or even crashes, freezes , etc. ) how come that a Nokia Lumia 800 can beat a Samsung GS3 and a Iphone 4GS on connectivity speed ... Nokia has a 1.4 Ghz(single core) procesor and runs smoother than GS2 and GS3(some cases) ...

I've been looking for the best Android phone since it's the most popular OS now, and it's hard to choose. If NOKIA has been making Android running mobile phones, I will strike and buy it without any twice-thinking. BUT, they just won't do it...
