Windows phone should have got things together by now but are still no match for ios or android especially with jellybeans improvements. Nokia should sack microsoft and its windows rubbish thats been going for some years now. The lumia phones not getting windows 8 is worse than what samsung does, at least sammy updates its highend phones. I say boycotte nokia till they use their brains and get android on board! A lumia 900 with android os would be tempting!

This news would certainly affect selling of windows 8 running devices. Cause people would love to sun android on Nokia. This is a warning to Microsoft

Now Nokia is crawling back to Android foot for mercy, Android told Nokia before but they were to arrogant but look at them now they are almost broke! Even the daily interests for Pureview is gone! NO carriers NO decent sales! NO decent Specs!
I want to hear from Nokia fanboys now how Android is great when Nokia said so!
Even if they joined Android it wouldn't make any difference who wants to buy an Android phone with 2010 specs made in Foxccon printed all over it Nokia in price of One X or Galaxy S3 or LG HD4?

If this is true then Samsung is now praying that WP gains more marketshare or else Nokia will eat all of Samsung's Android market.

The Galaxies will fail to compete against the Android running Lumias.

If they ever go for android , they cannot match Samsung in specs but they are going to offer good software support , they may go head to head with SE while HTC and Samsung fight for specs.

I would never have wanted Nokia to go for Android so that the choices more mobile OS would multiply. But seeing how Nokia performing these days, Android would be a bittersweet saving choice for them. With Android running in all major phone manufacturer's devices, it is sad to think that I will be having the another Droid, only with a different experience.
