Nokia should never think of moving to andriod completely, yeah the Nokia x was a good one even though I don't know if it help Nokia in any way. Nokia is Nokia and they have their style , that's why they are called Nokia moving to andriod will be the biggest mistake any phone company can ever make. Every one us already getting tired if android, they can only add more apps in their store. That's all they can bring to the table and that us all they will be bring in the next decade, they don't have a PC platform so they are limited to an extent, why do u thing apple is gradually taking over?, cuz they are intergrating their mobile flagships with to their pc platforms. Windows is the future I assure that, they still have alot to bring to the table and they are very mature and renovative, first of they changed the look if the icons by bring in live tiles which is way better and cool than the andriod and ios icons there's no argument in that, Cortana which is still in a Beta stages is very competitive with Andriods and even better than apples siri. Windows is putting her foundations and very soon she will be ready to go.

windows phone is the future, andriod doesn't has a pc OS So u see how windows phone is gonna rule over time??? Why do u thing apple is fast growing???? Cuz they have both the pc and mobile OS. Nokia will be the best in the next 5 to 10 years

Nokia to hell with Android if you arent in the favour of Android in your mobile sets then you should make a handy new software from your dumb software developers which can compete the droid devices or just start to make your grave because you arent stand nowhere in next 5 or 10 years.

The main reason to opt android phone is the availabilty of millions apps on google play.

Android is a dead end and will simply disappear in a few years. Nokia was wise to stay away from that mess.

NOKIS hardware
Android OS
NOKIA user interface

The last one will ensure all the legions of former Nokia users will go back to their familiar brand. Not saying only sell Android. Samsung has WP, Android and for a time even their own Bada. But all used Touchwiz UI.

If nokia has invented a new smartphone with android os the expection of billion people will switch to nokia from samsung ?

No way because nokia has a own way
if you a android fan go to samsung
only nokia can answer this.....

You can't assume that thing
because android is crowded and many local and international brands are fighting because of this os

nokia will not compete in world of android smartphone because it's crowded okie

Now that 70% of to overall phones activated world wide runs on Android it would be very wise to have a line of phones i.e lumia-windows running on Android!! do you know that Samsung,sony had a couple of models that ran on Symbian? that's a marketers point of view... imagine Nokia 808 running on Android, lumia 925 look alike running on Android just as N9 and Lumia 800 did. that will turn Nokia's fortune's around...

If nokia build a smartphone with android os i think it's not good because of nokia maps,city here,free navigation,nokia music and many more

its's better to use lumia 520 than to galaxy s duos because i have this 2 phone,the galaxy s dous has many apps and games are applicable but it's laggy and overheat even the RAM is higher than lumia 520,the lumia 520 it's so really impressive easy to use and unique apps and games and supersmooth.

people wake up for using android... Switchtolumia right now...
Now can't you believe it
try to buy it and believe it

Nokia is in business. Give what market wants rather than waiting for them to accept what you offer. Adapt change. Millions of Android users are not stupid. Go for multiple OS. Windows is just another os now. Android is happening. Why not firefox OS. I mean whatever works. But stick to your core values of best hardware and smooth UI.
With android and sturdy hardware Nokia can topple current leaders selling plastics.
Survive with change or perish with stubbornness.
Hard to see the leader becoming a bankrupt.
