pearl-quill, 01 Jul 2013What else can you expect? WP8 can't even handle quad-core processors. In fact WP8 can handle Quad Cores but the OS dont need it as Android because WP not lag at all LOL
i see no reason why nokia and google could not come to aggreements to ship android nokias, nokia would allow google software to be implemented or removed as with nokias software, for example the mapping system but there would be of course many apps that could be stock but removable so user can install what THEY prefer more, and looking at nokias current phone line up and their past history with products, i would be very interested to see some crazy nokia EOS device with 41MP camera running a stock android OS, awesome
I found symbian very bland upon the first time using it.
Nokia either has to blow us away with an innovative new OS or go mainstream with android if it wants to keep its head above water. This analyst is correct.
What else can you expect? WP8 can't even handle quad-core processors.
Why not install both Maps and give people the choice,I think if its just the Map thing is holding them back it is very easy to overcome it within corporate negotiations framework.
MdN, 01 Jul 2013That's the reality. Even 1-dollar HD games. Just Google it. Developers are already desperate.Android developers know android users are stingy and will not pay up, thus they will take your private details and sell that for cash. Or provide your phone numbers to adv.
And google is helping them by providing vague "permissions" haha.
Did you know with "Phone state" dev can read your number?.. Perhaps not.. but hey do not let that hinder you from getting free apps :)
BULA BENIS, 01 Jul 2013there is no risk because nokia pedigree is very much over sasmung. 90% of actual samsung users... moreOnce people realize Nokia uses Android they will not use it, because Nokia will not drop Nokia Maps in order to use Google Maps and many of today goodies from Nokia will dissapear with Google, that is one of the main reason Nokia not like Google.
Now, people says they will drop they S4, One, Xperia Z and others in order to buy a Nokia phone....LET ME LAUGH HARD hehehehe that will not happen and people that said they will do that I bet they dont have any of those phones.
Besaides this is IF THEY CHANGE TO ANDROID not THEY WILL DO CHANGE TO ANDROID....geeze
daraas, 01 Jul 2013Even analysts troll, sometimes (many times, actually). If this so-called 'analyst' ever did... moreAre you smoking crack? Nokia has no exclusive agreement to sell WP8! Guess you havent seen any of the HTC WP8 because they arent selling worth a darn.
come on make android os with nokia its good think make it soon & posible
indeed nokia's hardware is the best, the only thing setting them back is their OS.
It's amazing how nokia could have done such a huge mistake. Their salvation is right in front of their eyes and they refuse to see it
If Nokia adopts Android they will sell so much devices and make so much money that they will not need Microsoft anymore.
this would be the logical answer. so Nokia need to think hard on the situation. Android would be amazing as nokia hardware is brilliant. and they would be the biggest threat to Samsung.
its not too late for nokia to start making android phones. i think if nokia will start making android phones, they will surely compete with the market.
Very true , If NOKIA not changing their mind , History will tell others , how arrogance of a leader destroyed a great company.
Dear Nokia employees , wake up and ACT , your management is sleeping .....
It is true .., if nokia want to survive ... If nokia will have an android phone , i believe Samsung Htc and many others are going to fight against the real giant which is slipping meanwhile.
antonpc, 01 Jul 2013Nokia is almost bankrupt and it is only a matter of time.Nokia to bankrupt? Oh really?
The Boy with Red Hat, 01 Jul 2013Just remember Google will no give any money or profit to Nokia if they decide to use, so, this... morethere is no risk because nokia pedigree is very much over sasmung. 90% of actual samsung users are indeed nokia's ex-users, and they ready to jump back to nokia hardware quality hardware in a minute. nokia can rule the android world in a months, not more. a phone like nokia lumia 925 with android can be a best seller very quick, iti is gorgeous even with wp8
They should dump Micro$haft and focus on Asha. That os is the most resource efficient available.
