Only if the ASHA platform UI was integrated with Symbian, then it would have been the best OS ever (of course for those who are not app freak).
N8 and 808 are the last best from Nokia.
I totally refuse the idea to buy a Nokia with WP, i am a nokia lover, Nokia did well on their proprietary OS i am not sure if will buy another nokia after my 808 and N9
This phone may be released but it wont be under the Nokia name brand,i asked the Nokia rep today in our store and he confirmed its more likely to be released with the Asha name minus the Nokia, as MS bought all the rights to that for the next 2 years,apart from 4 already produced Nokias that are slated to come in the next quater,

do you really believe that is an android device? with a button just like for asha series?
I wonder if this in time, might replace the Asha series.
Rumours of a Nokia Android - supposably more evidence coming forward for it - it's all so confusing.

"NOKIA N95 doesn't have a dual-core processor!
NOKIA N95 use OMAP2420, it is a system-on-a-chip (SoC). Technically the OMAP2420 is dual-core, but the second core is a TMS320C55x digital signal processor (DSP), not an ARM processor. And this core isn't used for general processing. That's mean NOKIA N95 has only one single-core processor ARM1136 (330 MHz)."

Or dual cpu means 2 cpu's? That would be quite common for Symbian. A year ago i read all the new stuff s^3 had in front of the old series, and i can tell that there was written that dual-core support has been introduced. Anyway, thanks for saying. I will look more into this matter... Now i'm looking for those specs. We're on a Nokia developer site. So it wasn't just an article...

I just switched to Nokia Lumia a month ago after 2 years of Android and without any BS, apps are limited since it's given but I don't see myself going back to Android. However, a Nokia Android? I can have 2 Nokia smartphones, each with a different operating system!

You've got to admit, the apps coming out today are far better, more pc quality than the apps from the symbian age.

Even if 808 couldnt go with Android, they can make separate phone line with this OS. They can sell phones with s^3 and Adnroid or Droid and MeeGo even with Android and WP, like other companies. As a result of Elop policy they dont have Symbian, kill MeeGo, WP sells very poor, they have 90% in microsoft OS, but they arent in the top three or even five smartphone producers. At the end they sold phone part of their company to MS, it is a Elop success ?! Many people like Symbian in the past, they leave platform before Nokia show Belle (many people dont even get to know it better), they chose Android, but Symbian fans dislike Windows Phone in most cases. So if you lose popularity u cant chose WP as your only OS, maybe as second os, anyone can tell you that. Nokia lost independence probably when Elop became CEO. It's good for us when we have 3 OS, but not for Nokia, phone part doesn't exist, they surrendered in 2010/11 ? They have Nokia Music, Ovi, Mail, Maps, what went wrong ? They could at least try make phones with Android and 2nd OS...
