Pro thes... morefirst of all android is the key to make profit thts why they are interested in android rather than concentrating on windows phone..if android is crap tell them to stop making an android powered device
Good idea . Will cement Lumia brand in android. Slowly we are going to win
@Carol.... I had mostly nokia phones back in the day,then i had an ETEN with win mobile 6.0....fell in love with it...started to hate symbian and normal mobile os's..got htc touch diamond just for wp....was one hell of a ride...2 years later they announce wp...was dissapointed...then i see android,the true successor to win mob.Had the galaxy s1,s4 and now i have the note 3...i fail to see the crap in them..been runing the note 3 on stock rom(only rooted) for 5 months now..hell i'm writing from it...i dont see the lag you mention...i care to remind you this is linux not windows....rarely a linux distro is getting clutered like windows and even then it takes years.I don't get the hate against samsung honestly...yeah it plastic but its lightweight,its gorgeous and has enough gimmicks to keep you interested...yes i dont use the samsung launcher....never used it....also the s1 has 4.4.2 cm....phone runs great,still emulating ps1 games on it..no lag....so please tell me how can android be worse than any os out there? It's not android 2.1 era anymore
I love wp than android. Believe Me android is crap. Evem with nexus phone,it is crap. Pro these day just lying about how good the pure android is on nexus. Really? Android fanboys are loser. And i dont this is true. But last week wp poweruser do say something about 'something amazing' is coming to window phone. My guess is,maybe is dual booting thing.
thewajih, 07 Jul 2014That is a massive mistake they should never make...
Keep Lumia for Windows only.......they wi... moreActually, they should not make this a high end expensive mobile......
Because I would rather wait for Googles project ara rather than buying a high end Nokia android phone in beta stage
That is a massive mistake they should never make...
Keep Lumia for Windows only.......they will destroy the lumia brand....their only brand that has fame and strength
They should give this android powered phone some other name...... maybe this is a succesor to the Nokia XL ?
It would be intelligent analytically to keep android powered phones under one brand only.....the X brand
I would love to buy it if it would be a succesor to the Nokia Xl......
A mid range budget phone , 8 mp camera , 1.5 gb ram, 5 inch screen or bigger....2 mp secondary camera for around 170 dollars!
It would kick ass!!!
I think the android powered lumia will use their recently z launcher to be their primary UI
I think the Android powered lumia will use the z launcher as its primary UI
Alien, 07 Jul 2014Finally! If this is true and they to make a high end android lumia, i will buy it! WP may be ... moreUse your high end more then 3 months installing and playing, without formatting (as it always needs) and see the mighty lag. Yeah, you maybe got used with it. But try using some wp devices and you will know the difference.
I hope they can ReProgramming the Android OS the way the Microsoft can.
Android OS is lengthy, not efficient.
Of course, the main reason for an Android OS: for the ability to run android apps.
Finally! If this is true and they to make a high end android lumia, i will buy it!
WP may be lagg free, but thats the only advantage. Try a high end android and u will get no laggs also.
Im not saying this cos im an android fan, i just check the statistics.. android rocks all other os's..
I don't get it. They ALREADY have the android powered budget phones.

And that's not cause of the "simple" but cause of the efficiency, and of course, Nokia quality.

Your first smartphone in your life was an android, most probably a crappsung. You had no idea that smartphones are used since you were born. You got used with ardroid and now you find it easy and simple, and of course, the mass is using it, so it has to be good, no?! So now, you touch other systems and have no clue how to work with them. That is not cause of the system, that is cause of your lack of knowledge and interest to learn. WP is ten times easier then android for any smartphone newbie there will ever be, was and come. While android has allot of stuff you can stuff in it, not everybody need's it. REALLY, at some point's is quite useless what ever it does. I needed it before, when i was 20 to experiment with such of things. Symbian is great in doing allot of things like that, android is a wannabe in front of it. While i still love Symbian, i admit, at my age i just need fast, quality security and allot of stability. Efficient, fast and straight up to the point, this is how wp it is. I would love symbian to be at this point wp it is, but well, it was killed. Still, i can say, Symbian being more straight and clear is still not that easy as wp is (i learned this system in less then half a mounth), and to call android simple is just like calling grandma Marion, a pepsi young lady.
