if nokia decides to go android htc and samsung can kiss their market lead good bye, expecially if they market things like pureview technology & nokia maps as nokia specific, only those two things would be enough to swing a major heft of people over to their side
Android Is Best, 03 Jul 2012Nokia has a backup plan when Windows Phone 8 fails....bankruptcy. There, I fixed it for you.No. MS wouldn't lett'em go bankrupt snce that would damage MS's own image. They would (and have been willing to) buy Nokia and make it formally a MS division.
Look at all the droidboys begging for nokia. You want nokia hardware buy a nokia phone. Or else stick with flimsy samsuck.
REDON, 03 Jul 2012did you see nokia air , nokia air is android whith nokia sense i can think of a viable os its called meego it amazez me every day but at the same time it makes me very sad that nokia wont make more phones with it.they could do at least 1 every year because meego is simply incredible
before Android i had nokia phone n95 and it was the best phone i ever had then android came up
if nokia when android start to make up installed android on her phones that was make nokia the first phone company
but now the people started to change their company and get to know htc and samsung
before we were using nokia and nothing but nokia
i think nokia had to install android before a long time
not now bcz there is more clients that get to know other phones
I will never buy Nokia with android.
I like WP in Nokia. Because I want all of my device work togather and that is only possible with windows. And I am Nokia fan.

gazmatic, 03 Jul 2012i'm talking about proposed features and capabilities...
from what they announced, wp8 seems... moreThe proposed features do look promising but it still has to prove itself n give users solid performance in order to switch.
If wp 8 can have both fluidity n power then i'll also say "shut up ! And take my money" especially for a wp 8 lumia.
Given Flop's record to date probably RIM, assuming they license the OS to them!! It would be like shifting deckchairs around on the Titanic. No no, that is not water around your neck. Don't worry about that sinking feeling.
I would like to see variety in the phone market regarding OS's and seeing how Nokia is the only thing Windows has got going for it - it is vital that Nokia sticks with Microsoft and makes it work. Android, Windows Phone, and iOS are the only 3 OS's I see standing in the long run (hopefully iOS gets taken out of that equasion)- BlackBerryOS, Bada, Symbian, and Meego not so much.
gazmatic, 03 Jul 2012f android. i will lose ALL respect for nokia if it gets android.
android is LAGGY!! i didn... moreConcur regarding the Android Lag. Look at 2 most powerful Android phones (One X & Galaxy S3) and both have hundreds of people complaining on forums about the lag.
I have a Galaxy S3 - I love it but the screen redraw is hugely depressing. If they can't fix lag on a quad-core phone what are they playing at?
In contrast when I had the Lumia 800 for a short period of time, absolutely flawless operation. Zero lag.
Nothing Is better Than MAEMO 5 but Nokias top management is full of stone heads who can't think in the right direction. MeeGo is 2 years Old opesting systems which still competes with all other OS. think the future if Nokia would have hanged on with MAEMO & MEEGO
In case of failure with WP8, Nokia should go with MeeGo. That OS has so much potential and I can confirm that because I've had an opportunity to play with Nokia N9 a bit. Symbian is good and it made a lot of progress, but it still needs to catch up with the leading OS's
nokia+android=win.hope to see this great device as it could be since nokia started a lot of concepts on smartphones while other manufacturers just copied out and owned them as their original built.nokia pls make android phones
Ed007, 03 Jul 2012Wp 8 > JB ?... Lets wait for wp 8 powered phones to hit the stores use them for a while and... morei'm talking about proposed features and capabilities...
from what they announced, wp8 seems to be the most capable os to come. up to 64cores, vector scaling, directx, windows nt kernel. this means a lot. and as an amateur developer this is quite intriguing. i hope it works
jelly bean just seems to make up for the limitations of current android. another problem will be implementation. only 10% of android is ics. that is quite sad. that is the fragmentation that developers hate.
like i said, i'm using windows 8 right now and i love the apps, so if they can be easily ported over to windows phone 8 i will definitely buy it
Btw, Android ICS is compatible with Nokia N9. But why not produce smartphones with Android as well. Nokia will get much more money if they can manage how they build and design their Android phones properly. Windows may have a high potential but Android already has that potential so I think brands (not just Nokia) should have both.
