But they receive profits in Nokia Maps and their new HERE City Lens, HERE Drive and HERE Maps+.

i love Lumia design and that was the only reason i bought Lumia 800 but when i spent couple of weeks with WP its really need time to catch up with Android/iOS
if i can have Lumia design with Android i will take it and never look back
Nokia will be huge if they make this leap, people nokia mapscan be added to their ui this will be ground breaking news!!!

Absolutely no, in fact Nokia maps are in updating many times. More often th... moreDoes Nokia Maps bring in additional revenue? i am afraid, No.
When it comes to business, revenue, market share, profit/loss matters. No one is in better position to understand this than Nokia.
That would be a sick combo! So much potential and so many brilliant people working there, but they obviously have a few retarded ones who make the biggest decisions to ruin everything else.
If Nokia released a slim pureview android with amoled it would change the the mobile history forever just like the first iphone. Most android users where once symbina/nokia users. My old N95 is still better than many phones released today.
Any way if nokia sells Android phones Nokia phone would be the topper in market because of their built quality and camera.

Anonymous, 01 Jul 2013But Nokia maps have lesser coverage than Google map.not really. nokia maps even has public transportation maps integrated. more functionality and features than google maps. plus it is updated more frequently than google maps, like someone already said.
Back in the day Nokia and Microsoft have shared many good days with some amazing products but as windows phone declined in competition with android and iOS Nokia lost its throne ! They should move to android before its too late or bring some new twist to windows phone OS ! The metro UI is one of the main reasons windows phone is failing ! Nokia makes great devices but OS is more important for it to shine now. I bet if nokia adopts android Samsung will face some serious competition ! They need to change their lumia line up too ! Lumia is outdated.
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2013But Nokia maps have lesser coverage than Google map.are you insane.
Absolutely no, in fact Nokia maps are in updating many times. More often than Google Maps, you cant compare those two, Google Maps is useless aside Nokia Maps.
Nokia switching to Android from windows would be good strategy...Windows phone is awesome but when it comes to application it really sucks. :)
Nokia-android os will kill samsung and htc. I will be 1st in line to have it. Please nokia.. :-)
Still think that Nokia has the best hardware, even better than apple. It's not as stylish but specs and reliability is better. If they go Amdroid, arguably the bets OS, it would probly sell like crazy.
AnonD-36414, 01 Jul 2013no way,they abandoned meego...no point fr android...not now when things r looking encouraging.... moreIm agree Nokia had the chance to have two strong ssytems, WP and MeeGO. But they sold so little numbers in N9. They just quit.
MeeGO was DOA (Dead on Arrive)
no way,they abandoned meego...no point fr android...not now when things r looking encouraging.if they r not having market share,thats due to late policies of ms regarding sum deal breakers.e.g.no file manager,no 1080p ,fm radio,no cracks and app relating roots(yes,they r craze over android,why pay for nfs when u can get its crack for free),all of which r expected in upcoming update except d crack thing....nokia just need these features to put in their trump card eos,so they r waiting,i hope.
yeah, 01 Jul 2013nokia maps is made by nokia, not windows/microsoft. they could make an android phone with noki... moreTheres is restrictions. Google dont want to toss their maps (among other Google stuff), neither Nokia. And sincerely Nokia maps is light years ahead Google Maps.
