It's never a good idea to just say no. Look at Samsung and HTC for example. They have both Android and Microsoft phones. Android's sell better. Nokia shouldn't have been so stubborn and give Android a chance. I think things would have been a lot different right now. But this is what you get when you think of yourself as above everyone else. Honestly, I am a little glad Nokia took a punch in their ego.

Nokia should definitely go with android. I don't think there is anything wrong in this decision. If people is ready to accept nokia with android then yes nokia should do it. Still it is time. We are aready.

Anonymous, 14 Sep 2013Nokia didn't have a chance with this. MS had been looking to buy them for years. Most Microsoft partnerships usually lead to them (Microsoft) buying the other party out, Or gaining access to technology and/or information the other party holds, then dropping them like a stone once access to want they really went into partnership initially for has been granted.

We are waiting Nokia with android. Nokia is our favorite brand of smart phone. But difficult to use our language in Symbian Os.
any os would hav 'passed' the test ,if the ceo wuldnt hav been cunning mr elop!
No Nokia please stay with microsoft. do dont want to be another android Brand., keep with the windows project., but come on hurry with the apps and games and you see more people switching to windows phone you can asure that,,Saludos...
the only reason nokia refused to switch os platform to android because they dont want other android brand having their camera apps apk. :-)
waiting the time when nokia sinking together with microsoft..
I guess it won't be long to wait. we'll see in next 5 years.
People say, why an other android smartphone maker... does ut really matter if it is another android maker? Not using Android means not being able to be as good as the opposing company. People say the iPhone is so much better, not because of OS, but because of build quality. Nokia has an incredible build quality. Android on top of that and you would get one of the best android phones around. Comparing that to htc is nonsense, because everyone likes Nokia, but without Androud nobody wants to buy a nokia. Imagine what huge hype ut would create, if its word of mouth, that nokia starts making android phones. Thats way huger than any other company making android phones, except sammy, because they are known now.
You're wrong..Nokia sold vertu to private equity group EQT VI last year oct 2012
