Raker, 11 Dec 2013would love to see how this flare against lumia 520.... lumia 520 is currently hands down ultim... moreLOL..I own one but I'm not agree with you. That phone is good but not great or ultimate as you say.
Banutu, 11 Dec 2013Every device out there with led flash is better than Lumia 520, and Moto G is on top of that list.The Lumia 520 is cheaper than the Moto G, average price is $130-$140 most places, in USA you can buy it for less than $80 half the price of the Moto G. So those phones compete in a different price range.

A very wise decision. Which should have taken earlier. The last chance for Nokia to survive.
This is the next Asha phone, look at the button. It is just bigger than the 501 because that is what people want. There won't be an Android Nokia because there is no need for it. The Lumia range is doing well. It surpassed iOS in Latin America, but it actually took its share from the low end Android Market. In Europe it has 10% market share. I hear more and more talk among my friends about how awesome Windows 8.1 is and how awesome WP8 is, too. People tend to link them together even though they have little in common. In the next years sales will only go up and that means more users, more developers and more apps.

Okay if Nokia just sold the Lumia brand just so that they can start over Nokia as a phone with android,...Elop is freaking genius o_o
Raker, 11 Dec 2013i think microsoft has its own plan. remember android is open source so any one can modify it. ... morethats right. everything can get popular easily with the 'nokia' brand as its quality has well known by worldwide :)
would love to see how this flare against lumia 520.... lumia 520 is currently hands down ultimate phone in world.
i think microsoft has its own plan. remember android is open source so any one can modify it. also as this phone dosent have any google services. google will get zero revenue and data with it. thus ms can use ITS own android to kill GOOGLE android. most of android share comes from low end if this is lowend. ms can win it easily. it has nokia name and as ms them self makes it then can sell it at a low price. much like moto g. now if a average derp get choice between motorola and nokia. he would go with nokia.
Obviously it would be nice to know how they are going to release an android phone since the upcoming acquisition by Microsoft. Maybe it might get released under a different brand name but anyhow, knowing nokia, if its a low cost android (which are usually low spec only) we have to expect a price tag of over 230 euro. A low cost low budget phone should be under 200 euro ....
Slim, 11 Dec 2013I dont agree Android should be the OS platform of choice as clearly there are security issues.... morebecause you believe everything the government saying please, every company bad as the next only way be truly safe is a tin can and some string
I see that now the android fans are giving some good comments about Nokia for this Rumour which isn't yet a reality!!!!Hahaha ! Then it means they're all gonna buy this very device if released!
Could be a Asha phone with a forked version of android by Microsoft? Maybe the hardware is fixed to prevent people installing a vanilla android...
Remember that in android forked versions, there is no Google play, nor G+. So maybe MS will get their services in this Nokia Normandy instead of Google services... MS own trojan horse to Google territory.
I dont agree Android should be the OS platform of choice as clearly there are security issues. If Governments around the world wont have it, then neither will I. Android is like an umbilical cord straight to the Google spy network and all other hackers. It is far too risky for business in particular. WE only use Blackberry and for good reason.
pskipper, 11 Dec 2013nokia's polycarbonate housing with high build quality + superb camera like the lumia 920 or 10... moreI will rather to have a little bit of lags for exchange of a much smarter Android OS than Windows Phone.
pskipper, 11 Dec 2013nokia's polycarbonate housing with high build quality + superb camera like the lumia 920 or 10... moreit will lag if they use dual core CPU. real android user knows that. android is not the same like iOS that is lite. android os is like a heavily equip battle tank you will need a big and hungry engine to operate it well speciLy the Samsung kind. so unless they will strip down naked the os it will run just as fine.
