Nokia denies it is looking at Android

Remember that job posting by Nokia on LinkedIn looking for a Linux-fluent engineer that kinda, sorta made it sound like it was looking at building Android hardware?; as we guessed earlier, the job is for its HERE Maps support for Android and iOS...
This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

I resisted android as well because i was a supporter of symbian. Now symbian is gone. i try iOS and android. I prefer iOS for iPad and Android for Phone and that before apple goes nutS and start sueing everyone.
Now I use mostly Android and i like it. You are free to choose whatever that serve you even iOS, WP8, RIM or a china branded OS... whichever rocks your boat but to rant about Android without even trying is unbecoming.

Nokia definitely has the potential to increase its market share if it picks up Android. The thought of a Lumia device with Android is indeed exciting. I've tried WP8 and while I like its simplicity, it lacks the vast features I've grown accustomed to with Android.

Fine then Nokia go head and stick with your WIndows 8 (Sarcasm). But still you should at least try to use two OS and it will help and double your sales. I hope when Jolla comes out next year it will kick u to the curve

Nokia doesn't need to switch to Android as now it has good result with its WP8 L920.
Now we can say that, L920 is the leading of WP OS but if Nokia wants use both WP and Android OS, Nokia will be the best for both OSes I guess.

nokia should give android a chance as there are alot of people out there still love nokia.not because they are blind nokia fanboys but from their previous experiance wit nokia..got to admit nokia made some good quality products... (unlike is**t users they are blind and love ifruit for watever s**t they make no matter wat)

ok couple things, one why bring apple users into it, you need to grow up and realise if they want to use those products let them
second you like all thse android fanboys only want nokia to go android for the sake of it, you just want everything android. if they did go android you all would then be like drop wp8 drop wp8...you arent for choice your just pro android and im sick of it now. every other comment is slating the 920 then begging nokia to make android phones.
if you take out your fanboy limited sight you would see that windows was the best option nokia will dominate there, then if a plan b is needed it should be symbian or meego not android. there are a flood of android phones and samsung is dominant
and before you go but nokia will offer pureview or crap, android as of yet cant support it plus many of you have slated the camera anyway....bet if it was running android be a whole differant story.
so how about you be for choice instead of cornering everyone to have android.

Yup...and a couple years ago Zuckerberg said there was not going to be a facebook phone. We'll see in a year or so where Nokia actually sits with this.

it makes me laugh how people jump in and ask Nokia to just go with Android...i assume they all did a better job with the market research and strategy than Nokia did?

A high end Nokia Nexus with PureView fat ass camera on it would be a mega hit.. especially if they can come close to N4 pricing with it. Id jump on it for sure.

for all those that jumped onto me for making a comment earlier.i said NOKIA SHOULD GIVE ANDROID A CHANCE MEANING NOKIA SHOULD MAKE PHONES WIT ANDROID OS , NOT DROPPING THE WHOLE WP8 THING.IMO WP8 looks cool...and why i bring apple into this is non of your bs
