Nokia tested Android-powered handsets before Microsoft purchase

0. phoneArena 13 Sep 2013, 16:53 posted on

Basically ever since Nokia first partnered with Microsoft to build handsets exclusively running Windows Phone, there have been those who have wanted to see the company ditch that strategy and begin developing Android devices. Of course, that possibility is gone now that Microsoft has agreed to purchase Nokia's devices unit...

nokia lumia 900, for a month could not connect to lte network issues, nokia lumia 920 camera grainy , the finally updated 2 months later, nokia lumia 1020 horrible pictures camera , turns everything into yellow, im sure in a couple of weeks they will address this issue with another software issue, but those have been my 3 experience with nokia. So people here like to talk crap about windows phone, but nokia hasn't released a problem free phone to this date!!!

name one device without issues

it shows that you are not a software developer...

every software has bugs and a bug fix will only introduce new bugs

this is what we deal with... we just try to either minimize them or make them non issues

again.... name ONE device that had zero problems

There's nothing wrong if Nokia make some flagship android phones, to know if they'll become successful in android world or not.

It would be something wrong, a lot of the boys hate Android, they do not unders any circumstances want Android to be number 1. They would sacrifice a big major company rather then admit they was wrong, and Android is becoming everything they hope it would not be.

We call that the Steve Job syndrome.

We could see that Nokia was about to switch to Android,as soon a Mr Elop stepped in an is Microsoft company,saying that Android was a Trojan an not right for Nokia,but its Windows that is not right for Nokia,Nokias Top Selling Camera Smartphones with Android on them would be the Top Selling Smartphones in the current market an put Nokia back in the No 1 position an make Samsung realise they had to change there Stratedgy to gain to Top Position back,Andoid was the right choice for Nokia but Investment from Microsoft made them switch to Windows

Guys...whether its Nokia with Windows or Nokia with Android...it does not matter...all that matters is what one likes and one finds the phone he or she is happy with...its sad that nokia devices are going to MS...but still even if it has to be that way ..LIFE DOES NOT CHANGE....i would just say 'Choose a device that suits you the most and your needs...Windows or Android does not matter...i love Nokia with Windows and i am happy with it..its one's choice and and not a fight for who gains the best place in the market

Oh well I find that those who are mourning over Nokia's and Blackberry current state are those kind of guys who never can let go their past ex-gfs. Almost everyone here had good memories in the past with Nokia phones including myself. Move on people! Accept Nokia's fate. They were just having too much of ego to adopt Android and that shows how much they cared about their fans and their employees. They made stupid decisions costing people their jobs. That's purely selfish, I'd say. I'm not hoping for Nokia or Blackberry to be big players anymore in future. Hoping to see Lenovo, LG, Sony to be major players for next few years.
