Should Nokia switch to Android?

0. phoneArena 24 Jan 2013, 10:18 posted on

Hooray, Nokia is profitable again! After a long and painful internal transitional period, the ex-largest cell phone manufacturer has finally swung back to profitability during the beloved holiday season (Q4). Understandably, the profit isn't that big - it's $585 million, but at least it's a start...

I'm neutral about it. However I loved the Nokia N9 so much but I wasn't that interested once I found out it was MeeGo-based. Someone told me I could switch it to Andriod but it will have lagging problems, so no thank you.

Anyway I'm so into Sony right now so it does not really matter. However IF Nokia comes up with an Andriod Nokia N9 I will be one of the first ones to get it!

They should make both Android and Windows Phone handsets not just switch to one or the other that is retarded. All of the other top manufacturers make both so why should Nokia be any different !

I prefer Android, however there should not be a switch. If there was no competition, we all know Android would not be half as good as it is today. Competition Is a great thing. And if it brings us the consumers the very best, why not support it? :)

I like Nokia and have always felt that Nokia should have sold Windows and Android smart phones. just like HTC and Samsung does. It appears however that Nokia could not afford to make both smart phones and chose to make Windows smart phones because Nokia
wanted to make a unique smart phone. Everybody was selling Android smart phones so if they made Android smart phones they would be competing with everybody and would sell less smart phones. I am a windows smart phone Fan and will buy Nokia Windows ssmart phones and will benefit from it. Windows smart phones have the most powerful OS now because Windows phone 8 uses the world renown "NT" kernel. Windows 7 uses the NT kernel. Apps makers can really make some outstanding apps for Windows Phone 8
because of this New NT Kernel.

I think Nokia could build for himself a new operating system that takes into consideration the whole world.

This article is such a crock its not even funny... You really had to attack the fact we cant put a wallpaper behind our live tiles? like you would even be able to see much of it...

My Lumia 920 is a beast. i dont need little icons with a glittery shiney wallpaper poking through... my phone is a tool, therefore all the information im shown on my live tiles allows me to see whats going on without having to click anything.

Because of said lack of wallpapers(and other reasons of course, like certified apps), my lumia 900 (single core last gen) DESTROYS samsung galaxy s3 phones in start up boots, or normal operating procedures...

you keep you shiny wallpapers, kid created apps, and all that garbage... I'll keep one of the fastest, more reliable phones out there

I will say no.Windows is making NOKIA different from SAMSUNG android phones and making it stand along with competing SAMSUNG , SONY , HTC mobile phones. Windows is providing fresh experience to its users and it is just only a start like android cupcake or gingerbread and will improve more rapidly . So we give chance to it

definately yes i'd like nokia with android os so i thnk nokia would increase their profit if they change 2 android Os. If possibly they could give us customers a choice by releasing both WP and Android

nokia should support everyone including us kids who hv interest in android features while in love with Nokia handsets so they could releasw both Os if they can. I love nokia and i also love android.

Or alternatively they could release phones with base os (saying their symbian for instance ) that will allow user to choose os between android nd wp to install over that base os

Folks, just leave Nokia alone. They're doing good right now. Don't let your Android lust f**k it up. Shoo! Go buy yourselves an LG nexus 4 and don't come back.

Nokia is the top dog in the WP8 arena. They are making good profit and gaining great publicity. In the Android arena they would be lost. They would not be able to compete with the likes of Samsung and they would not stand out. Android is saturated,with manufacturers all trying to outdo each other in the specs department and now we have the Chinese joining the party with big specs and low costs. Nokia have made the right decision to go with WP8

no stay with windows i think windows could come alive if they just get some real people working on the OS . And the tiles are not very good but that's just me and i don't like window 8 ether and i love window 7 i think were they going wrong is they want to be all things to ever one also to tie ever thing together nice and neat
