Motorola DROID helped Android take off in 2009. Android 2.0 was installed on that phone and the green robot never looked back. Now comes the important part for Nokia which is making sure that enough product does become available in a timely fashion before phone buyers give up and start looking elsewhere.
It is a similar problem to what is happening with the Google Nexus 4, which is back in stock today at T-Mobile and the Google Play Store. The only difference is that Android has already proven itself and there is no pressure. Windows Phone 8, on the other hand, is trying to claw its way up and make a name for itself in a very competitive industry and Nokia itself cannot afford to lose these potential sales. For now though, this is a marvelous sign for Microsoft and its Finnish partner.
