Won't happen. Nokia will fail if they make high end Android (Google) devices.

if they can get some market back by introducing affordable ones 1st, i don't see why they won't. i'd trade my nexus for one in a heartbeat if they made a high end phone.

Maybe so, maybe not... It depends on which region you're talking about.. In the US? Maybe not... In Spain, or elsewhere? This device would most likely succeed.. That's probably the only reason why MS would allow this... IOW, it's no potential threat to WP,,,, yet.

I don't think Nokia would make a high end Android phone.

Nokia will not fail, there are billions of fans out there. And all those billion fans waiting to buy nokia android. It's positive thing because right now those fans don't have choice to buy Nokia because it has wp and they all buying android because symbian similarity.

Nope, it won't. C'mon, lets be rational, 150m is an insane amount, 20m at most. Nokia has earned a not so good reputation these past few years. And are you f_kin' kidding me, 1b fans. I think you've confused Nokia for The Beatles. Thats 1 in 7 people. Wake up bro!

Androids on Nokia highend phones will make Wp8 in bankruptcy. There are millions of loyal Nokia fans waiting for a Nokia Android or Nexus Android. . your beloved Wp will die.

How much Android have you smoked before commenting this sh*t?

Had my Lumia 920 not been Windows I wouldn't have ditched it in 3 days. Nokia designs and innovation are way above any of Apple/Samsung/LG or any such #$%^. Had Nokia been sensible and gone with Android instead of Windows, none of Apple or Samsung would have been even closer to them in sales!

Had my Lumia been running Android OS I would have ditched it in a minute.

Same here. My Lumia 520 would lag as hell if it ran Android.

Do not blindly clinge onto sarcasm. Lags on Android phones are prevalent no doubt but that also goes to say what each OEMs do to the stock android and lay a heavy ton of customizations on the phone. I own a Nexus 4 and it runs extremely smooth. The MOTO G if someone might have heard with moderate hardware is one of the smoothest sailing phones on Android compared to the beastly spec'd smartphones from Samsung / LG / HTC or any out there. Nokia has always been the brand who measures usability / performance & build quality above specifications and hardware components. @Liveitup: FYI I owned a Windows phone and let me tell you it was super smooth but without any good apps. Even Whatsapp (the universally accepted super messenger) was the most buggiest app in Windows. Leave aside the UI of Whatsapp which always dragged me off Windows. There are tons of other such apps with similar problems. Bottom line is there is no OS in the world bigger than the apps it has to offer.

Agree with your last paragraph. If you use a high end WP now, you'll find most of your fav apps on it, since most of the popular apps are available in the store. :)

Never had a problem with whatsapp, i prefer its UI over the one on the droid. Actually now that i think of it, of my 90 apps or so, only one likes to crash and that is 9gag. Maybe i just dont use the apps every two seconds like i see other socialites do. And yes i would have not looked at nokia if it ran android.

I've been enjoying high end nokias for a good bit of time.

Nokia will make high end android for sure.

probably not, because the x was probably already 90% done ms allowed it to finish. But now that MS holds the devices division with patents to go. Nokia will not be competitive. But even if they do it's a win for MS, what is it 25$ or so of every droid device sold goes to MS or something like that.

Nokia and wp8 looks like they are made for each other...loke apple for ios.....lets see what android bring, but my thoughts are that they will only replace asha software with forked android, the leaked ui also suggest the same ui as that of asha....so nokia won't make high end android devices according to me, plus all hardware tweaks are with MS

No Google services, no thanks. Too much music in the cloud that I stream with Google Music, it's one of the most used apps on my phone.

I tried google music a few times and it didn't fit my needs.
