Choice is great, just like because of choice, my default web browser is so capable, I am not locked into a particular OS because of an app... I can play dirrectly from the web browser, my google music collection. Without being tied to android.

No Google services makes the switch from Windows Phone to Android absolutely useless. The main issue is not Windows here, but their disgusting app store. So whats the point? lol.

I quite like the app store actually. I also prefer Xbox music to google music

Do you work for Nokia? The point of Android is the freedom to do what you want, that's half of the reason people avoid Apple. All the free software is awesome so if we don't have the play store and Google apps and are forced to use expensive MS software then it's just not going to cut it. It'll only really be success if they if they give people what they want. Better than nothing but why can't they just give us stock Android. I guess if they hardware is good we'll all just have to flash CM or something on it. Maybe i'm just bitter from buying MS Project for $480 today, what a joke, you can buy a computer for that, all for some software that I use a couple hours a month.

Yes I work directly from Nokia ;) no I don't work at Nokia but I love Nokia, m$ and WP. Matter of fact I've been replacing all my android hardware little by little with windows and couldn't be happier. Last android thing I have is an old Asus and a new nexus 7.

Do you work for Google? He is voicing his opinion on what services he likes. Why are you trying to lead him into purchasing an Android phone?

I find many Android fans feel like it's their job to make sure everyone realizes the phone they have is garbage unless it has the one true OS of which is Android...maybe some of them should be Evangelists.

Understand Microsoft softwares are still selling at rip off prices.

This strikes me as something that was never meant to be an upgrade to any other Android device, or to any Windows Phone device. this is strictly a replacement for Series 40... for Series 40 Asha users, this WILL be an upgrade. This is meant only to drive the move from feature phones to smartphones in the emerging markets, but I fear that the pricing could still have been better.

512mb of Ram? Thats really really low even for a low end android device. We will see how it runs with Kit Kat, but it should really be priced at around $50-$80. Sounds like an Android Version of the Lumia 520.

Or maybe it signifies that they are part of Microsoft? Has no one thought of that?

The "they" I'm referring to is Nokia. I highly doubt this change has anything to do with Android

It's good nokia is going with android aswell... but they are gonna fail if they go with a forked version. Android os without android apps and games is gonna be bad.
