    The success of the HTC One is showing that is posible to make money with Android despite the Samsung domination. Unless Microsoft bring something really good for Windows Phone next year, I predict a Nokia phone running Android before the end of 2014.

    Uhm... what? What is your measure of success? You might want to look into what Nokia is getting from MS in return for their exclusivity, and compare that to how much better you THINK they might do selling Android. Here's a hint: no they wouldn't be doing better.

    Just skimming your posts, it doesn't appear you are a fan of WP...

    I have to wonder too if Nokia won't start producing Android phones sometime in the near future. The Android market is already crowded, but if Nokia took just 5% of the Android market, that's approximately as many phones as the number of WP they're selling now.
    Current lineup: Nexus 5 (primary device), Lumia 920, Moto G, and Lumia 520. There, I did it; I updated my signature!

    I agree, I think it is possible for Nokia to have a great success on Android. It doesn't mean they have to abandon WP, but imagine all of those great reviews on Nokia phone's hardware and cameras, combined with the open possibilites of Android! I think it's at least worth a shot.

    The post below you nails it. Also if they go android they'll be paying Microsoft for the patent stealing. I think the boatloads of money they get from Microsoft will keep them exclusive to Windows Phone for quite a while.

    Lol, what are you talking about . Nokia has the highest number of mobile patents .If nokia goes android , then they will start to sue all the windows phone OEM'S(assuming that there will be any left). Microsoft pays nokia around 250 million dollars , which is less than the royalty that nokia pays to microsoft

    I'm talking about how all android oem's have to pay Microsoft for patents. Duh.

    The deal that Microsoft has with Nokia, $250 million per quarter since 2011, is over or coming to an end?

    Nokia CEO himself said they don't plan on making Android phones (not anytime soon at least)!

    But it's nice to see Android fans wanting Nokia.

    Nope sorry, i've heard too many people at phone stores telling me this, and it annoys the hell out of me.

    Nokia will never go to Android.

    Info on that is sketchy. Nothing official. Most financial websites claim a duration of five years.

    If the sales of lumia handsets increase drastically in q2 and q3 , then nokia wont create android handsets . Otherwise Elop will be fired and nokia will finally adopt android

    Nokia will be going Android or not. It is still a question for the future. However, for now Android fans just have to drool over the sexy Nokia design with WP OS. Go back to where you are. We will call you when Nokia goes Android.

    I understand that you want Nokia to produce android phones. But right now. If they do android phones. That would mean they would have to pay MS for patent fees. Like every other OEM. If they stay WP they will get paid by MS instead of paying MS for patent fees and also loosing money in the long term. LG Sony Htc are an example

    I've emailed high-rank employees of Nokia (those who directly know Stephen Elop) and the reason they will never go Android is that the hardware is always changing, and no matter how many cores or how many gigs of ram you have, you will have this thing non-existent on Windows Phone. I heard its called "Lag". I've a friend who has a Galaxy S4 Octa and he installed like 40 apps and when he swipes to the left, it reacts like 2 seconds later and when he was browsing androidcentral for about 10 minutes, his battery percentage dropped by 30%. App support for Android is limited. Android has viruses. Android has no security. Android's apps are not checked. MANY fake apps. The list just goes. OSes like iOS don't have that and runs smooth as silk. Windows Phone is a second.

    While I agree with some of your points, I guarantee no high-ranking Nokia exec told them to you.

    I read the other day that MSFT gives Nokia 1 BILLION dollars a year to make WP phones. They're not going anywhere.

    I had a few jitters when I woke up today morning to read about the possibility of Huawei buying NOkia. I mean FTW Huawei, I don't want anybody to touch Nokia.

    Ohh.. how the tables have turned, a few years back Nokia would have bought 2 Huawei sized companies.

    I think these Android trolls that want Nokia to make Android phones are really more worried about the traction Nokia is starting to make with WP.
