Nokia Releasing First Android Phone

Their Windows phone are of such quality...

That being said, it would be a smart move, business-wise. But at the same time, it's like they would admit defeat. Their Windows OS may not be the most popular of all, but it's an excellent OS and I don't think they should call it quit just yet. But if they'd go Android, that certainly wouldn't help WP get more traction.

I for one won't be switching back to Android any time soon. I'll stick to Nokia when I upgrade to a better phone later this year. They make some of the best units on the market.

But this N8 uses Symbian....



Its gonna be terrible if what the rumours say is true since the specs is: the Nokia X will sport 4-inch display (480 x 854 pixels), 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, dual-SIM, a 512MB RAM, 4GB storage, 5MP camera and run a heavily customized version of Android 4.4 KitKat.

I love my Samsung Galaxy S4 and I can't go back to iphone after going Android just cause how much more you can customize everything and just how much more variety the phones and the OS is compared to iphone, but with that being said, Android is also a hard competing market led by Samsung and Google in and the companies and its hard to compete with then, Specially Samsung and with those specs, I don't see this being successful at all even on the low end market...

Those are quite terrible specs indeed. So it's gonna be a cheap smartphone? I remember that Lumia 520 sold quite well so there is a market for these kind of phones.

Without the Google services and Play store... its a dead product.

Amazon's massive market presence is only barely able to keep up with a similar approach.

This can work in Microkia's favor in 2 ways:

1. They can compete against other low end Android phones, but with a hacked version that runs M$ services instead of Google's. Cheap phones for the masses. People like it. M$ wins

2. Since the phones will be in similar specs to other low end WPs. The Android OS might run like shit and make people hate it and wonder how a low spec phone can run WP OS snappy, but it runs like shit with Android. People might switch out for a WP. M$ wins.

Their Windows phones don't appeal to hipsters enough. Not even the cheap ones.



Not even proper Android, it's more of a hybrid between WP8 and Android. Could be an interesting development. I wanted a Nokia phone next anyway.

 

This is all rumours still so we'll see



Xbox One, PS4 and Switch (+ Many Retro Consoles)

Prediction: Switch will sell better than Wii U Lifetime Sales by Jan 1st 2018

If Microsoft already get billions from Android and are still making losses on Windows phones that shows you how terrible they are doing. Microsoft seem to be heading to a cliff at breakneck speed right now with their business. It's held up by their core software but every part of their business is under attack by changing markets. They will forever be playing catch up now as they have never innovated anything.
I predict it wont be long before they are forced to sell xbox brand, windows OS will be free and windows phone/tablets are either sold or just stopped. Tough times ahead for this company no matter what their revenue/profits are right now

Bill Gates had Mac prototypes to work from, and he was known to be obsessed with trying to make Windows as good as SAND (Steve's Amazing New Device), as a Microsoft exec named it. It was the Mac that Microsoft took for its blueprint on how to make a GUI.
