Do you think MS should have Nokia make Android phones?

I know they're trying to push their OS, but I think Android Nokia phones could be very popular and profitable. I doubt it will happen, sadly.

Share your thoughts.

Too many phones.

Last I heard, Windows phone 7 apps don't work in Windows 8.


If true, do developers really have any confidence in Microsoft? I know I wouldn't develop for Win8 with MS's track record.

What are the odds Windows 8 apps won't work in Windows 9? Or Windows 10?

Where do you come up with these ideas?

It's outlandish. You need a tinfoil hat.

I don't believe that is correct.

Edit: Do you mean Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8? If Windows 8, then yes, Windows Phone 7 apps won't work. If you mean Windows Phone 8, then no, for the most part Windows Phone 7 apps wail work.
