This is not what I meant.
When I said I wanted a android nokia I meant I wanted an android nokia not a micro managed android nokia by microsoft.

Android on Nokia
Android on Nokia phones does sound interesting. However there are a couple of things that might put off the users. Nokia X series would not have access to Google Play store. The reason for rise of any device or application (It is said Whatsapp became popular because of the simplicity of using it) is the ease with which it can be used. Downloading apk files and such to get android applications sounds a bit of work as compared to the much easier single tap to install on traditional android phones. All in all there will still be adventurists who would like to try the new "Windroid". Time will tell if this works for Nokia.
