    There was another thread that was highlighted with basically the same question a month or so ago...

    Same answer.

    Frak, no

    Absolutely, every tech press writer states about Microsoft's lack of presence in the mobile market, MS cannot rely on Android continuing to allow Microsoft apps in the store, by forking a windows android/device they solve both these issues even if its a short term solution.
    If MS made a device free from the google services, I would definitely be interested.

    I've never used a Windows phone, so I have no nostalgia for it. Android (& before, Palm) is all I've ever known. But I've really started to like Win 10, and how it interacts with OneDrive, and as a result, I've found myself exploring the Microsoft Android apps and have discovered that I like them very much and am using them pretty much exclusively except for Cortana. Cortana is fine on my desktop as a driver for Bing search. But as an assistant, it can't hold a candle to Google.

    What would the point be for a Microsoft Windows phone? What would it offer Microsoft that me loading all those MS apps on my Motorola doesn't provide them? I just can't see what MS would get out of such a move.

    Do you think Microsoft will release an Android phone?
    Yes. I thought that before windows mobile. There was not room for a third OS.

    No, because it's pointless. The Android phone market is already overcrowded. If they thought sales of Windows Phones were too low, sales of an Android phone would make Windows phone sales look massive in comparison.

    Hell no, it makes no sense to do it, and frankly Microsoft has lost all tracks regarding mobile platforms.

    If it happens then it could like Microsoft going to bend it's knees to Google. I hope it shouldn't happen.

    Hell no. Why should they? What is going to be so different from any other Android phone available? It'll be easier and cheaper to just pay phone manufacturers to pre install their apps as default on their phones.

    So basically they should release a Samsung Galaxy but with MS logo plastered on it? Makes sense.

    They did. It was called Windows Phone. And it failed.

    You are contradicting yourself. Saying NO to start, then saying to have a device running Android would be TOTALLY AWESOME!
