    There was a statement from a Microsoft Employee Jerry Berg (Senior Software Development Engineer) about something "pretty amazing" for WP and that it would "upset the entire world across everything" Also mentioned was something like "what, we can do that"
    Hmmm, this evleaks rumor do correlate to Jerry Berg's statement.

    Did anyone notice that there is no news article from the editors here in wpcentral. This makes me believe that there is a possibility this news might be a hoax.

    For those who think everything that comes out of evleaks's site is true, check out his earlier tweets. He was given wrong info twice in the last week, one by a 14 year old posing as a Google engineer. So this might even turn out to be a hoax.

    This was a paid test by Microsoft to evleaks to see what the reaction would be of an Android Lumia phone. Looks like its not going over to well....

    Personally I feel like Microsoft is taking Windows Phone less and less seriously. Well, actually they never really took it seriously in the first place. Windows Phone 7 always felt like a side-project, and when we all thought it would be different with Windows Phone 8, things like the X2 happened. This here would be just another step in the same direction.

    All of this could be interpreted as Microsoft abandoning Windows Phone slowly.

    However all I said is that these news are not good in any case as it worries the loyal customers. And if it's true it's really, really bad. Because it makes the "fanboys" cry.
    Lumia and X series are made and treated independently. Well, they are obviously related in terms of strategy, but it should not affect the consumer.
    Again, MS is NOT abandoning WP, and we've heard a lot about new GDRs upcoming soon (as well as Threshold Q2 '15). So MS actually has very big plans regarding the Lumia WP.
    In my understanding, Microsoft requires Android OS (or AOSP, whatever) to create a bridge between the Android phones/iPhones and WP, because they are very different. I remember first time when I was looking at a Windows Phone, my first reaction was "Wha...?", but this OS was slowly and surely capturing my attention (probably the fanboys affected my decision, not excluded).
    So, IMO, in terms of global strategy:
    1st. Lumia WP
    2nd. (Lumia) Android.

    Well, he did apologise for that. I don't think it's in his own interest to spread false rumours.

    your post makes around 100 people on wpcentral that don't like it so far.

    the number of devices that might be sold with android on a Nokia/microsoft device is much higher in numbers given the current markets decisions of which phone is to use.

    sounds like they're making a business decision, not an emotional one.

    Thought I would face this situation. I should have added this in my last comment:
    By posting that I didn't mean he posts fake rumors and I mean no disrespect for him. He being at the top, will surely encounter such 'testers' along his way who will try such things. What I meant was, I hoped this would be one such news

    From what I read around the internet; MSFT mainly cares about their services. That's why there's a Nokia X2. They'll probably put Android on Lumia; sell many more devices due to Nokia quality hardware and brand name, and they'll achieve their goal (spreading their services even further). Maybe they'll make an Android launcher based on tiles instead of a complete OS, too.

    If this rumor proved to be true; this is the path I'll follow. If not, however, I'll stay with WP while having an iPod touch to compensate for the apps. Personally, I believe that all competing companies are being inspired by WP/ MSFT/ the whole ecosystem. I mean, MSFT was the first company to aim for a unified ecosystem. WP introduced flat design which is clearly shown in the newest versions of iOS and Android. Some features in WP are so excellent; as the keyboard, HERE maps, etc. WP has potential if 1) MSFT creatively worked on it and 2) apps got better (because apps ARE there, almost, yet they are buggy).

    Just my two cents.

    Last night for the first time in years I felt nauseous and now I know why...

    Those of you who are thinking this is a "wise" business decision, it is not since it will not only eat into windows phone sales as devs can simply write two apps and target a large user base thus saving money on not hiring a windows phone dev / spending to develop for windows phone. Second of all for the average Joe there wont be any reason for them to switch from Android any more or get a windows phone as their first smartphone since they will be able to get MS services on a android device from MS and not worry about the "app gap". Thirdly this is a huge middle finger to the OEMs who have spent money developing a new windows phone and getting that to market as it literally shows that MS has lost faith in its own o/s. In addition to this, the enterprises and corporations who have just rolled out windows phone will be left wondering where they will stand in the future in terms of devices and support.

    So yeah, the ramifications of this U turn is humongous and a disaster for Windows Phone as a whole.

    As a long time advocate, I'm left wondering where does an android lumia fit in with the "one Microsoft" goal (unless they have managed to get Android to run on the NT kernel?).

    For Microsoft itself, who will trust them in the future. They're going to be seen as almost as bad as BlackBerry now, and this might hurt Nokia's attempts at phones in future. It's an aall-round mess

    Trojan Horse (Elop) and MS finished Nokia with their Windows Phone OS, that was a part of their big plan. Now when they acquired Nokia and all their patents they've got a pole position to fight with others. Quality of Nokia devices/ brand + Android aboard. This is "the big thing that will upset everyone" - New (Mobile devices) World Order.. I'm sure Illuminati are into it too...

    Lol, but I'm especially oissed because last night one Microsoft product (Windows 8) bsod'd shd destroyed another Microsoft product (Lumia) in an attempt to fix a problem caused by another Microsoft product (XBM).
    If MS goes Android, WinPhans might overreact and actively AVOID ALL Microsoft products. I can smell the burning Xboxes and surfaces already

    Lol haha. The 620 was a good phone. Too bad it never had any successors. 625 and 630 are insults to the 620. No NFC, worse screen, less sensors.
