    Google will never collaborate with Microsoft. They hate so much Microsoft that they don't have plans to develop apps for.

    Forget it. If this happens it will occur completely without Google's consent or cooperation.

    Google and Microsoft become too much of competitors over the past years, they won't suddenly cooperate on anything. Microsoft really pushed their web searches and renewed their mail services, Google now owns much of the mobile devices market, invades netbook presence with their Chrome OS, took a big chunk of browser market share with Chrome and keeps on pushing on several other areas.

    As of today I'd say Google is, after all, better positioned for the future compared to Microsoft.

    However Android is not only Google. As already said Amazon is also using an Android fork, although it doesn't really have anything to do with Google. Another example would be the recently released Blackphone, which also bases on Android, although they exclude all Google stuff.

    Google and MS have always been rivals. Google was practically setup from the start specifically to compete with MS.

    If you are talking about the rumour being spread by Eldar Murtazin, then that confirms nothing. He'd say Apple is building WP devices if it gets him attention. He might be right by mistake every once in a while, but that is about it.

    I agree with a5cent. Tom warren tweeted that there's a lot of fake information floating around. He didn't refer to anything in particular, but android apps on wp is ridiculous.

    Android is not Google...sure it might be a google product but its open source.
    As for the collaborations, for now its just a rumor & I really hope it just stays that way....for if it does happen I'd just throw away my phone & stick to landline cause I can't afford an iPhone & I hate android.

    Highly doubtful.
    MSFT aren't members of the Open Handset Alliance; plus, to have the Play Store, you have to take all of Google's apps.

    not true,googles android popularity is decreasing in favour of AOSP,ios ,WP and other upcoming OS
    chrome OS is a joke,seriously
    theres a free version of 8.1 which will be released soon apparently for netbooks etc
    microsoft and nokia may not be as popular as it was before but they are still giants and are regaining marketshare

    actually google will never learn, they made MS remove MS's own youtube app from the WP store stating it lacked ads and other bs
    MS develops for all platforms

    Not another post on this topic lol... until it's confirmed by the guys here at WPcentral I'd say its a hoax.

    Furthermore evleaks has not always been 100% correct :P, recent example is that according to Mary Jo Foley's sources Metro office is delayed until 2015 ergo that is probably when the surface mini will launch (if the rumours that it was pulled last minute because it lacked differentiation are anything to go by).

    My hunch is that it is probably true and metro office will probably launch with Windows 9 or Threshold alongside the surface mini.
