    I think he was just trolling. There's no way that Microsoft is actually working on getting Android apps to work on Windows phone, if that's even possible.

    In my opinion native dev's for Windows Phone have failed to innovate and create outstanding apps for the Windows Phone platform with in the last four years now. I believe now ( not always but just recent) that perhaps bringing android apps to Windows Phone is a good thing.

    Warren is a credible source. And most of the time he is right. I guess we have to wait and see what happens.

    I'm older and he just posted this comment. But the bigger question for me is, who is Tom Warren? I see his posts in this forum often and he is treated like he is some mega "insider".

    That is my take on him too. A S stirer too. Beyond that, I don't see MS going that route. Blackberry tried this and android apps run like crap on it. I know because I tried it on a Z10..

    Not iOS but Droid apps. Droids apps are open source and can run on any platform because they are made up in Java and are not limited to Google inc or any man made platform. Droid apps can run freely on any platform known to man. If Windows Phones allow Droids apps that will be awesome.

    The app Gap will close overnight. Believe it.

    Hopefully Warren is creditable.

    Just asking..
    Why not shift to some stock Android Phone and literally close the app gap overnight?
    If you're here for the UI and Nokia can try X2?
    Just asking why people want it here on a different platform? No offense. :)

    The gap might close, but think of all the issues that would come with it - the majority of the apps probably wouldn't fit the metro branding, there could be problems with paying for apps, since the Droid app marketplace probably doesn't work the same way as WP's; it could, like that person on the twitter screenshot said, bring malware; and etc.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. Right now I don't think it is the right move, I love the apps that are designed to take advantage of what makes WP unique. That being said I was a long time webOS user and if there was some way to get some android apps on there I would probably still be plugging away with a few of the less intensive ones on a Veer or Pre 3. Maybe down the road if WP fails to catch on I could see this being an OK option, though for now I'd much rather see effort put into native apps and hopefully as they start to do more universal apps that will help get and keep developers interested.

    Having Android apps would be nice, but the problem would be that it would make developers not even bother with a WP version if they might otherwise have done so. I guess that might work if live tiles could display the app's notifications it tries to send to the Android NC. It would probably be ugly but it might work.

    But why Android? Let's get the iOS ones. Those are even better.

    You see. I'm old school and computing was at is best when Google and MSFT and Java (Sun) were one many moons ago.

    Huh?

    Now they are three separate entities and a new competitor was born.

    Oops Apple.

    Before Apple. Google, MSFT and Java ruled the computing world. And they still do. But they are now weak and became three separate entries.

    Thus Apple became strong and dominant in computing.

    But I assure if Google, MSFT and Sun rejoin forces. Apple will be wipe of the face of the earth in computing.

    Thus Android apps on Windows Phones will be revolutionary again.

    Lol

    This is big. And if it happens this could be the next big thing.

    I agree. My question is if the new mission post Balmer is for MS is to bum rush android apps, why won't they simply say that so we could make a move? I would much rather be here and will fight like hell to stay. But its the seemingly dishonest way MS is going about things that troubles me. That is, if that is what they are planning.

    Agree. But that would only be Android. Correct?

    But Android on Windows Phones will be Google, Sun and MSFT as one again. Correct?

    The concept with colliding Android with Windows Phone is a breakthrough.

    Awesome if it ever happens.

    Do you remember Windows when Sun, Google, and MSFT were one?

    Application when released they were flawless. I believe if they re join forces as one again the apps for the mobile world likewise will be flawless.

    he's been wrong before, but Daniel quickly pointed out that his info was not correct at that time.

    This time around though, I don't see anyone credible to jump out and say this is flat out false so there might be some truth in it or it's being considered at the moment.

    The apps would be purchased through the "X store" that the Nokia X/XL phones use. You know, the phones that Microsoft released in those "emerging markets" with the AOSP fork that's skinned to look similar to Windows Phone 8..
