    Is Nokia going completely android once their devices division is completely bought out?
    What does this mean for the 90% of WP's that are nokias? Will they be Microsoft Lumias, or still Nokia?
    Will Nokia make another devices division and sell android phones exclusively?
    I'm slightly confused about Nokia current events lol

    What are you being paranoid about?
    It's 1 (one) Android phone. That's it.
    No "Nokia will abandon WP" or "Nokia, Android exclusive".

    Samsung and HTC also make WP phones and no Android fan is paniking about them to stop making Android phones.

    Well Microsoft is going take ownership and the Nokia brand will disappear next year and you will see only Microsoft instead of Nokia in mobile phone.

    True, but it seems like true Nokia WPs are gonna disappear entirely. I don't care if Nokia makes android handsets but if Microsoft makes 90% of WPs then there's no telling whether the build quality will increase or diminish IMO and that makes me slightly worried. I think MS software married with Nokia's handsets is the best pairing ever (hence why MS bought em out).
    Hard/software integration could be better under one corporate roof but MS has messed up hardware a few times in the past. So, the worst possible outcome (imo) and what I'm worried about is if the WP hardware suffers hurting WP's rep and product enjoyment and Nokia is out of the game.
    It'll probably be all good but I'd hate to see WP take a possible hit in the future.

    Microsoft's takeover still hasn't been approved (waiting on China) so they are still going ahead with their original plans. If the deal falls through then Nokia can continue with this strategy otherwise Microsoft then owns all Nokia phones including this Android one and can continue it or kill it.

    I still don't see the problem. When the deal gets approved and Nokia becomes part of MS, why would the quality of the handsets suffer? MS would work against itself and risk making losses in marketshare.
    Google bought the mobile department of Motorola and the handsets (Moto G & X) are IMO better than the Defy & so on (okay, they sold it in the end but hey, at least 2 great devices).

    So if anything, I think the MS phones will be even better (MS software + Nokia hardware + working closer together).
    Having the OEM in your own house makes it a lot easier (see Apple and iPhones and the counterpart Google and lots and lots and lots of different OEMs).
    I think MS phones will be like Google's Nexus series: premium built quality and first to get updates).
