    I agree with most comments on this page and I'd argue that cyan is rather blue. Android is green ;-)

    Eh. Nokia X stuff.

    Sounds like the Nokia "Android" has come to be a success.

    It's Nokia X stuff. That shade of green is what's used for Nokia X ads etc.

    But could also be the green version of the Lumia 1520 which Elop showed at //Build. Combinded with WP8.1 and Cyan.

    I agree, it's likely a new Nokia X(2?) announcement.
    Green != Cyan; (WP8.1 is codenamed "Blue" AFAIK, so Green != Blue).

    Doesn't Microsoft feel dirty releasing Android phones?

    Why would they? They're earning more from Android phones than from their own mobile OS. ;)

    Yup.. Patent fees, royalties.. Something along those lines. Not kidding, just do some research. ;)

    Take a look at these reports:

    That's their goal with the Nokia X series, yup. I know. Doesn't change a thing about the fact, that Microsoft earns a fortune on every Android device sold.

    This looks more like a new MM X2 than the cyan update, but I hope they release 8.1 and Cyan on the 24th. (please AT&T!)

    He is correct. I believe the estimate is something like a billion dollars annually from patent royalties on Android devices. Windows Phone doesn't make that kind of revenue yet, and even if it did not all of it would be profit since it's expensive to actively develop a new product. On the other hand, the Android patents are mostly based on technology that MS developed years ago and they don't have marketing or support expenses for Android.

    Launcher Z is not from Microsoft .. It is from the branch of Nokia that was never bought by Microsoft
