By now, you know that Nokia decided to side with Microsoft and Windows Phone 7 instead of Google and Android. Why didn't they want Android? Because Nokia felt that that would be going down without a fight.
When Nokia started crowdsourcing ideas for a new potential phone, I very much doubt they expected one of the key criteria named by partakers would be an "open source operating system with unlimited multitasking." Like...Android? Their fans want Android?
Swedish Finnish phonemaker's booth, I overheard a Nokia rep say that Nokia "will never release an Android handset." He added, "You can quote me on that," which is good, because I am!
