Few days ago we’ve told you that while Microsoft was mulling the Surface Phone, Nokia experimented with an Android device. And guess what – that project isn’t cancelled yet, according to this article at Unwired View.
The Finnish company’s “Plan B” codenamed “Mountain View” is/was a low-end phone that rocks Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 200 chip. Nokia’s Beijing-based R&D center did all the work and has even contracted Foxconn to make 10,000 prototype units. That’s quite a batch for something that shouldn’t be released and who knows, if things don’t go according to the plan – we may see an Android-based Lumia… though I doubt that will happen.
As I’m writing this — and since the board approved the deal — I see no reason why would anyone who actually owns a piece of Nokia would want to stop Microsoft from acquiring the company. Sure enough, Nokia employees may not like it and the same goes for Finland’s general public. Alas, these guys and gals don’t get to decide on these matter. ;(
It’s interesting to ponder nonetheless and we’re eager to know – would you go for an Android-based Nokia phone?
