Did Nokia Run Android On Its Lumia Phones Before Microsoft Acquisition?

 



According to reports from Ny Times Nokia Had Android Os Operating on one of its lumia smartphone and was actually planning a permanent switch to android in 2014 before microsoft began talks about the purchase of nokia..

On one level, Nokia’s Android effort is not shocking. Companies often have “plan Bs” in the works in case they need to change course on strategy or want to help negotiate better terms with partners. Getting Android to run on Nokia’s hardware was not a Herculean engineering effort, according to the people familiar with the project.
Still, a functioning Nokia Android phone could have served as a powerful prop in Nokia’s dealings with Microsoft, a tangible reminder that Nokia could move away from Microsoft’s Windows Phone software and use the Android operating system, which powers more than three out of every four smartphones sold globally.
