People around the globe seem to be using Windows devices that are manufactured by Nokia. Currently , on all Lumia devices there is the Windows OS that is seen and I have been approached with issues such as hanging and sudden power-off of the devices. Keeping all calm , Windows is good in it’s own way and Google’s Android is good in an another but just so that you know that before Microsoft reached a deal to buy Nokia’s phone business, there was a possibility that Nokia could have switched its smartphones to Google’s Android operating system sometime this nest year in 2014. Looking above at the image and the image available on source , the Android OS on the Lumia devices looks truly fantastic.

I presume that it would be working even better taking into consideration the processors of the Lumia handsets. On the inside , a team within Nokia got the Android OS running on some of the Lumia handsets well before Microsoft and Nokia began negotiating Microsoft’s $7.2 billion acquisition of Nokia’s mobile phone and services business. according to two people briefed on the effort who declined to be identified because the project was confidential.

This was not done under a quiet because some executives were aware of this project. One person on the inside said the idea of Nokia using Android was not a part of Microsoft’s discussions with the company about an acquisition even though that was recognized as a possibility over a wide area.

To catch up on more news about the inside comments and discussions , you could get in touch with us on Facebook , Twitter or even post your query below in the form of a comment below.
