    Wow. Now if only they would've opened up the Windows ecosystem to App support. Or probably supported MeeGo and they would've had a much better outlook.

    Having Lumia/Mobile devices for them is like putting a spoiler on the rear trunk of a front wheel drive car. It makes them look good, but serves no purpose. Not anymore.

    Nokia was doomed the minute I leaned on M$, think of mighty giant on it's knees.

    I said it then too, they should have gone the Android route. Don't know what monkeys are running these companies.

    Apparently, someone found a way of running Android apps on Windows 10. I sincerely hope they wake up and make Android apk support available in Windows 10.

    I really like the concept of Nokia X and XL, they should have persisted with it. In any case, Nokia plans to have some Android devices in the market in 2016.

    That I would buy. I managed to brick my Nokia X2, trying to load a custom ROM. To recover it, i loaded from back up. Now I have a hybrid device that runs both Play store and Nokia's opera store. Lol

    Looks like they'll be working closely with Foxconn; that si good news as Foxconn have a history of producing good devices like iPhones and Xiaomi phones.
