Surprise… Android on a Nokia Phone

What do we have here, a new beginning, Nokia finally getting with the times, or did someone just get fired because they didn't photoshop the right image on a Nokia phone. We don't know which but we just had to post this little mistake up for the world to see. What we have here is an advertisement at a Orange store showing Deezer on a Nokia phone. Somehow they accidentally threw in a little Android love.

Android sails past BlackBerry to become the number one smartphone platform

Like watching a semi rumble past from the side of the road, Android has sailed past BlackBerry to become the number on smartphone platform in terms of market share. Nearly one third (31.2%) of US Smart phones now run the Google operating system, while only 30.4% of smartphones ran on BlackBerry during the same period from February 2010 to January 2011. Apple's share of the smartphone pie has remained rather flat during the time, while Microsoft's market share was cut nearly in half, even after the debut of Windows Phone 7. The rise of the Android's platform has occurred in just over two years and can largely be due to Google's open source philosophy which has been adopted by a wide range of smartphone manufactures, but really hit it's stride after Motorola released the Droid in 2009.

Microsoft to pay Nokia $1 billion for Windows Phone 7 handsets

When the news broke that Nokia had entered an alliance with Microsoft to make Windows Phone 7 handsets exclusively, everyone thought it was a headslap moment. Now the word is out as to what Microsoft had to do to sweeten the deal. Microsoft will pay Nokia more than $1 Billion to promote and develop Windows Phone 7 handsets. In return, Nokia will rebate back a fee to Redmond for every copy of Windows used on it's phones. The $1 Billion dollar payment was designed to not only keep Nokia from jumping on the Android bandwagon, but will also help to offset the amount lost by Nokia to focus exclusively on the Windows Phone 7 platform.

Intel says Nokia should have gone with Android

Intel CEO Paul Otellini doesn't think Nokia made the right choice when it came to going with Windows Phone over Android. It's an odd statement from Otellini considering that Nokia and Intel were working together on MeeGo and the move to Windows Phone means that its own MeeGo OS is going by the wayside too.

Nokia Partners with Android Too, So Says Eldar Murtazin

If you're unfamiliar with who Eldar Murtazin is, first and foremost, he is the editor-in-chief Analyst and manager of Mobile-Review.com, and a very well read and followed fellow. What he's got to say is in regards to this mornings news about Nokia teaming up with Microsoft for a Windows Phone 7 handshake heard around the world. As this was occuring, Murtazin was hearing from his inside sources that not only had Nokia made a deal with Microsoft, they'd cut a deal with Google as well at essentially the same time.

Nokia passes on Android because there “are too many players”

Nokia's new CEO and former Microsoft man Stephen Elop has been blunt with workers when he says that the company is standing on a burning platform with regards to MeeGo. All the blunt talk about how poorly Nokia is performing had me hoping that the company would turn to an interesting OS like Android for its smartphones.

Powerful Nokia OMAP4 Android Device Possibly in the Works

Take a look, if you'd like, at the portal -lxr.free-electrons.com for a Linux file automatically generated from the OMAP hardware databases, one with some spicy previews for what's to come early this year. In the first few lines you'll notice some lovely bits that could add up to a spicy new device from two of the biggest names in tech: Texas Instruments and Nokia. A device with an OMAP4 processor - is this the same processor announced back in December 2010 by TI, one with dual-core, 1.5GHz, support for 1080p video playback and conferencing, gesture recognition, two 12 megapixel cameras, and more? I'd bank on yes.

Samsung Aims for Number 1 Spot in Mobile, Decides to Replace Nokia in 3 Very Short Years

That's rather presumptuous of them, yes? Not if they've got the phones to back up their hopes and dreams it isn't. Nokia currently holds the top spot for mobile phone manufacturer in the world, but Samsung officials have said that their next 12 months will be very important since they're aiming to outpace Nokia in three years time. The Korea Times reports that Samsung intends to have smartphones and other "premium products" account for over half of its mobile phone production targets in the future - can you say Android?

Nokia name-checked as Android Honeycomb tablet producer

A casual name-drop in a report on Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets has led to suggestions that Nokia is working with Google on an Android device. DigiTimes claims Google has been giving priority to brand-name handset manufacturers with support for the tablet-centric Honeycomb release, bypassing notebook makers in the process, but Nokia is in among the list of "smartphone players" supposedly working with the search giant. It's most likely an oversight by DigiTimes' writers, but the remaining players on the list - Motorola, Samsung, LG and HTC - are all companies we've heard Android tablet rumors about in the past. A similar casual mention pre-holidays tipped Honeycomb for a March 2011 release; now the site is claiming some smartphone manufacturers could have slates running the platform out as early as the latter half of February next year.
