What If - Nokia had chosen Android? JB on the N9


Impressive, considering that many Android flagships haven't got JB, yet...

What If - Nokia had chosen Android?
An interesting question...12 months ago I'd have answered it with "they wouldn't be in trouble anymore", now, I'm not so sure. Samsung seem to be the only company who are making any kind of long term success from Android, independent of Google's money.

HTC have f*cked it up good and proper over the last two years (as soon as they had an actual competitor in the Android market; Samsung, their products were shown to be consistently worse). As for the other manufacturers, none of them were ever particularly successful with their Android devices, even with Google's money, Motorola still seem to be released average devices which get preferential treatment in the US.

So back to the original question, what if Nokia had chosen Android? In all honesty, I don't know, there are just too many variables to make any kind of justified decision.
