Submission + - Nokia had an Android phone in Development (nytimes.com)

puddingebola writes: Perhaps influencing Microsoft's $7.2 billion acquisition, the New York Times is reporting that Nokia had an Android phone in development. From the article, "A team within Nokia had Android up and running on the company’s 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. Microsoft executives were aware of the existence of the project, these people said." Perhaps Nokia feared they had put too many eggs in one basket? Whatever the case, the project is most likely dead at this point.
