PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A perennial question that revolves around Nokia is: why didn't it choose to go with Android to replace Symbian when it decided to kill that as its smartphone operating system in late 2010?

Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

If windows phone takes off HTC and Samsung can also join the game. Samsung ATIV yes samsung the company Nokia worried about dominating Android also makes Windows phones.

So if you don't want to go head to head with Samsung on the same OS you have to do what Apple and Blackberry does. Make a completely unique OS.

Nokia should have made a few Android Phones. Profited while they could like HTC has.

Nokia brand was strong. A Nokia Android phone would still sell well today due to how well know the brand is.

So Nokia kicked themselves in teeth by being stupid.
