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?

Because at the time Nokia was going full steam ahead with Meego. It was almost at a working stage. Then came Elop and bam!
Meego lives on in the Mer project, on which Sailfish is based.

How many units has sailfish sold? Because Nokia has shipped like 12-13 Windows Phones and sold like 20 million units since.

About 3 to 1 in the N9's favour. Meego's would have been immensely more popular and successful. Nokia's CEO is an idiot, end of discussion.
