Dumping Nokia Live Tiles for Android OS


Nokia should really consider a few different options, over the last few months we have come to understand that there are a few that do not like Nokia Live Tiles and this should be changed for the Android operating system, we can see Nokia using Android if Microsoft does not buy them out.

The Windows Phone is not getting a whole lot of love by the masses, yes there are thousands that like it but Android seems the better option and we believe this will turn Nokia’s sales around. It obviously seems a little too soon for the Nokia-Microsoft Acquisition so Nokia wanted to do something to stay strong in the mobile sector, so they decided to move its Symbian eggs to Windows by Microsoft and we cannot see this being beneficial to the Finnish company at all, was it the right move for Nokia to run Windows Phone OS?

Nokia was once the best handset providers of all time and now they are no where near what Apple and Samsung are achieving, the only way Nokia can redeem itself is by surely using the Android eco-system.

Nokia have some stunning smartphones on the market such as the Lumia 521, 925, 1020 etc, one of our readers recently said “Can you imagine if they were running Android instead of Windows with its horrible Tile setup. Nokia seems to have arrived at the crossroads where they have choices, Android is one of them.”

If Microsoft decided to pull out and not offer long-term support with Windows Phone then Nokia really should opt for Android, what happens if Microsoft decided not to meet Nokia’s price?

Nokia is falling when it comes to sales and profits, and if this continues Microsoft could be in with an opportunity to purchase Nokia for a low price, we would suggest Nokia moving from Windows in favor of Android as this would ramp up phone sales in no time at all, its smartphones are designed well, its just the OS that does not excite.

Nokia Android smartphones could end up being on the same level as HTC Android phones, it will take a long time for Nokia to catch up with Samsung even if they used Android OS instead of Windows but it is a start in moving up the growth path. How about Nokia releasing a new Android smartphone to ramp up the Christmas strategy? This would work in its favor of great sales.

Do you think Nokia should dump the Windows Tiles in favor of Android?

    Nokia absolutely should switch to android. My first phone was Nokia. I am currently and have for many years used Samsung. If Nokia switched to Android I may have to rethink that decision…

    Nokia Live Tiles?? Windows Tiles? You don’t even know what you’re talking about. Do your homework better. Just another Android fan jealous of Nokia’s recent buzz, calling himself a journalist. How succesfull would Nokia be switching to Android is not the point. The point is that it won’t. And frustrated people like you should stop being an ‘expert’ and respect it’s decisions. You don’t know better than they do.

    Seriously, let’s think about this for a moment.

    Why would Microsoft want to buy a company if it’s product wasn’t worth buying? And wouldn’t it be ironic if the product wasn’t worth buying because it ran Microsoft’s phone OS?

    Shut up man.. Windows phone is growing at a higher rate than android and the thing is it looks complex but windows os is the simplest among the three. Anyways its people like u who make up things like these and try to make nokia infamous. The live tiles are a unique and easy design. It always lokks better than android and is independent of android than the stupid android which lags at even the best hardware platforms. If u ever open ur eyes pls look at the complaint section of s3 and s4 so caled the best phones from samsung.

    How ?

    Surely the shareholders have the say in that, personally I reckon one of the Chinese tech giants will buy Nokia.

    As a windows phone user I can honesty say that the ecosystem is garbage. There are not enough bundled apps eg no stop watch or timer and obviously no google maps or translate(bing versions are as good as worthless). The internet browsing is crud too no forward key and back key goes back to tile screen when you try and multitask. My lumina 620 handset however is great, understated good build quality with a real flash… It kicks the c*** out of cheap android phones of similar price. Nokia should adopt ‘stock’ android and get on with building solid phones which is what they do best!
