No, Android wouldn't have worked. Only Samsung is making any money off it. They're top dog in Android, Nokia's top dog in Windows Phone. The fact that Microsoft is going to throw as much money as necessary to succeed means Nokia will be brought along.

We're not the only ones who like pentaband phones though, so please stop referring to phones that work on Wind and Mobilicity as pentaband. It causes unnecessary cofusion.
