Nokia Reportedly Considered Android Before Buyout


A report claims that Microsoft decided to purchase Nokia as the Finish company was already testing Android versions of its devices.

Nokia built versions of its Lumia smartphones that could run Android, Google's mobile software, instead of Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 system, according to a report Friday by the New York Times.

Nokia and Microsoft agreed to a partnership in 2011 that would require the two to work together until 2014. However, Microsoft has been slow in releasing updates to its software and it had failed to curate top apps onto its platform.

"We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say 'time is of the essence,'" Nokia's vice president Bryan Biniak had told the International Business Times last July. "Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets doesn't do us any good when I have phones to sell today."

Neither Microsoft nor Nokia have provided any comment.
