I may be wrong on this, but making an android port to nokia phones is not that capital intensive. Nokia could have even made an N9 android port. At ~$300, i'd buy one. After all they had people who know linux pretty well, and i'm sure the community would have lent a hand
Look at how this jerk even handles the current crisis. Check out his twitter account.
My dear freetard friend, it's not about how cheaply you can put an OS on a phone. The cost of the WP OS license is chump change compared to the cost of the hardware components. It's about Nokia wanting to own part of the ecosystem. With the Windows Phone ecosystem, that is exactly what they got. Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive will now be standard on WP8 devices--even those made by other OEMs.
