I can imagine that in the Nokia engineers' tea room, there is a dartboard with Ballmer's face on it.

Imagine if they had gone with Android instead? One of the most premium component builders with amazing cameras and touch screen tech and the world's most flexible smartphone OS. Could have been taking market share away from the plasticky Samsung S series.

Yeah, but they wouldn't received the big infusion of capital from Microsoupe.

If they had gone with Android, they would be in much worse shape than they are now. Samsung is making money with Android, but it hasn't gone well for the rest. Besides, you can run Android apps on WP8.

Why Android? IMHO they should stick to their inhouse MeeGo/Meamo based OS. I.e. linux with Qt on top of it. They had even nice transition software path based Qt from Symbian to Linux. Even users considered their MeeGo phones to be nice and they've sold well -- till Elop came and kill everything. :-(

It's ironic the obsession with cellphones as toys.
