Earlier today Nokia announced their rumored line of Android based phones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The reaction on Twitter and other social media channels has been very divided for and against. Some prominent Microsoft watchers believe Microsoft will keep the line going once it completes its purchase of Nokia’s phone business. Others are convinced that the line of Android phones using Microsoft services will die a quick death like Kin once did.
Whichever way it goes this is most certainly something to keep an eye on.
