Google’s Android takes a 36 percent-size slice of the pie and Apple doubled the number of iPhones it sold last year. Nokia has serious problems keeping up with Apple and phones running Android , this could only mean that the possibility of joining the Android revolution is as real as can be for the company.

Windows Phone 7 could also be an option , but it seems like a pretty remote option. Its presence in the market is too short for Nokia to play its most important and only card on.
Android is the obvious choice and direction for Nokia. With Nokia’s hardware and Androids adoption by software developers and consumers, really great things could happen.
