Microsoft are also rumored to be working on their first Nokia Lumia smartphone that will run Android, the company already has an Android device in the form of the Nokia X2, but this new device will be the first to use the Lumia brand, which up until now has been exclusively for Windows Phone.
The company is obviously hoping to entice Android users to their Windows Phone platform, by hoping that a Android based Lumia handset will get them interested in Windows Phone Lumia devices.
As yet we do not have any details on when Microsoft plans to bring Android apps to their Windows Phone devices, and also launch their first Lumia Android smartphone, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know.
