If you want Windows, go for Windows. If you want Android, go for Android. But never go for the fusion of both. Infact never go for the fusion of anything, because we all know how that fails most of the time :/

I already said that microsoft will never allow any android device in its ecosystem and that happened now. Really feel sorry for those who bought nokia x. Also, people must refrain from buying any more x devices as it wouldn’t get any support in future.

It was wise decision btw, and if the launch more windows phone devices with really competitive specs, that would be game changer. Motorola being a perfect example.
