Nokia Was Testing Android On Lumias Before Microsoft Deal

Well, how about that. A new report brings to light the fact that former Finnish giants Nokia were testing Lumia Smartphones running on.... Android!

There's a ton of buzz on the internet, and we eagerly wait for the dust to settle and for the truth to come out. Read the full report by following the source link posted below.
