Nokia Just Got Its Best Shot At Making A Comeback
Microsoft offloaded Nokia to a subsidiary of Foxconn. Now, the phone brand can start running Android instead of Windows Phone.By Leah Becerra | May 18, 2016
The first cellphone I can remember my family owning (yeah, we all shared it) was a Nokia 5190. It was this blue brick-phone that we only used to make calls and play "Snake."
It's because of those early brick phones that Nokia is still seen as a good handset — even despite being attached to Windows Phone's sinking ship for so long.
Now, Nokia's got a chance to distance itself from that failing smartphone platform and to regain some of its old glory with the help of new owners and Android's operating system.
