which be the First to switch to the Android OS
this is a good question
- windows7 wont switch because they are windows and windows never fails lol
- nokia has already gone to windows as they finally realised that symbian was terrible
- blackberry i dont think will ever go to android but just die out
Are you asking which one will switch to start using the android OS? I don't think the Windows Phone 7 will switch... ever... Can't really say anything about Nokia or Blackberry though. However, I think if the blackberry wants to survive, they might switch to android or windows.
The news about the BlackBerry playbook running Android apps and BB Messenger running on Android suggests that RIM may possibly move in that direction.
It'll be nokia. Yes symbian was failing so they agreed to use windows 7 because Microsoft and nokia struck a deal which would benefit Microsoft. Ms is having problems getting people to switch to their mobile OS so they wanted to sign a phone maker. Nokia was up for it because it would help them dig themselves out of a hole.... theoretically.
Thing is, wp7 isn't going to sell like microsoft wants it to - anybody here remember when they tried to take on the iPod with the zune? Same thing is happening - a ton of advertising about simplicity and such but no results.
Once nokia wises up, you'll see the little green robot in their phones.
Blackberry won't switch anytime soon but they will cooperate with android because it'll help their sales and appeal.
Windows won't switch on premise: google and windows compete with everything - browsers, search, pc OS, mobile OS, etc.
