Android isn't designed to be forked. With GMS, Google has deliberately designed Android to resist forking. Suggestions that Microsoft scrap its own operating system in favor of such a fork simply betray a lack of understanding of the way Google has built the Android platform.
I wish more people would understand this.
Do you agree with how he says Amazon has not forked Android? I don't agree based on what I have seen with hands on with the Kindle.

Great article. Puts the notion "Android is open" into perspective.
I agree with opinions I've heard stating that Nokia had this in the works for a while. Until the purchase of Nokia devices/services by Microsoft is complete, Microsoft can not dictate what Nokia does. It would make sense to me for Microsoft to do nothing with Android. Microsoft SHOULD market inexpensive Windows phones (like the 520).
