Rumors of anAndroid" target="_blank">Android" target="_blank"> Android phone coming from Windows Phone handset maker Nokia surfaced last year, buoyed by photos of the purported smartphone leaked by @evleaks in November.

Assuming the reports are accurate, would Nokia still proceed with such a phone in light of Microsoft's buyout of its devices and services division?
