That seems a good idea, especially for low-end phones in emerging markets.

I wonder if they're also considering Mozilla's phone OS.

Nokia has been building its own Android phone according to multiple sources familiar with the company’s plans. Codenamed Normandy, and known internally at Nokia under a number of other names, the handset is designed as the next step in low-end phones from the Finnish smartphone maker. We understand that Nokia has been testing “Normandy” with a special “forked” variant of Android that’s not aligned with Google’s own version, akin to what Amazon does with its Kindle Fire line.Report: Nokia Building Android Phone [theverge.com]

I highly doubt they will build android phones now, after MS bought them. First: Android nokia will shoot windows phone in the foot, and obviously MS will not let that happen. Second: if there were any real plans in building android nokia phones, then the right time would be before being acquired by MS, as android phones would sell much better than windows phones and the price of the company would naturally grow. Nokia was a great company but failed to adopt to the smartphone market, and not having android phones was their biggest mistake.
