Five days ago we posted about Nokia secretly testing Android on it's Lumia and Asha phones, which now turns out to be a real deal, still after Microsoft acquisition.

This secret project is codenamed "MView", which stands out for Google's hometown Mountain View. The report reveals that, Foxconn (smartphone manufacturer) has delivered 10,000 units of this Android-powered Lumia smartphone prototype to Nokia's Beijing R&D Center with Qualcomm 8225Q processor underneath. 

According to their report, Nokia won't cancel this Android-Lumia development plan until the acquisition is not approved by its shareholders. The company is holding a shareholder meeting in November, where the decision will be taken regarding Microsoft's acquisition offer.

So, now it all depends on Nokia shareholders, whether they want to accept this Microsoft offer or decline it, so as to continue the development of Android on Lumia. Hope for the best.
