The cheapest samsung/nokia handset available in the nearest store is sold for less than 20 u.s. dollars equivalent.

the cheapest samsung smartphone is sold for about 120$ while the cheapest nokia smartphone for about 150$.
the cheapest smartphone from china is sold for about 100$.

the high-end smartphone is a cutthroat market dominated by apple and samsung.

At guest above:
if nokia has chosen android instead of windows phone OS, what rank would nokia occupy?

samsung android is a giant but what ranks do other android supporters have like sony, htc, lg, motorola, etc?

btw, I believe nokia should both have windows phone OS and android like samsung with android and its own bada OS.
