All I can say is...yay!
Nokia has always been known for making great devices, even before adopting Windows Phone. If I could get a Lumia and run Android on it I would. Nokia is to Windows Phone as Samsung and Motorola are to Android.
While you still have more free reign as a Windows developer than an iOS developer, it is still nowhere near the level of freedom Android grants you, especially when it comes to certain lines of hardware. If it weren't my daily driver, my Galaxy Nexus would've already had a release of Ubuntu Phone or Mer w/ Plasma Active on it. Maybe whenever I upgrade to whatever replaces the Nexus 4. :P
Not really surprising really. With all the devices out there that run Android of course it will gain a large marketshare.
I think perhaps my biggest issue right now is a good portion of the adoption rate has been due to cheap carriers selling cheap handsets that either can't handle a lot or have a ton of custom junk on top. I think the only 3rd party launcher/suite I really even tolerate is Touchwiz, and that is because it fits in with Samsung's overall experience. I guess I am an Android snob and like my Android experience a certain way. But at the end of the day, isn't that the point of Android? Better than Apple's or Microsoft's walled garden our way or the highway approach.
