It sure is amazing how quick some users are to jump to conclusions and miss the truth just because their hatred towards a company blinds them.
So Nokia is going to be making Android smartphones and tablets?
Which decisions exactly would those be? The big lines deciding OS future for example were done before Elop, by the board of directors.You're right. Kallasvuo's decisions led to Nokia falling.
Elop's decisions led to Nokia putting a grenade in their mouth and pulling the pin.

Which decisions exactly would those be?
Yes, those decisions led to disasters, but they weren't initiated by Elop. Nokia actually held tons if not all of their IP, IIRC, and just licenced them to MS1 - Going with windows phone, which at the time had already proven to be a failure (BTW nothing changed in that department after all these years)
2 - Going exclusively with windows phone, which at the time had already proven to be a failure.
Doesn't matter if it was Elop or BoD's decisions. These were the decisions that ultimately got tens of thousands of Finnish without jobs and a huge flow of intellectual property value away from Finland.
So elop had nothing to do with choosing WP? Why did MS reward him after it acquired Nokia?
Nokia had brand equity in Europe so for a time, the Nokia Lumias were doing okay in some countries like Italy, actually outselling iPhone. Was that because of WP or the Nokia name?
Given all the reboots of WP, maybe Nokia Android phones may have had a chance to build up some momentum against Samsung Galaxy in some markets.
