Another week, another news story. This time it is another “confirmation” of an old rumor.

Remember when we covered the story about Windows Phone getting support for Android apps in the future? Tom Warren today on Twitter “confirmed” that once again, as he is still believing in what he said in July.
Every time I read about it I always think the same think: Android apps on Windows Phone will kill the platform. Why? Simply because no developer will develop for Windows Phone anymore if they can reach the same amount of smartphone users by developing for Android only, let alone the totally different UI and UX (and Windows Phone features that Android does not support). However, to make that clear, this is just my personal point of view.

Anyways, what about you, the other Windows Phone users? Would you want/like Android apps on you Windows Phone device? Answer our poll and leave a comment to shout out what you think about all this!
