Microsoft Rumored To Integrate Android Apps 189

phmadore writes "Windows Phone has been struggling for market share, largely due to a serious lack of developers willing to invest their time in what one might consider a niche market. Statistically speaking, Android has more than 1.1M apps to Windows Phone's 200,000+. Well, according to unnamed sources informing the Verge, Microsoft may soon integrate/allow Android applications into both Windows and Windows Phone."

Ben Thompson has an insightful post about how Microsoft's real decision is whether to focus on devices or services.
