Default [Q] Nokia X and Nokia 521

So, with the upcoming release of the Nokia X, the rumors say that it has very simular specs to the Nokia 521 (that I picked up last week for real cheep). since they are both made by the same company, with what looks like the same hardware, what are the chances of getting Android ported over from the X to the 521? Is there a low level hertel that just can't be overcome or is it just a mater of a developer putting in the time? Thanks

I think the real problem is locked boot-loader on lumia. Lumia 520 is the most popular wp8 device so there's no shortage of devs.

BTW your lumia is better than X as it has 5mp camera and dual core krait.

First, Lumia has a locked bootloader. Don't expect that to change anytime soon.

Second, Windows Phone and Android boot very differently. At least until WP8.1 comes out and maybe things change, since Microsoft claimed soon Android and WP could share hardware, but that could mean everything but that part.
