Android?

I'm not sure if those class of phones (Series 40 UI, if I remember correctly) even used Symbian. I think they used an embedded operating system called OSE. The Series 60, 80 and 90 phones did use Symbian however.

EDIT:

To be honest, I can't see this as a positive move. I can understand both Nokia and Microsoft wanting to extend their market share, but I can't see such devices (running WP7) gaining much traction with consumers. What Nokia really need to do is a) hire a decent UI guru and b) look at what the enterprise needs in order to be comfortable with having to deal with mobiles.

Cover these two angles, and they'd be in good shape.

Quite true. Meego with Android app support would be better. Meego has the backing of quite a few big companies (such as Intel and AMD); not just one company (MS). Nokia should drop Symbian to keep with just one OS and focus on Meego. Meego is the only full OS project suitable for smartphones, tablets, and PC's (It is much more functional than ChromeOS or Android while being as easy to use with fingers or mouse).

The other things Nokia needs to do are to work on carrier relations and just deliver a product. Historically, Nokia has had bad relations with US carriers (primarily over subsidies for phones). These relations need to be fixed. Nokia has changed strategies several times in the past five or so years. They need to just stick with one. The biggest reason that they don't have a new mobile platform yet is Meego. They had Maemo (which they worked on for years) and suddenly scraped it a little less than a year ago and started over with Meego (and changed development platforms again). Nokia has just committed the same mistake again with WP7. They need to just stick it out with Meego and Qt instead of changing yet again.

Also, the Microsoft angle strikes me as a bit of "embrace, extend, and extinguish"
