Would You Opt for Windows Phone if You Could Run Android Apps?

I have been very curious about Windows Phone, but the lack of apps has certainly slighted my opinion of the platform. I really like the interface, and Nokia being known as a company that produces top shelf quality stuff – but the app deficit is what keeps many away.
This may be a thing of the past, however. Reports are surfacing that Microsoft is taking a serious look at bringing Android apps to the Windows and mobile Windows platforms. No doubt, this is a radical idea that could really swing the Microsoft mobile platform one way or the other. Windows phones have been gaining market share, but it’s still almost microscopic compared to iOS and Android.
With Blackberry all but gone, there have been rumors that in a last-ditch effort to save the platform, Blackberry would do the same. But on either platform, virtualization can be a sloppy mess if not done correctly, so who knows if it will ever happen.
What do you think? Would you consider a platform migration if Windows phone offered all your favorite Android apps?
