Are you looking for a Android powered Nokia smartphone? If yes, then your wish could be true in near future. Nokia CEO Stephen Elop said, ‘Anything is possible’ when posed with the all important question of whether there will be a Nokia-Android alliance.
In an interview to a French website which was then translated, Elop said:
In the current ecosystem wars we are using Windows Phone as our weapon. But we are always thinking about what’s coming next, what will be the role of HTML 5, Android… HTML5 could make the platform itself-being Android, Windows Phone or any other-irrelevant in the future, but it’s still too soon to tell. Today we are committed and satisfied with Microsoft, but anything is possible.
Nokia has come out and said that the El Pais interview was mistranslated and the correct translation was:
So, the way I think about it is, in the current war on ecosystems, we are fighting with Windows Phone. That’s what we’re doing. Now, what we’re always doing is asking, how does that evolve? What’s next? What role does HTML5 play? What role does Android or other things play in the future? We’re looking further into the future, but it terms of what we’re bringing to market, and what we’re immediately focused on, we’re focused on Windows Phone.
Rumors of Android powered Nokia phones have been there for quite a long time, however it looks like Nokia is loyal to its Windows OS.
