Nokia Chief made Nokia's intentions clear in Sydney by saying that
“We would consider any option [Android or Windows] … It is important to note that the opportunity for companionship is something that any user is looking for. So, when you think about the Lumia 920, running on Windows phone, having a Windows tablet or PC or Xbox is something that will give us the opportunity to have a pretty integrated experience. Our first focus on what we look at is clearly in the Microsoft side,” Mr Elop said
“But we have made no decision or announced nothing.”
This may be very good news for Nokia and Nokia fans alike as the company is going downhill along with RIM since 2011. However during his interaction with reporters he made it clear that as of now Nokia's partner is going to Microsoft. Mr Elop said.
“We haven’t announced tablets at this point, but it is something we are clearly looking at very closely. We are studying very closely the market right now as Microsoft has introduced the Surface tablet, so we are trying to learn from that and understand what the right way to participate would be and at what point in time.”
It may be to early to comment on this issue but Nokia in the same space as Samsung would be a truly gigantic competitive market for makers and best position to be in for users. This would further create headache for Apple which is still reeling from the Samsung assault.
