Android is Nokia’s backup plan if WP8 fails, company exec says
When I read this news, I was kind of literally shocked. Basically, I am doing android development for almost 3 years. Then, in an exhibition I met a guy, who has been doing Nokia Development for 14 years. He recommended me to start N0kia Development, and I was also thinking to start it. But, this news is saying something else for me, and I think this might be surprising for you too.
According to news in the article, Nokia executive says in an interview, which was broadcast live, that if Windows Phone 8 plan fails, then Nokia will start porting Android on their devices.
My thoughts on the plan are that if Nokia ports Android on their devices, then it will be very good opportunity and competition for Android developers. So, what do you think about what will happen? If you have any thought or comment, please don’t hesitate to write it.
The original news is quoted below:
Nokia has been frantically rejecting the possibility of putting Android on its smartphones, but this might change if Windows Phone 8 fails to gain traction.
However, Siilasmaa also added that he is happy with how things are currently shaping up for Windows Phone 8 and switching to plan B probably won’t be required. Microsoft and Nokia are betting on more features and less bugs to turn things in their favor.
Many people are going to be quite happy if in fact Nokia joins the Android camp and starts manufacturing some truly high-end devices. However, such a turn of events seems unlikely as the contract between Nokia and Microsoft is said to contain clauses, which force the Finns to focus all their effort on WP.
