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.

In an interview aired on a Finnish TV, Risto Siilasmaa, a member of the Nokia board of directors, said that Android is the company’s “backup plan” if Windows Phone 8 fails.

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.

  13. If you dont mind, exactly where do you host your weblog? I am looking for a good quality web host and your site seams to be quick and up all the time

  14. I almost never leave responses, however I read a ton of remarks on Android is Nokia’s backup plan if WP8 fails, company exec says GamyGuru – Prince of Game World. I actually do have some questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be simply me or does it seem like some of these responses come across as if they are written by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your social networking sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  15. Aw, this was a really nice post. In concept I would like to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and precise effort to make a very good article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means appear to get something done.

  16. How long can my computer keep running with an outdated browser?

    • Well! I dont think that your computer’s status and life is attached with your browser. Browser is not an operating system, and your computer can be affected by problems or expiry of operating system, not the browser. So, I think it can keep running and running. 🙂

  17. Everything wrote was actually very reasonable. However, what about this? what if you were to write a awesome post title? I ain’t saying your information isn’t good., but suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Android is Nokia’s backup plan if WP8 fails, company exec says GamyGuru – Prince of Game World is kinda vanilla. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write news titles to get people to click. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    • Thanks Serena for pointing out a very good mistake of mine. I actually just started the blog, so I really need the feedback from my readers. Thanks for informing me about Yahoo! titles. I surely work on that now…. Thanks 🙂
