Nokia says no to Windows Phone 7 and Android

Nokia executives have been facing a barrage of questions recently about why the company doesn’t abandon Symbian and MeeGo mobile operating systems in favour of Google’s Android OS.

EVP and general manager for markets Niklas Savander has discussed the firm’s opposition to such a move, and why it has no intentions to introduce Windows Phone 7 handsets, in an interview with Cnet.

"We need to be confident that we can add a significant amount of value on top of whatever platform we choose," he said.

"Currently, we don’t think the platforms out there which we are not using – Android and Microsoft – offers an incremental opportunity for us to add value that would sustain a competitive advantage over somebody else. So, no plans."
