Nokia CEO again says 'we would consider any option' on operating systems going forward

Speaking in Australia the other day, Nokia's CEO let one slip again, when discussing the possibilities of releasing a tablet, and the eventual mobile OS it will use. "We haven't announced tablets at this point, but it is something we are clearly looking at very closely," he said, and then it became interesting. "Our first focus on what we look at is clearly in the Microsoft side," was the follow-up, while he again stated Nokia "would consider any option," for the horror of the PR people around, who advised he mention "but we have made no decision or announced nothing..."

maybe Microsoft paid for a set amt of time for exclusivity. That time is probably coming up soon. Nokia is realizing that the money Microsoft gave them for exclusivity is a paltry sum compared to if they just went Android in the first place, and Elop probably realizes he is on the chopping block if he doesnt conform to the market. So I would anticipiate a Nokia android or similar OS in 2014.
