Acer executive: If Nokia goes with Android, they'd be a force to be reckoned with
What the Acer executive said about Finnish handset manufacturer Nokia is quite interesting, though. According to Burnes, Nokia is being held back by having to build their own brand as well as Windows Phone. He goes on to add that if Nokia decided to drop Windows Phone for Android, the OEM would be "dangerous" in the Android market.
Moving back to Acer's decision to stick with Android for now, Burnes says that Acer is not happy with the idea of having users pay for apps on Windows Phone that they can get for free on Android. But an Acer branded Windows Phone model will eventually come. "We're expecting Microsoft to do some more consumer-related advertising about its OS, I think as the pull comes, we'll deploy with the handsets because the OS is good," said Burnes.
