Google's Andy Rubin hopeful that Nokia will adopt Android
Andy Rubin said that, basically, every OEM manufacturer is adopting Google's mobile OS, and with the shutting down of the Symbian Foundation website Nokia is left the sole licensee of the aging platform. He said that he is totally open for business should the new management at Nokia, which is headed by the former Microsoftie Stephen Elop, decide to evaluate Android as an option. We are sure that Google's chief Android guy would love to see his creation on a few hundred million phones more. The "no comment" type of avoiding direct questions if Google is in talks with Nokia about it, only confirms the sneaking suspicion that talks might already be underway. The Nokia part starts at about 6 minutes into the video below.
