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

0. phoneArena posted on 07 Feb 2013, 04:37

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..."

But i bought a Ouya console it will run JB, i am curious.
I tested the S3 with a Lumia 900, and wtf the 900 was faster and snapier with it's singlecore. So i skipped buying the S3.
I think i will go with a new Lumia line, see what Nokia shows at the MWC :)
But still i use my N9, Meego best and simple os ever!

You're a bad liar, JB slow and laggy on the S3? Now I've heard everything, we have Windows lovers claiming BS on one end and Apple making commercials about panoramic camera shots...all apparently dislike Android for whatever reasons. Then people complain about android because it has a version for whatever walk of life you have, cheap phone, android has you, medium priced phone full of features, got you there too...high priced super phones that make even desktops jealous Android once again got you there.
I'm not making an argument but I just don't get the Android hate. If it weren't Android being pushed by Google so much, everyone would be walking around with iPhones and still without BT file transfers and no MMS, no panoramic cameras, utilitarian designed phone. It's great to have competition, without it smart phones would still be as dumb as the first generation iPhone.
Here's one quick thing about Windows Phone fans, you guys do realize that your OS is pretty much the exact same concept as iOS right? Do you think that MS is doing right by you guys trying to copy Apple's formula and applying it to multiple devices and hoping to score big.
If Meego was so great, why didn't Nokia keep it alive and keep on making phones with that then? Food for thought, just because you think it's the best thing since sliced bread doesn't mean it actually is.

He said it the first time when it was about phones....it wasnt mis translated. That 2nd article was him saying the same thing...just worded different.

So.....are we gonna say this is mistranslated too?

I hope they make Android phones. Windows Phone is the only thing holding me back from loving Nokia again :/

There's a huge piece of "cake" (market share) waiting for their Android devices, shame on Elop for giving it away to Plastsung and other Apple-wannabies and copycats.

Exactly, MeeGo was the only thing that could've saved Nokia. I call that innovation, open source, NFC, a unique UX, the best design in a smartphone ever. What did Elopocalypse do? Went the boring route with WP.

Meego? They should go Open webOS. Hey If we're grabbing at distant last place OS' that we have fond memories of I might as well throw mine in there. Lol

On it would be so boring if Nokia moves to Android.I mean yes,Android is a very cool OS with best customization options and good apps,but Nokia will lose it's individuality if it moves to Android.Nokia is a unique company,which doesn't use Android as an OS on their smartphones,and as I know,only Nokias and iPhones are the only phones which don't use Android.

Obvious answer is that if the Lumia line doesnt seriously pick up, either MS is gonna have to buy them out completely or they are gonna have to broaden their portfolio to include android to sell phones.

that is exactly why this move needs to be made as soon as the opportunity can be made! it would eliminate those possible downfalls...

There is a very high probability that Windows 8 will become the number 2 tablet platform within 6-12 months, so I very much doubt it.

Highly unlikely, since Windows RT is very limited and boring.

i would bet on windows surface pro before RT. pro offers alot more options, especially in the business market.

What makes you so sure? WP is barely making a dent..you think the tablet is gonna do better?

The pro should, but I don't know if a good majority of folks are gonna want it.

It could simply be that they use both, a device with android and one without it

Yeah yeah yeah, he always says that. Deep down he's just a lap dog. At least Nokia's making profit now, so that's a good thing.

Nokia must jump into Tablet market they would've find some place in this universe as well because they have the ability to give some reasonable tough time to other competitors. :)
