Nokia have been having a tough time of it lately with more and more people choosing alternatives from other manufacturers. It may not just down to the handsets the company offers now days, but the OS it is running.
Electric Pig is reporting that Stephen Elop, Nokia’s CEO, has dropped a hint that Nokia handsets could use another OS. He said “We have a fundamental competitiveness problem overall.” He wants Nokia to work faster to improve its products, and said it is not just down to hardware but “a war of eco-systems”.
That’s when he hinted that Nokia may join a competitive “eco-system”, which could possibly mean Android, as many other phone manufacturers have already taken to it. The Huffington Post are reporting in an article that Nokia’s earnings dropped a massive 21 percent in Q4, with the company giving a bleak outlook with flat or little growth in sales.
Nokia has lost out to the likes of Apple and RIM in the smartphone market, but Nokia have said it will reveal its new strategy in London next month. Would you like to see a Nokia device running Android?
