Nokia Android Phone For 2011: Competitiveness Problem

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?

'Will lose their users'. Well Users don't bring in any money for Nokia. My N70 is 5 years old now, and it did cost more than twice what a Samsung Galaxy 5 running Android does today… I am definitely not a Nokia Customer – it was the best phone for the money at that time. Now, they have nothing to offer me in my opinion. Applications I managed to install to make my N70 unique – well I managed to install equivalents on the Samsung for free within 5 minutes (call recorder, three great games) but then the list goes… Read more »

Nokia should think forward with Android.There was a time when Microsoft make windows available to everyone and made it user friendly ,now what we see is over 90% around the world use windows.This is going to happen with android too.
