Stephen Elop On Nokia Android Device: “Anything Is Possible”

In an interview to Gizmodo, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop answered somewhat positively to the possibility of Nokia Android device in the future. Nokia decided on Windows Phone platform leaving Android citing the differentiation factor among other Android OEMs.

Here is the response of Stephen Elop,

Do you discard launching an Android phone next year?

Elop: In the current ecosystem wars we are using Windows Phone as our weapon. But we are always thinking about what’s coming next, what will be the role of HTML 5, Android… HTML5 could make the platform itself—being Android, Windows Phone or any other—irrelevant in the future, but it’s still too soon [to tell]. Today we are committed and satisfied with Microsoft, but anything is possible.

He also stated that Nokia is fully committed to Windows Phone 8 platform right now and sees good positive growth so far.

I can’t give figures, but the first objective, without giving any dates, is getting a double-digit marketshare. Then, keep pushing and establish an equilibrium with the other two big ecosystems, Apple and Android.
