Nokia should have opted to use Google Android instead of Microsoft’s mobile platform, according to Intel’s CEO.
Last week we told you about that Nokia is partnering With Microsoft. Nokia announced it was migrating to Windows Phone 7, and sidelining its Symbian OS as well as its MeeGo joint project with Intel.
Paul Otellini said Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop had “incredible offers” from both Google and Microsoft to use their operating systems.
“I wouldn’t have made the decision he made, I would probably have gone to Android if I were him,” he told a conference call with analysts, according to Reuters. “MeeGo would have been the best strategy but he concluded he couldn’t afford it.”
“It would have been less hard on Android, on MeeGo he could have done it,”
