Nokia Should Have Partnership With Android: Says Intel CEO

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.”

Nokia might find it hard to make outstanding handsets stand the Microsoft platform.
“It would have been less hard on Android, on MeeGo he could have done it,”

The platform for development is way far more easier on Android and profitable than Microsofts. But people report that the Battery timing on Android is not so good as compared to Nokia and Nokia is reliable and it is good for the Business purpose. The partnership with Microsoft will be a good sign for Nokia. If Nokia had partnered with Android so they could only get more users and games, but with Microsoft they can not only get users, Games but they can get Quality and much more new features like Kinect Mobile, Microsoft Office, Windows Platform and much more new things can be ported to the new Windows Phone7.
