The chief executive of Nokia Stephen Elop confirmed that Windows Phone is the main platform of Nokia smartphones still in February 2011. Then this seemed to be a decision that was supposed to bring Microsoft out of its mobile gutter and announce its as the third mobile platform.
However, the things did not go the way that was planned. It’s already two years after its launch, and Windows Phone still competes with Android and Apple devices. Besides, we always hear rumors, that Microsoft is unhappy about it and is going to make its own surface phone in the coming 2013. This should make Nokia get excited. For the first time Elop admitted that it is really possible and welcomed it.
Read the response on how Nokia reacted to the new Surface phone of 2013.
“It’s certainly a stimulant to the ecosystem. We’re encouraging of HTC and Samsung and Microsoft or whomever to have devices in the market and to be making whatever investments that helps spur the ecosystem on.”
Surely, this does not ensure the rumor of the possible Surface phone but someway accepts its possibility and if it is done the same way as the Surface tablet, Microsoft most likely will not be happy to see what its vendors bring to the market. Nokia is most likely excited.
