It would appear that according to a recent report, Nokia is frustrated with Microsoft over Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform. The news comes in an interview with Nokia vice president Bryan Biniak who recently spoke to the IBT.
Nokia has been announcing new devices regularly since Windows Phone 8 was launched, and Nokia are apparently trying to get Microsoft to think differently about Windows Phone 8.
Nokia apparently want Microsoft to speed up the development of their Windows Phone platform and also apps, saying that the lack of apps needs to be addressed.
“To give you a reason to switch, I need to make sure the apps that you care about on your device are not only on our phones, but are better. I also need to provide you unique experiences that you can’t get on your other devices.”
We are releasing new devices frequently and for every new device, if there is an app that somebody cares about that’s not there that’s a missed opportunity of a sale.”
“We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say ‘time is of the essence.’ Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets, doesn’t do us any good when I have phones to sell today.”
Whether Nokia will be able to get Microsoft to speed things up on their Windows Phone platform development remains to be seen, it will be interesting to see what happens.
