Nokia has bet the future of its business on Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform, with the two companies singing a deal that saw Microsoft pay Nokia a large amount of cash.
Many people have been wondering what Nokia will do if Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform fails, and it would appear that the company has a back up plan in the event of this, and it is Google’s Android platform.
Risto Siilasmaa, who is on Nokia’s board of directors recently gave an interview to Finnish TV, and whilst he said that Nokia are happy with Windows Phone, they do have a backup plan for Google’s Android OS if Windows Phone fails on the future.
When Nokia announced their partnership with Microsoft, many people wondered why Nokia didn’t start to produce Android handsets as well as Windows Phone devices, obviously the large cash payment from Microsoft made sure that Nokia would be concentrating on Windows Phone.
