It has been an interesting week for Nokia, first we had Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop say that the company was ‘standing on a burning platform’, then we heard that the first Meego Nokia device had been cancelled.
So where does this leave Nokia? We have heard that the company will release at least one Meego device this year, and also that they need to make dramatic changes to compete against the iPhone and Android.
We have been hearing rumors that Nokia will start producing Windows Phone 7 devices, and now Bloomberg is reporting that Nokia’s CEO, Stephen Elop has been having talks with Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer.
Nokia are holding a meeting tomorrow in London, where their new CEO will detail the companies strategy for taking the company forward, and we are expecting them to announce a partnership with Microsoft.
Bloomberg are also reporting that Elop also held talks with Eric Schmidt from Google about the possibility of using Android as an OS for Nokia devices, alkthough the report says that this is a lot less likely.
It will be interesting to see what Nokia has to announce tomorrow and to find out what their strategy is, will it be enough to compete with the iPhone and the growing number of Android devices available?
