0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Nokia recently teamed up with Microsoft, to launch a new attack on the mobile marketplace. Nokia leader Stephen Elop has issued a warning this week to Android phone makers, saying they should be concerned.

The news that Google are going to buy Motorola for $12.5 billion has caused much debate in analyst circles, with some claiming that Motorola will get better service than rivals HTC or Samsung.

Stephen Elop has been fueling the fire and he said at a Helsinki seminar this week “If I happened to be someone who was an Android manufacturer or an operator, or anyone with a stake in that environment, I would be picking up my phone and calling certain executives at Google and say ‘I see signs of danger ahead.”

The move, he claims has also highlighted the positive move for Nokia to partner up with Microsoft.

“The very first reaction I had was very clearly the importance of the third ecosystem and the importance of the partnership that we announced on February 11, it is more clear than ever before.”

    Nokia made a bad move, they just needed to develop their own system. it was a good OS< just needed updated.

    Honestly, I don’t feel like Android phone makers have anything to be worried about. I’m not really sure why they would think that there would be anything to worry about. Google has always been into making flagship, enthusiast phones that showcase all of what Android can do. I really don’t see what is going to change other than the fact that Google doesn’t have to rely on a third party to make their phones for them.
