Smartphone News Byte: Elop Finally Admits Why Nokia Didn't Switch to Android: Samsung Scared Him Away

by Wochit 1:16 mins

Every single time Nokia unveils a new smartphone or reports numbers of any kind, a familiar question is raised: What if Nokia had switched to Android instead of Windows Phone? This was a fun game to play for a few months after Nokia first announced it would dump Symbian and MeeGo in favor of Microsoft's mobile platform, but now that ship has sailed. A Morgan Stanley analyst think the Apple may show better-than-expected phone numbers when it reports earnings next week. Nokia noted declining revenues and overall unit sales in handsets, but also improving operating profits -- cross currents that point to a company still doing quite a lot of cost cutting to right-size itself. And in its earnings statement, Nokia added one more detail indicating that this cutting exercise will continue to be played out in the quarters ahead: up to 440 jobs will be cut in its mobile phones division -- that is, the legacy part of its devices business that does not include smartphones.
