“Nokia is Not For Sale!” – Stephen Elop (“Ovi Brand a mistake”)

| June 9, 2011 | 30 Replies

As you know, Stephen Elop is at Open Mobile Summit today, he gave a keynote at 9:30 today (GMT).

Some choice quotes are flying everywhere. Engadget has a CE-OH no he didn’t when Elop supposedly said Apple created Android…or at least the conditions. Well in essence that’s true and two, he said this at Uplinq two weeks ago.

“Apple being Apple took a mobile approach and kept the ecosystem closed
and to themselves. In so doing they essentially created Android. By
having a wonderful UX to which everyone wanted to do the same thing.
Apple created a vacuum and google stepped in and filled that void.”


Anyway, Camb078 retweeted a comment from an attendee @lifeisbetteron which for a while should calm all rumours about possible Microsoft or the more recent Samsung buy out of Nokia.

Nokia Q&A at #OpenMobile: @selop says Nokia is not for sale to @BenWood

Other things Elop said (via @lifeisbetteron):

  • “Nokia is the only brand that really matters in Nokia’s ecosystem, the OVI brand was a mistake”
  • Nokia, HTC, Samsung need to band together to compete with Android and iPhone
