NokiaAndroidYesterday we posted about Elop stating “Anything is possible” about a Nokia Android phone, well apparently Gizmodo just really sucks at translating their own stories (I do take some blame for trusting them). WP Central contacted Nokia about the rumor and here is the response as well as the word for word response given by Elop:

 Nokia categorically denies that what Elop said implies anything different from what he has stated over and over for months now.

Do you rule out 100% launching a smartphone based on Android in 2013?

Elop: So, the way I think about it is, in the current war on ecosystems, we are fighting with Windows Phone. That’s what we’re doing. Now, what we’re always doing is asking, how does that evolve? What’s next? What role does HTML5 play? What role does Android or other things play in the future? We’re looking further into the future, but it terms of what we’re bringing to market, and what we’re immediately focused on, we’re focused on Windows Phone.”
