Nokia: 'Our first priority is beating Android'

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop on stage at MWC in Barcelona had a few choice things to say about the recent announcement that Nokia will partner with Microsoft to create devices which run Windows Phone software. Elop told the crowd assembled there that Nokia's "first priority is beating Android," and he also took a moment to let everyone know that Nokia is not interested in being the only company producing Windows Phones -- countering some recent exclusivity chatter.

Tough act I must say. Nokia basically is starting from scratch by going with Microsoft rather than Google

Good. They need to o back and forth to get the spot as number one phone. Means the customer will get a good product.

Nokia is about the only company left that still makes phones that aren't iphone touch-screen style. I hate touch-screens!

Good luck Nokia
Android will crush you. you cant beat free open source. hackers run technology, and they like open source.

Seing as how all of my prevoius phones are Nokia, I'm glad they're going onboard with Windows phone. However, I'm not due for an upgrade till the end of this year so I'll be holding back until then.

It will be interesting to see, and it's always good when there's a diverse range on the market.

Thanks for the follow, I'll do the same. This article brought me back to the Nokia N-Gage. Nokia always thinks it has something up its sleeve, but I guess we'll see.
