A Nokia Quote to Note about Google
January 24, 2013
I read “Nokia CEO Stephen Elop: Google Is Making Its Open Ecosystem More Closed.” I was not surprised at Nokia’s suggestion. What I noted was this alleged quotation:
“The situation that Android is facing, where the amount of fragmentation that you’re seeing is increasing as people take it in different directions, is of course offset by Google’s efforts to turn an open ecosystem into something that’s quite a bit more closed as you’ve seen quite recently.
Who cares? Maybe Samsung? What if Samsung goes its own direction with mobile operating systems? Impossible? Absolutely. Why would Samsung surf on Android and then want to do its own thing? Crazy?
