Nokia has proved itself committed to the Windows Phone platform, along with Symbian, over the recent years. Whereas companies such as HTC and Samsung have tried to gain a foothold in both the Android and Windows Phone platforms, Nokia has categorically debunked the possibility of creating an Android smartphone in the near future.

This rebuttal was delivered by Nokia’s CEO, Stephen Elop, during the company’s quarterly earnings call. Whereas Elop repeatedly stressed on the fact that Nokia was dedicated to the Windows Phone platform, he didn’t forget to mention that the company would continue development on Asha smartphones.

According to Elop, “We are clearly innovating with Microsoft around Windows Phone, and are focused on taking that to lower and lower price point. You will see that over time [we will] compete with Android. But at the same time we’ve said consistently — and we’re just beginning to see it in the Asha full-touch products — that we will continue to innovate around our Asha smartphone line in order to compete with the very lowest levels of Android.”

Elop also took the occasion to criticize Google and point out that the search giant has tried to somehow close down the open Android ecosystem, stating, “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.”

Of course he didn’t elaborate exactly how Google has managed to accomplish maintaining an open platform while at the same time trying to keep it closed. Elop’s earnings calls speech reinforces the perception that Nokia is going to continue trying its luck with Windows Phone.

    Listening to Elop spinning doesn’t even elicit a raised eyebrow these days…

    Everybody knows he’s full of it.

    and “Open” is an interesting word that means different things to different people.

    To a company like Nokia, known for its perpetual knee falls before Telcos, “open” means the ability to mess with the operating system to prevent consumers from doing this and that.

    For consumers, “open” has little to do with how soon the source code becomes available, but is related to how often they get blocked by walls preventing them from doing what they want, to benefit some corporation, usually enabling various money grabs. Like M$ Phone with its locked down system and single source appstore with its 30% Microsoft tax on everything.

    Hey, Nokia Shareholders! Get rid of Elop and add some OS variety, like the new Ubuntu phone OS…
