Why not a Nokia Droid?
Nokia just announced that it has sold over a million Lumia phones. Good for Nokia. However, I still don’t understand why Nokia would commit exclusively to Microsoft when it can also be making Android phones. That is, if you decided that it is not worth owning the software risk, then why not completely outsource the software risk and focus entirely on the hardware. Whether Windows wins or Android, you would be covered. Under the current strategy, one has just changed the software risk from Symbian risk to Windows mobile risk. While I think it was a good decision to go away from Symbian, it’s not clear it was the best decision to not add Android to the mix.
