All aboard the self-delusion merry-go-round!
Yeah, you read that title right. Nokia's (soon-to-be former) executive VP Anssi Vanjoki gave an interview to the Financial Times today (via Electronista). He stated that switching over to Android would be nothing more than a stop-gap measure for Nokia.
Then Vanjoki went on to compare switching over to Google's open source OS to Finnish boys who pee their pants in order to stay warm on cold winter days. While that is an excellent example of a short-term solution, I can't really agree with Vanjoki's assessment.
It is fairly obvious that Nokia is behind the smartphone curve. The US mobile market is a crucial proving ground for future-tech, and Nokia is getting murdered here. Symbian does not have what the people want, and MeeGo has yet to prove itself in any way. Switching full-throttle over to Android may not be the solution, but ignoring it entirely doesn't seem very wise from a purely survival-based perspective.
