Google’s reaction to Nokia & Microsoft: “Turkeys”

Google’s Vice President of Engineering, Vic Gundotra is not at all impressed with news that Nokia and Microsoft are aiming to work together. Not at all.

Vic published this tweet with the hash-tag #feb11:

So, Nokia’s definitely not doing business with Google Android in the short term then, eh? 😉

Depending on the configuration of the strategic announcements coming on Friday, Google should be a little/reasonably/highly concerned.

Meanwhile Vic also reports that tickets for the upcoming Google I/O event sold out within 59 minutes.

    Yeah, with the verizon iPhone, Nokia & WP7, and Oracle suits, I think Android is a lot less attractive all of a sudden

    Google has nothing to be worried about, except for the fact that they don’t have an ecosystem – simply an OS that OEMs are fracturing into tiny pieces built for specific devices with a 6-8 month shelf life. If Nokia & MS can at least ensure a single ecosystem between the hardware and software, then it won’t matter how much Android there is out there because it won’t actually look/feel the same between one device and the next.

    Hi Ewan, I am surprised there is no post to do with Nokia’s burning platfom memo?
