PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia's vice president Bryan Biniak: "We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say 'time is of the essence'. Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets, doesn't do us any good when I have phones to sell today." Later Biniak adds: "As a company we don't want to rely on somebody else and sit and wait for them to get it right." There was a simple solution to this problem.

"As a company we don't want to rely on somebody else and sit and wait for them to get it right."

I guess it is too late for them to worry Microsoft about using a homegrown OS, since they have killed 3 development efforts.

But if they go with Android they have to "rely on somebody else". Could they be thinking about purchasing the Maemo/Meego startup?
