Nokia: We're Not Working on an Android Phone

Early this morning, reports said the company was going to be unveiling an Android-powered Nokia in September. Yawn, we thought. Plenty of companies are planning Android devices. However, just a few hours later, the Finnish company released a statement addressing those rumors. Much to our surprise Nokia said no, it’s not planning an Android device.

Nokia told Reuters that there is "absolutely no truth to this whatsoever” in the reports and went on to say that, "Everyone knows that Symbian is our preferred platform for advanced mobile devices."

While it makes sense for Nokia to stand by its own OS, we’re a tad disappointed that we won’t be seeing anything Android-related from the company at all. Especially when you consider the huge deal just signed by Nokia and Intel that promises some fancy-pants new MIDs.
