Nokia’s EVP Savander says: N8 coming soon – Meego is too – No to Android and Sprint

In what is clearly some of the most firm statements coming from Nokia is a long time, Executive Vice President general manager of the Markets unit at Nokia, Niklas Savander agreed to answer consumer questions live on Twitter. Although I love the build quality of Nokia and the cameras are to die for, not agreeing to even try out Android on one handset, development better relationships with American carriers (Sprint) and trying to deploy your own OS when Apple and Android are dominating the market, with Microsoft Phone 7 and HP/Palm’s webOS looking to return with some big bangs of their own, Nokia may be headed down a road of no-return.

In a candid yet unsettling open live question session, Savander answers questions as best he could and we’ve put together some highlights:

  • Nokia N8 shipping at the end of Q3 (September)
  • A MeeGo based product will be released by the end of the year
  • Nokia has no interest in Android
  • Nokia has no plans to release a phone via Sprint
  • S60 users are biggest smartphone user group with 41% share

If you are interested in learning more and reading more about the Twitter questions, head on over to Nokia conversations and read up on their blog.
