Nokia’s road to demise

When Nokia dumped Symbian I was saying that they either have to embrace an existing solution, such as Android, or create something from scratch.

The reason for dumping Symbian was likely because is was too much rooted in the past. They thought it would be hard for Symbian to compete with iOS and Android. Maybe, maybe not.

But then they chose to replace Symbian with Windows Mobile/Phone. It was obvious it was not going to fly. Windows Phone had a niche market and it was unlikely it would pick up. Basically they bet on a dead horse. They jumped on it because Microsoft paid them to use Windows Phone, they were tempted by the money.

Now a Nokia’s ex-exec confirms it that it was a very bad decision.

I guess they did not go with Android, because they had their heads too high in… the clouds.
