Elop said: “I do not want Nokia’s tablet PC products are difficult to distinguish with other vendors’.” Analysts believed that this sentence was a satire of many vendors swarmed in, rushed to launch the tablet PC equipped with Android system. Nokia allied with Microsoft in February this year, a comprehensive turn to Windows Phone platform.
Elop also said: “Obviously, even if a company can obtain a variety of revenue from Android, and its profits will assume more and more pressure.”
Android Tablet PC makers encountered strong compression from Apple iPad in the initial stages, which this year’s sales expected to reach 30 million units or more, has a leading market position. On the other hand, for some manufacturers, including HTC, the profit margins of Android platform has improved.
