    I’m sure many of you remember when Nokia’s CEO had nothing good to say about Android? Well apparently no one listened to him and Android is still manhandling him across China and Europe. According to word of mouth, Nokia’s CEO, on a conference call said a few things about why they aren’t doing so hot in the two most important markets. According to the story; in china, he blames mismanagement for his failed attempt at pushing phones and in Europe, he admits Android is running the streets.


    Before we get to the quotes, we just want to remind you that we do feel sorry for the competition but Droid FTW.



    Here are the exact quotes:

    And in Europe, Android was also routing Nokia. Elop noted:
    is getting whacked on feature phones too. Elop said:

    Nokia, I dont think its too late to throw some attention Android's way. Put ego's aside and get it done.

    Wouldn't want to pee on myself to stay warm.. oh wait isn't that what was said about Android.. Guess Nokia is second guessing themselves now. WIN7 phones look great.. good luck trying to push them out now that Android has saturated the market.. Of course that was once said about Nokia and Symbian, so best of luck to them.. i guess..

    Bummer for Nokia. Looks like the ceo is second guessing himself. Maybe Steve Ballmer can give him a hug?

    Told 'em so! Geeze, didn't even have to be a mind-reader for that!

    For a while I had hoped for a E71 model running Android. It was a great piece of hardware but it had a real dopey OS, plus the screen was way too small.

    Now I'll never have a phone with a screen smaller than 4".

    Android all the way baby!
