Nokia CEO Stephen Elop used his keynote at the Open Mobile Summit in London Thursday to explain, again, why the company chose the Windows Phone OS for its smartphones and insisted during a question-and-answer session that, despite persistent rumors to the contrary, the company is not for sale.
That is a problem because time is also of the essence. Many potential customers have not decided which smartphone to buy, but when they do that is the OS they will stick with, he said.
"It is not too late for Nokia, but time is running out," said Windsor.
