Nokia/ Elop: No Indication that Microsoft is Working on ‘Surface’ Device (and more)October 3, 2012 No Comments
Stephen Elop sat down with AllThingsD and talked about Windows Phone, the Lumia Line and tablets. Stephen even put to rest (for now) the rumor of Microsoft building their own phone.
On Lumia Line:
“I’ve said this at our results.., in getting the first Lumia devices out there, I would have liked to have done better,” “There is no question.”
“We have to be able to stand up and say this is fundamentally better and different,”
He stated that he has nothing new to say on this front and understands why Microsoft built the Surface tablet.
“I understand why they do Surface,”
“They have long said that the beauty and glory is not being well landed on hardware. They are saying here is the bar; everyone has to be at least this good.”
Microsoft ‘Surface’ Phone Rumor:
“I have no indications they are planning to do their own phone,”
“They can do it if they so choose.”
