Nokia denies plans phone running Google's Android
TALLINN (Reuters) - The world's top cellphone maker Nokia said on Monday it was not working on introducing a phone running on Google's Android operating system.
British daily The Guardian said on Monday the Finnish mobile phone maker was understood by industry insiders to be developing a smartphone that runs on Google's Android software, to be introduced in September.
"Absolutely no truth to this whatsoever," said a Nokia spokesman.
Google's Android is a rival to Nokia's Symbian software.
"Everyone knows that Symbian is our preferred platform for advanced mobile devices."
Google's Android has got a lot of traction in the cellphone industry, with many vendors planning to introduce phones using it, but so far only a few Android phones have reached consumers.
