BARCELONA, Feb 11 (Reuters) - Nokia NOK1V.HE has no plans to use Microsoft’s (MSFT.O) Windows Mobile operating system in its mobile devices, the head of the world’s largest cellphone maker, Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, said on Monday.
“We don’t have plans to do Windows in mobile at the moment,” Kallasvuo said.
Kallasvuo repeated Nokia would unveil a version of its own operating system, Symbian S60 touch-screen platform, in the second half of 2008.
Nokia rival Sony Ericsson (6758.T) (ERICb.ST) unveiled on Sunday its first cellphone powered by Microsoft’s operating system, meaning all the world’s top handset makers apart from Nokia will have Windows Mobile phones. (Reporting by Tarmo Virki; Writing by Sami Torma; Editing by Quentin Bryar)
