Nokia Exec Anssi Vanjoki Says Using Android Is Like Peeing In Your Pants For Warmth

Posted Sep 22, 2010

Even though Nokia smartphones head Anssi Vanjoki is planning to step down, he had some bold words to say about using Android. He compared mobile phone makers that use Android to Finnish boys who “pee in their pants” for warmth in the winter. The message is basically that temporary relief is followed by a much worse predicament.

Nokia is being questioned about whether to abandon their own mobile operating system and use Google Android instead. Especially because Nokia puts about one-tenth of its handset division revenue into R&D. This is three times as much as Apple.
