Nokia Android: Elop admits Samsung scared him away from Android | BGR

Every single time Nokia unveils a new smartphone or reports numbers of any kind, a familiar question is raised: What if Nokia had switched to Android instead of Windows Phone? What if? This was a fun game to play for a few months after Nokia first announced it would dump Symbian and MeeGo in favor of Microsoft’s mobile platform, but now that ship has sailed. Revisiting that tired old question repeatedly is indeed typically boring, but it turns out that doing so for the umpteenth time finally got us a candid explanation straight from the horse’s mouth of exactly why Nokia opted for Windows Phone over the world’s top smartphone platform.

In a recent interview, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop finally admitted the real reason that Nokia decided against a switch from Symbian and MeeGo to Android as its platform burned: Samsung.
