Elop: Nokia can sell cheap Windows Phone 7 smartphones

Nokia CEO believes entry-level WP7 devices can come “very quickly”.

Stephen Elop, the controversial Nokia CEO, stated that one of the key topics discussed with Microsoft before jumping ship with Windows Phones 7 was being convinced that it could doll out entry-level, cheap smartphones devices.

“We have become convinced that we can do that very quickly,” Chief Executive Stephen Elop said in a meeting with Finnish business journalists.

Questions were raised after the Microkia deal if Nokia would miss out on the ‘cheap phone’ market which they so very dominate in many parts of the world. Producing cheap WP7 devices will be vital for Nokia as they can flex their distribution muscle to convert Symbian market share to Windows Phone 7 market share, an area which will now be tightly contested with Google Android-based smartphones.
