Motorola has revealed that it has no qualms in developing Windows Phones when the time is ripe. Currently, the company is focused on developing devices for Google’s Android platform.
According to Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha, the company is open to the idea of joining hands with Microsoft if they get a suitable deal like the one that was struck recently between Microsoft and Nokia. This idea of the company was put to light during the Oppenheimer Technology & Communications Conference.
The company would evaluate, during the coming days, the growth of Windows Phones and see if it’s a viable ecosystem before jumping on board. The company chief voiced his thoughts on how the Android and iOS are ruling the markets now.
He also said that, with these two top platforms ruling, it would be a dead-or-alive situation for the three competitors (Windows Phone, Hewlett-Packard’s WebOS and Research In Motion’s BlackBerry) to survive. He says that they cannot exist in harmony.
With the excitement going on about Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system, it shouldn’t be a surprise if it gathers a huge initial collection when released sometime this fall encased in a new hardware. Motorola’s rival, Nokia, is also gearing up for the release of their Windows Phone this fall.
Motorola might make an attempt into the Windows Phone territory. When they do, it would be nice to see the kind of package they intend to put forward.
