Verizon CTO says they don’t ‘need’ Nokia Microsoft devices

• 15/02/2011


On the heels of the Nokia-Microsoft partnership announcement, we hear from Verizon CTO Tony Melone that they aren’t overly concerned, nor excited about the Microkia news, or the devices they may be launching. According to Tony, Verizon doesn’t need them, as they are quite happy with the other 3 that actually hold major market share, those being Android, iOS, and BlackBerry platforms.

Not a great place to be for Microkia, at the bottom of the ‘wanted’ list from Verizon. This is what Tony Melone had to say;

right now the three OS players we see for our network are Android, Apple, and RIM.

Verizon‘s tune may change of course if WP7 starts gaining some more market, but it seems that’s quite far down the road from now.
