Nokia: We’re Not Building an Android Phone

A recent job listing on Nokia’s website suggests that possibly, somewhere down the line, it was planning to build an Android handset.


The job listing called for a senior software engineer with Linux experience – which would suggest a foray into Android. But pundits may have overlooked something: Nokia recently launched its HERE Maps application for iOS and Android. And that’s where it wants the senior engineer to work.

A Nokia employee recently posted a tweet to clear up the confusion. “Our recently posted job is linked to our HERE Maps support for other platforms, including iOS and Android,” Nokia spokesperson Doug Dawson tweeted. Well, looks like we won’t be seeing a Lumia 920 running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean anytime soon.
