It was a silly rumor for most of the weekend, that somehow Nokia was going to do a touch friendly Android handset this year. Not happening, not now and not ever. The rumors were so persistent, (thanks to the echo chamber that we actually got a flat denial from Nokia this morning). No surprise. For better or for worse (and mostly for worst) Nokia is heavily tied to S60 and the underlying Symbian platform. That’s not something that’s likely to change but it also doesn’t bode very well for Nokia in the future.
