In a recent interview with the Financial Times, Nokia Executive Vice President Anssi Vanjoki compared to move towards Android to "peeing in your pants to stay warm in the cold of winter". Vanjoki claims Android is only a short-term solution for smartphone makers, adding that it won't be viable in the long-term as it will become harder to differentiate between handsets as more manufacturers join the Android bandwagon:
Vanjoki states that smartphone manufacturers are flocking to Android, seeing it as a panacea to help boost profits. However, he states that using Android is only a short-term solution, and it won't be viable in the long-term as more manufacturers hop on the bandwagon and it becomes harder to differentiate between handsets.
Vanjoki bluntly states that manufacturers who use Android are like Finnish boys who "pee in their pants" to stay warm in the cold of winter.
