Motorola already stated that it was open to Microsoft and its new Windows Phone platform back in October last year, at the time of Redmond’s OS release. More recently, the company’s CEO has reconfirmed the interest towards the Metro-platform.
Speaking at the Oppenheimer Technology and Communications Conference, CEO Sanjay Jha said that “clearly, all of our focus today is on Android”. That aside, he also stated that the phone maker is “completely open to the notion of Windows as a platform” and that a Microsoft partnership could be possible given Redmond signs a deal with Motorola that is similar to the one they currently have with Nokia.
Despite the fact that interest is there, CEO Sanjay Jha also mentioned that Motorola will evaluate just how viable Windows Phone was, as a platform. In his vision, besides Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android, it is questionable which one of the remainder platforms (Microsoft’s Windows Phone, HP’s Palm webOS, RIM’s BlackBerry OS) will survive.
