Motorola CEO 'Open' to Windows Phone Relationship

Sanjay Jha says he would be interested in considering a deal similar to Nokia's.

PCMagazine: At a conference on Tuesday, Motorola Mobility CEO Sanjay Jha entertained the possibility of Motorola smartphones running Microsoft's Windows Phone operating system. "I would have to consider whether defocusing from Android to Windows will be the right thing for us to do, but if the capabilities on Windows are such that that is the right thing for us, I think we will consider it," Jha said.

He added, "Nokia seems to be disproportionately well positioned in that ecosystem. I actually don't understand that deal with precision, but if our position in that ecosystem could be made to be somewhat equivalent, that would be an interesting option for us to consider."

However, Jha tempered his remarks by emphasizing his company's ongoing commitment to Android, saying, "Let me cut the words down to the following: focus today is Android."
