Google VP snipes at Nokia with turkey trash talk

Google VP of engineering Vic Gundotra has made what seems to be a dig at Nokia ahead of the company's Capital Markets Day event on Friday, February 11, taking to Twitter to suggest that "#Feb Two turkeys do not make an Eagle". The snub would certainly appear to suggest that any talks between Nokia and Google haven't resulted in the Finnish company adopting Android as its platform salvation.

Android had been one of the persistent suggestions - alongside Windows Phone 7 - for a potential OS switch for Nokia, on the back of CEO Stephen Elop's comments that the company has to do better in the ongoing ecosystem war. Whether this is Gundotra's attempt to criticise both Nokia and Microsoft, or Nokia's two existing platforms Symbian and MeeGo, remains to be seen.
