Android apps running seamlessly on rival platforms could well be the order of the day, if Myriad Group has its way with Alien Dalvik. The new software - initially for MeeGo, but with plans to offer it on other OSes - will supposedly allow OEMs, handset developers and carriers to load software coded for Android onto non-Android phones.

Nokia: E7 sales expectations “by far the most important” in 2011

Nokia may have promised a MeeGo device sometime in 2011, but the company is still looking to Symbian for the bulk of its sales this year. According to Nokia VP Ukko Lappalainen, "the E7 is by far the most important model for us this year when looking at sales expectations," referring to the QWERTY slider Nokia announced was shipping in select markets earlier today.

Nokia CEO weighing “Finnish talent” value as board hangs in balance

Rumors of an imminent cull across the Nokia board continue to make headlines, with CEO Stephen Elop reportedly considering "how much he wants to keep Finnish talent in the leadership team" in what's being described as an essential play "to take advantage of the North American consumer." Following initial reports over the weekend of the impending executive shake-up - which could see executive VP of phones Mary MacDowell and executive VP of markets Niklas Savander both lose their jobs - the WSJ has stepped in with further sources claiming Elop is prioritizing a North American focus for Nokia moving forward.

Nokia commits to “embrace change” as WP7 rumors bump shares

Nokia commits to “embrace change” as WP7 rumors bump shares

Speculation over Nokia's potential adoption of an OS other than Symbian and MeeGo continues, with the company's share price buoyed amid rumors of a surprise announcement at the Finnish company's pre-MWC investors event and after a European analyst publicly called for the adoption of Windows Phone 7. Triggered by CEO Stephen Elop's recent comments that Nokia "must build, catalyse or join a competitive ecosystem," interpreted by many as a sign that the company might be reconsidering its dedication to current platform strategy, rumors of a WP7 or Android announcement have been little quelled by Nokia's tight-lipped secrecy ahead of the event next Friday.

MeeGo superphone bug report tips 1.6GHz Atom & HSPA+

MeeGo superphone bug report tips 1.6GHz Atom & HSPA+

A MeeGo bug report could have spilled the beans on an upcoming flagship smartphone, with the promise of a 1.6GHz Intel processor, 854 x 480 display, 21Mbps HSPA+ support and NFC. Over at the Maemo forums they've dug through the chip references and come up with a lengthy hardware feature list that suggests Nokia CEO Stephen Elop's comments on building, catalysing or joining "a competitive ecosystem" may well be, as we suggested, a sign that the Finnish company intends to participate in the smartphone spec-sheet "arms race".

Squint, or you'll miss it.

MeeGo UI update goes covert ahead of “feature complete” reveal

MeeGo UI update goes covert ahead of “feature complete” reveal

Nokia is secretly readying an updated UI for MeeGo devices, with the Qt developers responsible for the new UI components for Qt Quick announcing that, for the moment, they will not be pushing out MeeGo changes to the public. The decision comes as the new MeeGo UI starts "to become feature complete"; Nokia won't confirm any timescale at this stage, but with MWC 2011 approaching and new CEO Stephen Elop making his first real public debut to talk about the company's strategies moving forward, we wouldn't be surprised if this was intended to keep a Barcelona reveal under wraps.

Nokia “must build, catalyse or join a competitive ecosystem” says CEO

Nokia “must build, catalyse or join a competitive ecosystem” says CEO

Nokia needs to "change faster" to keep up with the cellphone market, CEO Stephen Elop has admitted, but it's his ecosystem comments during the company's financial results call that have tongues wagging. The Nokia/Android/Windows Phone 7 speculation has proven sturdily resilient to common sense and the Finns' own denials, and Elop's suggestion that Nokia "must build, catalyse or join a competitive ecosystem" is unlikely to do much bar fueling the rumors.
