Google attacks struggling Nokia ahead of Phone 7 deal

Nokia, Microsoft deal attacked by Google tweet

Following on from Nokia’s “We are standing on a burning platform” comments earlier today, Google has kicked its competitor whilst down with a derogatory tweet over the mooted upcoming Nokia and Microsoft venture.

With the formerly dominant Finnish phone manufacturer struggling to forge a stronghold in the smartphone market it is widely believed Nokia will unveil a partnership with Microsoft this Friday, February 11th, that will see the N8 maker producing Windows Phone 7 handsets in the future.

On this potential merger between two of its competitors, Google’s VP of Engineering, Vic Gundotra, announced to his fleet of Twitter followers: “Two Turkeys do not make an Eagle” opening with the hashtag #feb11 in reference to the expected announcement.

As well as attacking the imminent partnership unveiling Gundotra’s tweet all but ends rumours that Nokia was looking to product Android powered handsets in order to change its fortunes in the ever growing smartphone market.

Which would you rather see come from Nokia, an Android or a Windows Phone 7 powered smartphone? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
