Nokia denies reports that it is developing an Android handset

Nokia has denied reports that it is developing a mobile phone that runs on the Google Android operating system.

According to the Guardian, the manufacturer was understood to be planning to introduce the new touch-screen handset in September at the Nokia World conference.

However, Nokia said the reports were untrue, adding: 'There is no truth to this story whatsoever. It is a well known fact that Symbian is our platform of choice for smartphones.'
 
Android is a competitor to Nokia’s Symbian software. The Android Marketplace application store is also a competitor to Nokia’s Ovi store, which has encountered a number of problems since its launch last month.
 
Several manufacturers, including Sony Ericsson, Samsung and LG, are planning to introduce handsets that run on the Android operating system in 2009.
