Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia has been recently rumored to be on its way to come to the market with a new device that would run under Google's Android operating system, yet it seems that the company does not plan to make such a move. The only mobile operating system that is and will be on the company's chart is its Symbian platform.

Following a report from The Guardian, which cited industry insiders and stated that the world's largest handset maker planned on joining the general trend on the market and moving towards the Android platform, Nokia issued a statement earlier today and denied any connections between it and Google's mobile operating system.

“There is no truth to this story whatsoever,” the statement from the company reads. “It is a well known fact that Symbian is our platform of choice for smartphones.” According to The Guardian, said Nokia Android device was expected to surface as soon as September this year, being aimed at strengthening the company's position on the market, considering the fact that it has lost a lot of market share to its rivals lately.
