We heard yesterday from Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha that Motorola was open to using Windows Phone 7 on one of their handsets. It turns out the feeling is mutual, with Steve Ballmer saying they were â€œexcited to come into agreement with any company that is willing to collaborate with them as well.â€
The Microsoft CEO made the comment at a Press Conference staged by BitKOM, a German industry group, after being asked directly if they were willing to form ties with Motorola.
While the statement could be interpreted as Microsoft being willing to take any comers, we do know Microsoft has said in the past they will be more selective about Windows Phone 7 OEMs, and that Jha had also planned to use Windows Phone 7 in the past, but was forced to use Android due to Microsoft delays.
Do we smell love in the air?
