When it comes to smartphone cameras, Nokia has been known for putting really good cameras out there, like with the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the Lumia 1520, for example. However with its Android offerings, like the recently announced Nokia X2, it seems that Microsoft/Nokia decided to go with something low-end instead.
However could things soon be changing? Could Microsoft be getting ready for a Nokia Android smartphone with a killer camera? Well that’s what a job listing by Nokia seems to suggest. According to the job listing, it calls for an individual who is familiar with designing camera drivers. Interestingly enough, one of the skills that Microsoft is looking forward in that individual is experience with developing for Android.
At the same time it seems that Microsoft could be looking for someone who can develop across platforms. Based on the job description, it reads, “The person we are looking for will take responsibility of designing and implementation of camera drivers for different camera solutions on variety of platforms.”
Based on that, we can only assume that Microsoft is looking for someone to develop camera solutions, and that it is possible that these camera solutions could be used in their Android devices. Of course all of this is merely speculation for now, but what do you guys think? Could Microsoft be looking to step up their Android efforts?
