PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's official. Dismissed as a silly rumour by many, Nokia and Micorsoft have just announced a very comprehensive partnership in which Windows Phone 7 will become Nokia's prime smartphone platform. It goes a lot deeper than that, though. Update: Qt will not be available for Windows Phone 7. Qt will remain the development platform for MeeGo and Symbian. Update II: During its Capital Market Day event, Elop confirmed Nokia will not make a comprehensive MeeGo product line. It will be a platform to learn from, but it won't become a competitive platform. Update III: Android was not an option because it would be difficult to differentiate there. Update IV: There will be 'substantial reductions in employment' in Finland and around the world. Also, before I forget, thanks Engadget for the live-blogging where I get this stuff from!

I don't hate Microsoft and I love Silverlight, but I like Linux and Qt much more. I was really looking forward to a meego device and have been a loooong time Nokia user and supporter. No more...Android for me (despite my dislike of various elements in android).

And just to add that if I get a wp7 phone ever it will not be a Nokia phone. I feel to betrayed by the Meego hope Nokia inspired in me
