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!

Seriously? You decided to go with the only modern mobile platform that does not support HTML5, as well as the platform that is unlikely to support WebM anytime soon?

They're more likely to support WebM than iOS. On top of that, I'm not buying Android until Google fixes its upgrade policy. The Nexus One doesn't have 2.3 yet, and I'm afraid that if I buy the Nexus S, I'll end up in a similar situation. A no-go for me.
