PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A lot of people are wondering why Nokia didn't choose to go with Android. How can Nokia differentiate themselves when Android is a lot more open and free than Windows Phone 7? As usual, the key to this is in the details. If you read the announcements carefully, you'll see that Microsoft offered Nokia something Google most likely didn't. Update: What a surprise. Elop just confirmed Nokia has a special deal with Microsoft. Whereas HTC, Samsung, and so on are not allowed to customise WP7 - Nokia is, further confirming my theory.

HTC, LG and Samsung will be faster than Nokia. Bet?
Nokia has always been on the slow side of things.

MS will involve all its customers (remember they have to pay to get WP7) in the development. Elop is just trying to sell his capitulation.

We will see.
