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!

Member since:

Phones are now just like toasters. Buy a cheap model and throw it out when it breaks.

Well, sure, if you ignore the environmental impact of such. I personally rather buy something that lasts a lot longer and thus reduce the environmental impact, even if a mobile phone isn't all that much.

And secondly, I use a mobile phone for a lot more than just speaking and thus a really cheap model wouldn't work for me anyways.
