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.

And they were nothing on Client/Server, as they were nothing on 3D expertise, as they were nothing on Server infra-structure. But used very well the "underdog" image and turned the table. They looked for the right things: expertize, inter-communication and association to be viewed as a trustful and capable player. Once they got what they wanted ..., it is history now.
