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.

I think that anybody who has used WP7 for a period of time, will surely like it a lot & will be biased. I've been using the platform (HD7) since December & I have nothing but really good things to say about it. I like the transitions so much that even today when I see those animations on pressing the back button, I give a faint smile.
