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!

Nice in theory, but I have never seen updates available for any Nokia phone I've ever owned.

Of course I have never bought fancy high-end smartphones, but still.. No updates, no fixes for glaring bugs.. That's is not a good track record

Funny, I've owned three nokia phones (6301, 25xx, and my current E63), two of them were in the lower end, and at least two of them have received some updates.

You must have been unlucky.
