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.

When rumors/news popped up I go, WHAT?!!! No way... but the more I read about it all and the comments, call me crazy - I actually want a WP7 Nokia smartphone. My fav phone is Samsung Galaxy S (Version 2 coming soon) but Android, Android everywhere and it is getting tiring. Definitely a case of overexposure. I have always liked Nokia phone until lately but with WP7 on it, I find that increasingly refreshing. In fact what a great idea. I wish that Symbian didn't have to go and MeeGo get quickly into high gear.
