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.

If you care about Nokia (as I most certainly do), you can't with a straight face advocate they stick to such a platform. If you care about MeeGo and don't give a rat's bum about Nokia - well, that's a different story.

I _used_ to care about Nokia, right before they pissed all over their promises about Qt and teamed up with Microsoft.
