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.

DEC, SGI, and Novell killed themselves off for reasons having nothing to do with Microsoft, and acobar (and those that uprated his comment) knows it. But I'm sure he/she copy-pastes that lame comment over and over (it reads like regurgitated talking points) at various message boards and gets dozens of uprates from the seemingly mindless Microsoft bashers.
