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.

Here's to hoping Nokia still works on improving Symbian.

Hahahahahaha. Even lately when they were improving it they had very little to show for it, that is even more unlikely now.

But I do know what you mean. All my symbian phones last forever and do a lot with their anemic processors in comparison to my android beast.
