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.

Most of that isn't soo true. I can only speak for a few places, but my last job was rewritting all those old VB applications to .Net WinForm applications.

I have a friend who writes a lot of .Net Desktop application and .Net web application for enterprises. .Net is quite big here in Minneapolis/St.Paul area.
