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.

Symbian is fine to me

I have a Nokia Symbian phone, and I would guess this is unlike all the people who say Symbian is no good. I have no idea what the complains are about. I have little icons for apps, I can scroll through them. And the best thing is I can link my web contacts to the phone over the air. I would love to hear what it is that Symbian can't do as a phone OS.
