PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Now that the dust has settled after Stephen Elop's big announcement on the 11th February 2011, many have come to realise that actually Nokia's move towards a a new Ecosystem is not as bad as what they thought. [...] But what does all this mean for the Nokia Developers? When the proposed partnership with Microsoft was announced, many felt betrayed and worried about their future, but after having heard and assisted a number of workshops at the Nokia Developer Day at this years Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, earlier this month, their outlook towards the new ecosystem has taken a 180 degree turn and are now looking at the proposed partnership with a lot more enthusiasm, recognising the potential it will bring them in the coming months."

Mac OS X was outsold for months on end by Mac OS 9.

The situation isn't exactly analogous. Apple grew its market share because they were able to deliver something Microsoft couldn't, a nicely packaged hardware+software bundle that worked out of the box and had a great user experience. However, Android handset makers are able to customize the OS (and, arguably, to a much larger degree than to which Nokia will be allowed to customize WP7), and therefore do not suffer from the disadvantage that PC OEMs have.
