Windows A long list of new Windows Phone applications Nokia is developing in conjunction with partners (and a few non-Nokia ones). A number of them are going to be Nokia Lumia exclusives - I'm not sure the rest of the Windows Phone OEMs are going to like that. It'll be interesting to see how far Nokia and Microsoft can take this before everything snaps.

Nokia is already a Microsoft oriented phone manufacturer now and this exclusivity deal will just alienate the other manufactures to abandon the OS.

If Microsoft buys Nokia, it will effectively become Apple because they will control both hardware and software. It's happening already because Nokia's CEO has a close relationship with Microsoft.
