PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Nokia is set to market their first Windows Phone 8 hardware differently, according to a report by the Financial Times. The manufacturer will be entering into partnerships with a handful of EU carriers to exclusively launch their next generation Windows Phone. The newspaper states the company has already entered into talks with a number of operators including France Telecom." Not to be a spoilsport or anything, but doesn't carrier exclusivity kind of rely on people actually, you know, desperately wanting a certain device? It's like Nokia's executives live in this fairytale land where people are actually buying Lumias and plan their actions accordingly. It's uncanny.

We can't know yet - possibly Windows 8 and Metro will be a success. Then Nokia may have made the right choice and there phones will be flying off the shelves. I remember when Apple looked dead in the water, getting money from Microsoft and now look at them. I'd like to see another competitor to Apple.

Did I write the above? I'm very sceptical about Windows 8, looks horrid to me but then I don't like smart phones much.
