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.

This will destroy both Nokia and WP7

Nokia could do what ever they liked with Symbian and they failed big even that they had a huge advantage over Apple and Google. Now you say that Nokia will have a say in WP7 development. I don't know how Microsoft could accept that. They are giving their new platform that is not accepted so good by the users to a company that completely lost track with reality. That can lead to only one thing for WP7, and thats a total fail. And for Nokia, they are already on that very same track for the last few years.
