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.

I may be wrong but have not Google said they are going to reduce the ability to customise android and make people use their own in future?

Funny, I never noticed that. It is interesting that Nokia and Microsoft are both in Chrome's dictionary but Google isn't (neither is googol).
