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.

Come someone please explain to me the one meego device by the end of the year thing?

Is meego 1.2 going to be really that feature incomplete that they won't be able to ship a handset with it when it releases in april?

Assuming it is, and that this entire time nokia hasn't had a handset design in the works for meego that they can just slap windows phone 7 on, then don't they still need to design a handset for windows phone 7?

Do they really expect to be able to make such a huge paradigm shift and ship more than one phone before the end of the year using windows phone 7?
