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.

It can be that Qt wasn't the wonder they thougth and was totally overrated and full of bugs? I do think so.

MeeGo phones were supposed to come out last year and the CEO has stated that they still don't have anything comparable to the first iphone.

They are having development problems, I don't see how anyone could conclude otherwise.
