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.

...but I will never get tired of saying that you're making the wrong assumption with both Symbian and MeeGo.
Such a long-term strategy will screw the company well before its first results arrive in Q4 2012 or Q1 2013. Nokia will have to sell smartphones based on a dead platform for two years from now. There's no future here.
