This is big, really big and hopefully will lessen my hate for both Nokia’s smartphones and the Microsoft Windows Phone 7 alike. Today Nokia officially announced its partnership with Microsoft to port the Windows Phone 7 as its primary mobile platform.
Nokia definitely needed this change for it had been wasting its line of great hardware with the Symbian and its MeeGo platform is still quite a long way from practicality, though Nokia has ambitious plans for it. The marriage will bring the much promising Windows Phone 7 platform to Nokia’s devices and Nokia fans, and even those who want a solid mobile operating system to give them more on the device than just making calls, messaging or taking great pictures. They will have the XBox Live, to add a great gaming experience as well.
I look forward to a great year ahead and I might just make a switch to Nokia or Windows Phone 7, if they both come bundled in one package! Will you?
