What Does the Nokia and Microsoft Partnership Mean?
If you’re reading Engadget or Gizmodo daily, you probably already know about it. Nokia and Microsoft has just announced a new partnership, but what’s all the fuzz about?
The biggest thing about this, is that Windows Phone 7 is going to be Nokia’s new primary OS for phones. WP7 is the mobile operating system which Microsoft introduced about a year ago.
That basicially means Symbian, used in earlier Nokia phones, is dead.
This partnership also means they’ll be working together in other ways. Bing will be the primary search engine on Nokia phones, and Microsoft will get WP7 out to a lot more customers.
Here’s a video from Nokia and Microsoft:
I personally think this is one of the best things Nokia could do. The last few years have been tough for them because of the competition from Apple and Android. Now, they’re finally getting rid of the terrible Symbian OS and goes new ways.
Gizmodo has just published an article: “Why Didn’t Nokia Use Android? Because That Would Be Giving Up“. It’s very interesting, check it out!
I’ve owned an iPhone for 2 years, so I’m not a big Android fan myself. I do, however, think that this is very interesting, and my next phone could actually be a Nokia phone. I never thought I would say that again.
