Nokia, as expected, has announced partnership with Microsoft that would replace Nokia’s “burning platform” Symbian with Windows Phone 7. The response was mostly negative from Symbian, Meego developers including most employees who protested the move.
Despite what people, Nokia had to take a move, either could be MeeGo, Android or WP7. Nokia chose x-Microsoft Employee’s decision.
Nokia has dropped the plans from upcoming N series phones, but has revealed new WP7 concept phone which is expected hit market within 2011. We have it on good authority that the technicolor phones on show are conceptual devices produced by the two companies. The shape of these handsets is somewhere between its recent N8 and C7 Symbian devices and there is, as usual for Nokia, a choice of sprightly colors
Even when the partnership has just been announced, the Microkia has actually spent lots of time working together and the phones are coming soon.
