Nokia And Microsoft Get Into Bed Officially

  • by

The rumors were flying around the whole internet about Nokia moving to Windows Phone 7, haters, lovers, fanboys, fangirls, employees, everyone has been pretty much going on about this for a few days now, and to be honest I was kind of sick about it all. So much, that I basically ignored everything.

Nokia

But now it’s Official I’m starting to wonder about a few things;

How will this effect both companies and more importantly; Me. Yes that’s the big question here. I’ve personally long moved over to Android as my choice of mobile platform. Whilst on the whole I am satisfied with the whole OS, the choice of hardware is frankly not up there with the likes of Nokia and Sony Ericsson, in particular the camera. This is one major flaw in every Android handset, the camera quality on every device out there in the market is absolute crap. This leads me to start dreaming; a Nokia N8 running on Windows Phone 7. Surely not, well, 6 months ago perhaps, but in 6 months time; why the heck not? Imagine the possibilities.Read More »Nokia And Microsoft Get Into Bed Officially
