Nokia and Microsoft to Join hands next friday! – WP7 on NOKIA?
The New York Times is reporting, that, in a strategic shift of Platform from Symbian to either Android or Microsofts Windows Phone 7. The Finnish giant has chosen the latter. It was high time when the company drops its hopes on the only thing slowing down once a superpower in the mobile phone trade. Symbian was/is and may remain outdated, period. The company’s move may come as a welcome to its investors worldwide and to the millions of its users globally.
There is a high chance and it’s entirely possible they could be ramping up to do that again, sharing apps and services between Windows Phone 7 and Symbian / MeeGo.
But, the biggest question lies in the concept of Nokia becoming another hardware-only manufacturer, and surviving in a market that is already ahead in leaps and bounds, with self sustaining companies like Samsung, HTC and even LG. It is becoming more and more difficult to predict the future of this legend. Nevertheless, there is still hope, with the new changes coming to Symbian this year. What may be the most exciting year in the history of Technology has just begun!
