Nokia and Microsoft

Nokia and Microsoft made a joint announcement today that they are creating a strategic partnership which includes (among other points):

  • Nokia will adopt Windows Phone as its principal smartphone strategy
  • Nokia will help drive the future of Windows Phone, contributing its expertise on hardware design, language support, etc.

There is much  more, covered in depth here, but this is a significant announcement for Windows Phone developers and certainly one we’ll all be keeping a close eye on.
