Nokia Microsoft Handshake

Here is what we think may happen if Nokia takes two long years to get Windows Phone 7 on their devices:

  • Third party Nokia app developers will be puzzled as to when to start developing on Windows Phone 7 platform.
  • These developers will also be confused on building a successful exit strategy from Symbian app development for high-end Nokia devices which are currently powered by Symbian.
  • Within two years Android and iOS will have scaled up to new heights and will have reached a large number of users.
