Windows Phone deal is good news for Microsoft. But what about Nokia?(Read article summary)
Windows Phone software will replace Symbian on all Nokia phones, reps for Nokia and Microsoft said today.
Windows Phone 7 software will soon power all Nokia phones, reps for both Microsoft and Nokia announced today, effectively making the global cell phone market a "three horse race" between the Apple iPhone OS, Google's Android, and Microsoft-Nokia. According to Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, Nokia phones will now run the Windows Phone OS, instead of the in-house Symbian OS; in exchange, Nokia would help Microsoft improve its hardware.
Bing, meanwhile, will become the default search engine on Nokia handsets.
