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.
