A recent rumor from Nokia insider Eldar Murtazin claims that Nokia is currently in the process of working on a deal with Microsoft that would allow for them to utilize Windows Phone 7 on their upcoming unlocked cell phone. The devices had previously used Symbian, but the operating system has not received good marks from experts or customers in reviews, and it is clear that Nokia will have to move away from Symbian if they would like to remain competitive in the market.
The CEO of Nokia, Stephen Elop has reportedly been conversing with officials at Microsoft for the past few months and has spoken with them about the possibility of them launching a Windows Phone 7 device in the near future.
Regardless of the decision that they make, Nokia still has a large place in the marketplace. Them adding a partnership with Microsoft into the mix would be to the benefit of both companies and would allow both of them to grow. Windows Phone 7 is known for being meticulous when it comes to security. Their WGA software will lock the phone down if it detects that you are messing with any of the inner-working software that runs the operating system, and Symbian is an operating system that is obviously on the decline.
It will be interesting to see what kind of devices Nokia releases. They have never been at the forefront of the higher-end devices, but a new partnership with a growing operating system might force them to look to more advanced devices in the future.
The rumor also stated that they were not just discussing the possibility of a single phone, but instead a line of phones that would be sold through the various channels that Nokia has at their disposal. It would be an interesting partnership to say the least. Both companies have made huge gains in the mobile market in recent years and it only seems right that they meet in the middle to continue their surge.
