Nokia’s Deal to Benefit Windows

Why should Nokia join hands with drowning Microsoft? Experts predict Nokia’s deal with Microsoft to benefit software giant rather than helping the cell phone giant to rise. Nokia, the Finnish multinational mobile manufacturer went into a strategic alliance with Windows in February 2011. It makes Nokia adopt Windows Phone 7 as Nokia’s primary smartphone platform, while the Symbian is sidelined for mid-range smartphones. This deal has raised many eye brows in the tech industry.
