Default Nokia & Microsoft: We Called It in 2008

<p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1297455715.usr1.jpg" /></p><p>Darius Wey reminded me of <a href="http://forums.thoughtsmedia.com/f399/april-fools-nokia-ventures-into-new-territory-n97w-powered-windows-mobile-88380.html" target="_blank">his post from back in 2008 about Nokia</a> releasing a Windows Mobile phone - sure, it was an April Fool's Day post, but even back then I felt Nokia would <a href="http://forums.thoughtsmedia.com/f399/april-fools-nokia-ventures-into-new-territory-n97w-powered-windows-mobile-88380-2.html#post681749" target="_blank">one day be Microsoft's partner</a>. The world has been moving toward consolidated smartphone platforms for years now, and I felt it was only a matter of time until Nokia partnered up with Microsoft. Back then Android didn't exist yet as a viable platform, so it was almost their only option. They could have gone with Android, but the question is could they have stood out amongst all the competition? In Microsoft they found a partner that was willing to work with them. I look forward to seeing what happens with this partnership this year and next.</p>
