According to Bloomberg, after the alliance between Microsoft and Nokia some time ago, the company located at Sillicon Valley will pay off over $1 Billion over 5 years for Nokia. The Finn manufacturer promised us that they look forward to launch low-end (or mid-end) Nokia Windows Phone 7 handsets with multi-color cases and reduced hardware capacity.
It would be pretty interesting due to the fact that at this time, there is no mid-range or low-end WP7 device available. Last days we saw a Sony Ericsson Xperia 7 prototype, however, I’m sure the handset will be (if the rumors are true) a high-end type. Microsoft’s financial help is welcome, because nowadays, Nokia is facing grave problems which could even bankrupt the company.
I hope these “dark days” will past over and we will see Nokia shine once again.
