Nokia Windows Phone 7 Concept

Nokia gets from Microsoft over $1 Billion over 5 years!

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.

WP7 Nokia Device Concept is Here!

After the announcement that Nokia will be collaborating with Microsoft, concepts and rumors are already on its way. According to Engadget, this will be the first Nokia handset running Windows Phone 7, possibly presented at MWC 2011. It’s hard to believe that it’s going to be that early, but who knows?

The design was actually made by Microsoft and Nokia, reminding us a Nokia N8 and C7 combination. The smartphone will come in different colors, featuring only three buttons at the bottom of the phone: Back, Windows Logo (Home screen) and Search. At the top of the phone we can notice the speaker, proximity sensor and a possible 2MP front-facing camera. The screen should be between 3.5 and 4.3 inch, supporting ClearBlack Nokia technology.

Under the hood there might be a 1GHz (Single or Dual Core) CPU, 512 MB RAM, 16 GB internal storage and Ovi Maps via Bing. Personally, I would love to see a phone like that presented at Mobile World Congress, despite the fact that in the last 2-3 years Nokia hadn’t surprise us with a decent high-end smartphone.

Nokia and Microsoft Collaboration

February 11th: Nokia & Microsoft, Allied!

Lately, we heard a lot of rumors that Nokia could cooperate with Microsoft, so finally, at February 11th, the two giants are going to work together on the Windows Phone 7. These are very good news and we’re looking forward to have the chance to see the first WP7 running Nokia device, introduced at MWC 2011.

Nokia and Microsoft Collaboration

Stephen Elop was a Microsoft director, that’s why this day’s purpose could’ve been foreseen even from the day when Nokia’s CEO has been changed. Looks like Microsoft saved Nokia from the freezing Ocean, related to the letter’s meaning. According to Steve Ballmer’s and Stephen Elop’s letter, Windows Phone will be the primary strategy on the high-end market for the Finn company.

Additionally, Bing is going to be the principal search engine on WP7 supported Nokia handsets, while Microsoft AdCenter will be the ad publisher. Nokia Maps will be integrated in the Bing’s search engine and both companies will focus mainly on cloud services.

Vic Gundtora Versus Stephen Elop (Twitter)

Vic Gundotra from Google wrote a pretty rough tweet regarding to the Nokia & Microsoft alliance: “Two turkeys don’t make an eagle“. Of course, Stephen Elop replied to this “attack“, mentioning the following: “Or this: Two bicycle makers, from Dayton Ohio, one day decided to  fly.”  (Wright brothers). Nokia’s CEO is right, who knows, maybe they are going to change something.
