salman, 23 May 2011i think by nokia and windows merge nokia will share its ovi store with windows 7 only for noki... morethey cant merge the apps together they are both written in totally different programming languages, Nokia apps are written in Java & Windows Phone 7 is written in C#. Also the button layouts and controls in each interface is different. If anything all nokia apps would have to be recreated for windows phone 7 if this was to happen, I can only see them taking their most popular apps and working on them ones
TSH, 10 May 2011Looks like the Nokia alliance is bearing fruit. One thing I think we should remember is tha... moreyeah but I'm on my 2nd update in less than a year owning my SGS I9000. I have a friend with the LG WP7. I got to play with his for a couple of hours and there is no comparison to what the 'driod does'. Good free aps are a non issue in the Android Marketplace, and hard to come by on WP7. The customization level is unmatched and what hasn't been already said about the display? I thought WP7 was going to be more, but it doesn't seem to be the case.

Symbian = cheap + unreliable
WP7 = expensive + unreliable
It wont take a lot of algorithms to figure that one out :)
i think by nokia and windows merge nokia will share its ovi store with windows 7 only for nokia phone. So this will settel their problen of less application in windows market.
MJ, 10 May 2011you definitely haven't try any WP7, its not slow at all.WP7 tricks you with all those transition animations. Takes ages to do anything, you gotta wait for the menu to flip away, then wait for the next screen to flip in.
Looks like the Nokia alliance is bearing fruit.
One thing I think we should remember is that it's not as though Android updates don't take this long to release - we just hear about them a lot closer to their actual release date, so it seems faster.
better make windows 7 for phone not windows phone it will kick another mobile os :D i want play pc games on my phone like company of heroes , call of duty series with multiplayer online that will really awesome :)
Anonymous, 10 May 2011srsly..i was gonna buy windows mobile 7 but the multitask update is taking too longWindows phone 7 multitasks. But only for native apps, so IE can be downloading a webpage while you are reading your emai. But it doesn't support third party multi-task. Mango will do it in a smart way

where do you think that the mapping data will come from?
Would it be Navteq by any chance?
Who owns Navteq?
Would that be Nokia by any chance?
So in reality it will probably just be Ovi maps by another name, which is no bad thing IMO.
'Should this turn out to be true it looks just like Google's strategy with the Google Maps voice-guided navigation.'
Which in turn would be like Ovi maps from Nokia, no?
srsly..i was gonna buy windows mobile 7 but the multitask update is taking too long
