is Nokia & MS are ready to launch WP7?
Please update, thanks
A lot of people are wondering why Nokia didn't choose to go with Android. How can Nokia differentiate themselves when Android is a lot more open and free than Windows Phone 7? As usual, the key to this is in the details. If you read the announcements carefully, you'll see that Microsoft offered Nokia something Google most likely didn't. What a surprise. Elop just confirmed Nokia has a special deal with Microsoft. Whereas HTC, Samsung, and so on are not allowed to customise WP7 - Nokia is, further confirming my theory. Windows Phone 7 is a new and young platform, and while reviews have been very positive, we don't know much yet of consumer response. Carriers and device makers seem lukewarm at best - HTC, Samsung, and LG are much more interested in Android than in Windows Phone 7, and I can't really blame them. At the same time, Android is already a major and established player, bigger than iOS and - depending on the figures - bigger than Symbian. And Google got there without Nokia's help. In other words, Google doesn't need Nokia, which means Nokia's negotiation position with Google is not a good one. In such negotiations, Nokia would need Android - but Android wouldn't need Nokia. During the Q&A during Nokia's Capital Market Day, Elop said that Android did not allow them to differentiate enough. This seems weird, since Android is considerably more open and free than Windows Phone 7. However, I think what he meant is that Nokia would not have a say in the actual development direction of Android. And this is where Microsoft comes in. The press release makes it clear that Nokia will get a considerable say in Windows Phone 7's development, and this is the crux of the matter. With Windows Phone 7, Nokia can differentiate from the inside-out, whereas with Android, all they could do was be at the mercy of Google and develop skins. Nokia had a much stronger negotiation position while dealing with Microsoft than while dealing with Google, and as such, Nokia managed to get a lot of influence not just after a new version is released, but also during its development. And this is why Nokia went with Windows Phone 7. And it makes sense, too. No phone maker currently has the kind of influence over Android that Nokia will have over Windows Phone 7. In other words, while Nokia will no longer develop their smartphone operating system in- house, they still have more influence over their OS than Samsung, HTC, and LG do. And that's the key. A lot of people are sad that MeeGo will not be Nokia's main platform. For MeeGo, this is bad news. For Nokia, however, this is great news. MeeGo's development is incredibly slow, and would maybe lead to just 1 (one) (!) device this year. That's not enough. That's too late. If you care about Nokia (as I most certainly do), you can't with a straight face advocate they stick to such a platform. If you care about MeeGo and don't give a rat's bum about Nokia - well, that's a different story. As far Symbian is concerned - it's been a dead end ever since the iPhone was released. We're four years down the line, and Nokia still hasn't managed to create a compelling touch-based interface for this otherwise decent mobile operating system. While I'm all for as much competition as possible, I can also see when a platform has run its course. Symbian is done for, it's dead, and I'm glad it's getting buried. It's a relic. I'm hoping the open source community can keep it alive for us enthusiasts, but for Nokia's future, it's a liability, not a strength. I'm incredibly excited about this deal. I've fallen in love with Windows Phone 7, but at the same time, I was a little scared of its prospects since it didn't really have a truly dedicated phone maker backing it. My HD7 is a great device, but nor HTC, nor Samsung, nor LG really care about WP7 all that much. This deal with Nokia will ensure the survival of the platform, and that makes me happy. It will also ensure Nokia's survival (I'm pretty convinced about that), and in the long run, that's a great thing. They would've drowned in the Android world, they would've sunk into irrelevance waiting for MeeGo, and they would've faced the eternal great hardware/bad software-problems with Symbian.

And yeah! My phone does a better job in emulators...I've got more physical buttons to play the games. He can't throw a power punch in Tekken with multitouch but I can...because I use physical buttons along with touchscreen.

Nokia has lost its capability of innovating?
Take a look at the Nokia N9! It has received positive views and comments from experts all over the internet.
Its UI is simple, beautiful and no lags at all. And the device...itself is beautiful too. And the Windows Phone Mango has also got positive review from Engadget...and still you fans of Android or more likely Droid-hosts...say that Android is best! Take a good look at the Mango. It's just awesome. And a few good apps are enough. I don't need thousands......and useless too. I currently own a Nokia 5233/5228, and I don't have a PC. I write my blogs on Blogger through this Symbian^1 cheapest Smartphone...well, wordpress sux for mobile publishing because I can't drag and drop the gadgets on it. And I've used my friend's LG Optimus One. It's UI is good but I didn't like the camera it is too slow to compete against my 2MP cam and also its quality. Well...the apps on it look good too but they do the same job as on my Phone. And it has got a GPU too and my phone hasn't. I can play Toonwarz, Ironsight, Armageddon Squadron, Raging Tunder, Waveblazer, Global Race without any lag at a bit lower grafix but on Android with a 600MHz processor and a dedicated GPU....the are too laggy and unplayable. Wtf? My processor is 434 MHz and no GPU...and it gives better performance.
Conclusion: Android is like a beautiful girl who is a power hungry monster from inside.
Or....in short.....Android sucks!
[deleted post]LoL sorry I'm not US Citizen I'm a Mexican (well in fact Mexico is North America so we are american too :D ) living at the border with US....but we expend more time in the US than Mexico...sorry about grammar :D
What I really want, is a seamless sync between the Zune player in Nokia's Sea Ray and the Zune music player on my laptop. I just hope they add a customizable equalizer and more output filters.

Ashura, 03 Aug 2011so far i have used 4 diferent android phones 3 mid range and one high end and i have never exp... moreWell this wasn't my case...
2 Androids with problems (1 returned to carrier 4 times and at the end give me a full refund), 2 Tablets with weird errors, using from 2.2 to 3.1 :(
I had less errors on my old phones, even my iPhone don't have a single error, or hangs or slowdown, I don't give my Androids down BUT I wish had less errors, more frecuen errors in my case are the memory managment, the battery, the compatibility between apps and some weird GPS/WiFI drops, one when I was on the Arizona Freeway I trie to get GPS and the damn thing frozes and then turned off when finally turned on the phone never came up and get stuck on the initial screen, so not phone for me in the middle of the desert. :( Has to take it to carrier and they give me another replacemnt (3rd in 4 months)..
No body is perfect I know BUT there are more errors than I expected on a $550 dlls phone....in that area iOS or even the old WP7.0 are less problematic....but this is only my experience....
