What do you get when you combine a bleeding phone company with a stagnant software company? You get Nokia phones running Windows Phone 7. Nokia has been feeling the pain from competitors as of late and even lost their crown as most popular smartphone manufacturer (they’re still the large phone manufacturer, just their smartphones numbers are lower than competitor smartphone numbers). Likewise Microsoft seems to be having a problem getting people to buy phones running their Windows Phone 7 operating system.
The natural thing to emerge from this is the two companies combine to create… Hell I don’t know what they’re trying to create. I guess it makes sense when you consider Nokia’s new CEO is a former Microsoft employee.
