The Finnish company could use a boost in the States where Microsoft holds a more recognizable presence, while Microsoft could use a boost in sales of their WP7 devices. After all Nokia are known to produce pretty good phones that are only lagging behind because of their outdated Symbian operating system. Though with previous statements about how Nokia will never use Android on their phones, it doesn’t make sense for Nokia to turn to WP7 either.
After all, they already have their own operating systems – Symbian and MeeGo which they have chosen to focus on. But seeing how an ex-Microsoft is now the head of Nokia- anything could happen. What do you think? Would a Nokia/Microsoft merger help the two companies rise up against their competitors?
