If the Windows Phone move doesn't end up working out, Nokia says it's pretty much over.
A new report suggests a very out-of-the-ordinary move for Nokia.
Nokia announced a handful of new phones today, including the first to be powered by its own Meego operating system.
It seems like everyone's in on the tablet wars these days.
So when will Windows Phone 7 start taking over exactly?
After failing to attract, well, anybody in the US with its high-end smartphones, Nokia has opted for a different route.
The first Nokia phone to run Windows Phone 7 instead of Nokia's long-running Symbian platform is reportedly already in development.
When the news broke that Nokia will be creating a new smartphone based on Windows Phone 7 instead its own first-party Symbian OS, many questioned why it would go with WP7 and not the more popular Android.
It could be the beginning of the end for Nokia's first-party mobile operating system, as it looks like the company is ready to ditch Symbian in favor of Windows Phone 7 for future smartphones.
It looks like pigs can fly and hell has frozen over, because Nokia has hinted that it might actually ditch its own mobile operating system to make a phone that runs on Android.
Well this may be it, folks. The X7, which was supposed to be one of the phones to bring Nokia back from the edge of the grave in countries like the US, will not be coming out here after all, thanks to the fact that carriers didn't seem at all interested.
For almost 30 years, Nokia has been a leader in the mobile phone market and has exclusively used its own internally developed software to power them. But now, that's changing.
Nokia's hope to regain some relevance in the post-iPhone, post-Android mobile world has just taken another blow as the company decided to push back the release of its coveted E7 smartphone to next year.
Although its ability to meet demand for cheap phones is helping keep it well above water, Nokia has axes 3% of its workforce as it tries to restructure itself to meet the growing global mobile market.
Nokia has launched a new high-end smartphone on its latest operating system that promises to be sexy, socially connected, and worthy of a spot alongside Android and iPhone.
The N8 phone, which Nokia says is its most pre-ordered device ever, is now heading to customers and retailers across the country.
Nokia has crowned Stephen Elop, a former Microsoft employee and someone with a strong knowledge of the US software market, as its newest chief executive officer. However, the headlines aren't all hearts and roses for Elop.
Nokia is preparing for a global media event next week, where it will reportedly unveil a number of new smartphones to compete with Android and the iPhone. The first known device will be called the E7.
In an effort to find its way back to a solid footing in the US marketplace, Nokia has reportedly acquired a company specializing in mobile research and analysis.
Nokia's been working on its new Meego platform for a while now, and details about the first device to use it should be coming out any day now, but until then we have to rely on stuff like these photos that were recently leaked.
