    Symbian fans were given a swift slap to the face,
    last month, when Nokia and Microsoft announced their partnership for Windows Phone 7 devices.
    Although Windows Phone 7 is steadily gaining both recognition and adoption, Nokia's choice still
    came as a surprise. During an interview at the CeBIT trade show in
    Hanover, Vodafone Germany's CEO expressed an
    optimistic outlook for the deal between Microsoft
    and Nokia. Jan Geldmacher said that "We are
    looking very much forward to the new products
    that will come from this cooperation between Microsoft and Nokia." And this kind of optimism
    from carriers will be essential to their success. Geldmacher went on to express his impressions of
    the market: "The market is dominated right now by
    Apple, and Android is picking up fast. RIM, in the
    enterprise field, is a very very important solution as
    well." And while his previous comments might
    sound like the market is already flooded, Geldmacher explained that "a 4th operating system with Nokia and Microsoft will be a very positive thing for the market overall." But we have to ask: is a "positive thing for the
    market" the same as a positive thing for Nokia and
    their customers? Nokia was right to avoid the
    crowded bandwagon that is Android, but will they
    get lost in the milieu entirely by adopting Windows Phone 7?
