Astazi Nokia a tinut o conferinta de presa in care a anuntat oficial incheierea unui parteneriat cu Microsoft prin care va aduce Windows Phone 7 pe smartphone-urile proprii dar odata cu el si cateva dintre cele mai populare servicii oferite de Microsoft. Cele 2 companii au incheiat acest parteneriat strategic benefic pentru ambele parti : Nokia va avea in sfarsit un sistem de operare decent pentru utilizatorii sai iar Microsoft va avea parte de o piata de desfacere extraordinar de mare. Atat Nokia cat si Microsoft au de castigat din aceasta experienta, dar sa nu uitam ca utilizatorii conteaza cel mai mult.

Microsoft va oferi Windows Phone 7 impreuna cu servicii precum Bing, Xbox Live sau Office iar Nokia va veni cu suportul hardware si propria retea de distributie a terminalelor Windows Phone 7. Vin vremuri grele pentru Apple care acum are de dus o lupta atat cu Google/Android cat si cu Nokia/Microsoft si Windows Phone 7. Apple nu va oferi producatorilor iOS pentru dezvoltarea de smartphone-uri iar din pacate acum Apple duce un razboi pe care nu il poate castiga. Windows Phone 7 va “exploda” de indata ce primele smartphone-uri Nokia vor fi disponibile, asta desi alti producatori mari au deja terminale pe piata. Nokia este un brand vechi, un brand de renume, un brand recunoscut si un brand in care foarte multi au incredere. Asta conteaza foarte mult dar la fel de mult va conta si numarul de aplicatii din Windows MarketPlace, deci Microsoft are de convins foarte multi developeri sa faca aplicatii pentru propria platforma.

Iata cateva detalii despre parteneriat :

  • Nokia would adopt Windows Phone as its principal smartphone strategy, innovating on top of the platform in areas such as imaging, where Nokia is a market leader.
  • Nokia would help drive the future of Windows Phone. Nokia would contribute its expertise on hardware design, language support, and help bring Windows Phone to a larger range of price points, market segments and geographies.
  • Nokia and Microsoft would closely collaborate on joint marketing initiatives and a shared development roadmap to align on the future evolution of mobile products.
  • Bing would power Nokia’s search services across Nokia devices and services, giving customers access to Bing’s next generation search capabilities. Microsoft adCenter would provide search advertising services on Nokia’s line of devices and services.
  • Nokia Maps would be a core part of Microsoft’s mapping services. For example, Maps would be integrated with Microsoft’s Bing search engine and adCenter advertising platform to form a unique local search and advertising experience
  • Nokia’s extensive operator billing agreements would make it easier for consumers to purchase Nokia Windows Phone services in countries where credit-card use is low.
  • Microsoft development tools would be used to create applications to run on Nokia Windows Phones, allowing developers to easily leverage the ecosystem’s global reach.
  • Nokia’s content and application store would be integrated with Microsoft Marketplace for a more compelling consumer experience.
