Nokia Already Getting Excited about Windows PhoneFebruary 11, 2011 1 Comment
It has only been a couple of hours since Nokia and Microsoft announced their partnership and already Nokia is trying to pump up their customers about WP7. On their website they already have the top 5 reasons why people should be getting excited about Nokia running Windows Phone 7.
We’ve enjoyed our widgets on Symbian devices, but Microsoft’s tiles are even simpler to set up and to use: and they put the information that’s most needed by users right where you need it. Microsoft Windows Phone 7 offers great ease of use in comparison to other mobile operating systems. Every alternative will have it’s fans, but this one definitely drives up the usability of devices.
Gaming at the next level
If you like to use your mobile device for gaming, then your world just might have got a lot rosier. Using a Nokia Windows phone we’re excited about the possibility of powerful console franchises appearing right on our mobile devices.
Dealing with proper work documents on a mobile device has always been the source of a lot of pain for users. That gets a lot easier when you’ve got a mobile version of Microsoft Office, authored by Microsoft themselves. There’s no-one who wouldn’t want the easiest experience possible when it comes to reading, writing and communicating.
Or rather, “Music + Videos Hub”. Windows Mobile does a great job of bringing together your media in an attractive and user-friendly way.
If you’re one of the many millions of people who depend on connecting to a Microsoft Exchange server, then you may well be looking forward to the likelihood of improved support that comes with having MS as your mobile device’s operating system provider.
And of course there’s more
The Nokia Microsoft strategic alliance will intertwine the companies in more ways than one. This is more than about combining Windows Phone 7 with Nokia hardware. Microsoft’s Bing has already been using NAVTEQ mapping technology, Nokia devices have already been using Microsoft technology. There are many layers to this alliance, whether it be bringing Bing Search to Ovi Maps or navigation to Windows or simply combining the best brains in both companies to produce something entirely revolutionary.
For some (ourselves included), this might be a surprising step. But we’re excited about it and already imagining the possibilities of what might unfold. We hope you are, too. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
This news is just getting better and better…
