After reading this article I got a feeling that Nokia is givng in too much for this deal. What is the position for Microsoft in the deal. Nokia phones are no doubt very reliable and user friendly but with MS OS and other fetaure not sure how it will compete against Apple.

Not a good move by Nokia. This is their end. Android will rule this earth and I am sorry for Nokia. Why should someone buy a window phone?

In Ireland, most of people in their middle age or more, are using smart phone, and young people prefer iPhone or google's Android phone, because of their cool looking. Nokia still have a lot of funs. But I have to say, though symbian OS seems stable, its response speed for the user seems a bit low compared to that of iPhone and Android. The Nokia handsets are quite good even though the OS seems to be weaker in the smart world. I think this is why Nokia and Microsoft are tied together. Another side, Microsoft doesn't have any hardware relevent business, if it wants to suvive, it has to look for some hardware based partners. Microsoft with ARM or Nokia, is one of Microsoft's plan for the future.

High end devices are the money makers, it will be intresting to see how Nokia is profitable in the next 2 yrs. Perhaps the MS cash infusion was the only way!

To my view, this looks like a win-win for both Nokia & MS, but I'm not sure where it leaves Intel's mobile efforts -- especially now that MS will support ARM.

The partnership could be ground breaking. The consuming world can definitely be benefited by a creditable 3rd player besides the iOS and Android. Nokia made an excellent choice by going with Microsoft. It has many overlap & conflict of interest with Google. Map is a major one. In the Android camp, Nokia needs to fight for attention while the majority of those could have already been given to Samsung, Motorola, HTC alike. Nokia and Microsoft have both done many far-reaching research over the years across a broad spectrum of applications. Combing together, a lot of sparks can come through. This partnership can have many far reaching results over the years, assuming reasonable execution. I have always discounted Nokia's phone for the past 10 years. But, I will look forward to getting one within a year from now. Great, Apple and Google now have some real competition and the world may see some true innovation for years to come!

Adding to what Warren said, I don't think that Nokia's MeeGo platform work will go to waste but rather, be retargeted. First to OS with MSP7 and maybe then hardware with a move to Atom (note that the MeeGo initiative is being done with Intel despite that the MeeGo phone slated for late 2011 runs a SnapDragon). We may be seeing the birth of the NokWintel sector of mobile comms!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
