Windows Mobile Based Nokia Devices

Microsoft’s Mobile Communications Business International Marketing Director John Starkweather has recently confirmed that talks were taking place between Microsoft and Nokia. Could we possibly see a Windows Mobile based Nokia device in the future? While the talks are there I would not expect to see it, especially anytime soon.

John mentioned that while Nokia has “significant investments in Symbian … there are a lot of places where we have significant synergies and we would love to see the day where those synergies would extend completely with Windows Mobile.” Of course he later went on to mention that “It’s something we talk about all the time.” Personally I think if Nokia went with Windows Mobile they would have a lot of angry Symbian fans on their hands.
