It may only be a rumour at the moment, but it would seem like a good bet that the biggest manufacturer of mobile handsets would want a more advanced operating system to compete with its rivals such as the iPhone and the Android.
Similarly, it would only seem appropriate that the largest OS developer would want a flagship handset to show off its raft of services. This is why rumours have been circulating recently and The Times newspaper has published an article warning us to possibly expect a Windows 7 Nokia smartphone in the future.
The smartphone market is still on the up with sales of these handsets still on the rise. These technological devices are highly valued by individuals and businesses alike. The fact that smartphones are being widely used in business as the world adapts to mobile working means there is so much opportunity out there. This is why in a lucrative market such as this it is no wonder that these giants are rumoured to be joining forces to blow away the competition.
Whether it comes to fruition or not, especially when Nokia is already committed to Symbian, this kind of partnership does seem to make sense.
