Nokia and Microsoft forge deal

Nokia and Microsoft have formed a strategic partnership that will see Nokia use the software giant’s Windows Phone as its primary operating system.

Under the partnership, Nokia will help drive the future of Windows Phone, the pair said in a statement today (11 February). The two will work together on joint marketing initiatives and work to bring the OS to a larger range of price points.

Microsoft’s Bing will power Nokia’s search services; Microsoft’s adCenter will provide search advertising; and Nokia maps will be a core part of Microsoft’s mapping services.

Nokia’s content and application store will be integrated with Microsoft’s marketplace for a ‘more compelling' user experience.

Meanwhile, the future of Nokia’s primary OS, Symbian, and its joint venture with Intel, MeeGo, is uncertain.
