Since Nokia has split with Symbian we have been wondering which direction they would be heading towards since, they had previously expressed their disinterest in Android. I personally thought that they were going to be heading more towards the direction of furthering MeeGo for the purposes of all of their phones. In the end Nokia did settle to try and take Microsoft as the next option for the OS on their mobile phones. This does mean that integration with Microsoft on some of the development will take place such as having Nokia Maps be a central area for Bing advertisement, Nokia’s applications will be integrated into the Microsoft Marketplace, and they will be releasing a single MeeGo device later on this year. Another word on Nokia is that unlike rumors which have been circulating that Nokia will be releasing most of it’s executive staff, they will be keeping them on board.
