    I wonder if development will stop on current WP7 devices? I have a HD7 and love it, but why would HTC throw any time or development into the phone if they are loosing the platform?

    The MS/Nokia deal isn't exclusive, no-one is losing the platform.

    I wonder if this will **** off the HTC's, LG's, Samsung's or if they already didn't care enough to care.

    It's bad enough to Microsoft that all of these brands are out there pushing the competition while Microsoft is begging them to make their phones. This all seems weirdly political. But it's Microsoft's fault.

    If they had been there before Android was, this wouldn't even be an issue.

    HTC says the Nokia deal is a sign that they did the right thing in investing in wp7 and they will continue to do so

    Bah , HTC ,LG ,samsung , have NOTHING to worry about up here in canada

    Nokia has a REALY REALY bad track record with us!! i remember working in a bell store , some client needed a new battery back cover for his nokia, the Nokia Rep told me and i quoat"" tell the client to look on E-bay "" ever sints that day , nokia can kiss my ***.

    Nothing but problems with the Nokia Phones. MS should of picked a BETTER company to partner with ( htc or samsung ) some one with GOOD tract record and experiance.

    Nokia does bring some significant investment to the WP7 platform. Mainly in the form of mapping and location based services.
    Services that will also be available to other OEMs inside the ecosystem.
