    I wonder if, as time goes on, the merger will reduce Nokia-exclusive apps (or maybe firmware options).
    Personally, the exclusivity irritates me.
    I've had HTC, Samsung, and Nokia phones.
    When I was using a Nokia phone, I got used to some Nokia-exclusive apps and firmware options.
    Now, I'm using a Samsung phone, and I miss those things.
    Honestly, if I was buying an expensive new phone, I don't think I'd buy anything, other than Nokia.
    Even if I like the form-factor or hardware of an non-Nokia, there is just too much value with a Nokia.
    I'd like to see the exclusivity go away.
    To me, it's hurting an already-fledgling ecosystem more than helping it.

    I don't think there has been official word of what is going to happen with the exclusives, but there surely are a lot of people like you who would like to see them shared with other OEMs' phones.
