Nokia’s decision to abandon Symbian and strike up a partnership with Microsoft was a huge move that brings with it the potential to shakeup the entire smartphone industry. Of course, there’s also the possibility that the Nokia/Microsoft partnership will create more of a wimper than a bang, but hey, that’s the inherent joy in watching the tech landscape unfold.
We’re not sure when we’ll start seeing Windows Phone 7 Nokia devices hit the streets, but Engadget was able to score photos detailing conceptual devices drawn up by the two companies. And to be honest, we’re intrigued. Of course, concepts always look appealing, so we’ll have to wait and see if this somewhat unexpected partnership actually bears any fruit.
