Prediction: Nokia becomes Microsofts hardware division

This last few days has revealed very interesting developments between Microsoft and Nokia.  Here are my predictions for what the long term plans are for the companies.

Nokia’s CEO is an ex MS guy.  And surprise surprise,  he decides to partner with MS for Windows Phone 7.  Nokia had to do something,  their current strategy definitely wasn’t going anywhere.  I think there is more to this than just partnering to make Windows phones however.

I will probably get an iPhone when my current phone dies but for now I have a Motorola Razr.  I quite like the clam shell design because of it’s tactile interaction.  I can answer a call by flipping the phone open and hang up by flipping it closed.  This to me feels more natural than pressing a button (a virtual button at that on most of todays smartphones).  In fact I prefer physical tactile interaction over buttons on all my devices.  I think it creates a stronger connection in our minds between the action we are performing and the outcome it creates.
