Very good move for Nokia and great for WinPhone. As a WinPhone developer, I strongly think it'd make a good basis for a tablet OS as well, and encourage Nokia and MSFT to continue to investigate this.
Looking forward to the new devices!
@ Steve - Thanks for the feedback, and I agree with the excitement of the move and the new devices. Interesting input on the tablet piece. I guess we'll have to see what all develops moving forward. Thanks again.
