Nokia close to deal for Windows Phone 7 According to multiple sources, Nokia is very close to announcing a partnership with Microsoft that will have Windows Phone 7 added to Nokia smartphones.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop apparently had talks with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Google's former CEO Eric Schmidt but chose WP7 over Android.

Additionally, Nokia has already pulled funds and time from MeeGo (its Symbian successor), likely leaving it to Intel.

Elop, hired in September to turn the company around, will unveil the strategy tomorrow at an event in London.

Nokia has a tiny presence in the United States, and is quickly losing its lead in the smartphone market to Android and Apple.
