a WinKia (WindowsPhone7+Nokia) device to be launched next week at MWC?

In May last year I was posting “a Nokia Windows Mobile 7? Stop dreaming!” Apparently, the rumor of a Windows Phone 7 powered Nokia device is back. And this time I think there are reasonable chances that it will happen. What changed between last year and today?

  1. Mr Elop took over Nokia’s reigns and he’s coming from Microsoft
  2. Nokia failed in its Symbian open source strategy
  3. Meego failed to materialize beyond the Nokia N900

So next week will be the moment of truth for Nokia: either they show a compelling User Experience and UI on a Meego (or Symbian?) powered device or a Windows Phone device. I don’t see any alternative if Nokia wants to counter strike in the smartphone segment.
