Nokia partners China Mobile for Windows Phone devices sales

17th August 2011 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

Nokia is set to release its first Windows Phone device. Any surprise! While the date is yet to be confirmed, Nokia’s executive VP Colin Giles made it clear that the Finnish giant will start selling its devices in China together with China Mobile, according to a report in

What can be a better news than this for Microsoft? The company has been trying to spread its mobile platform to as many consumers as possible. China Mobile currently has 600 million subscribers. This presents a huge opportunity for growth for Nokia as well as for Microsoft. This is a sure fire way to grow the adoption rate of mobile OS.

Microsoft had earlier signed a deal with Nokia to switch from Symbian to Windows Phone for its premium devices. Switching from Symbian to Windows Phone is another issue, of course. However, with this deal, Microsoft hopes to quickly spread the adoption rate and appeal of its new mobile platform.

Also, Microsoft is all set to launch a major update of its Windows Phone. The update, ‘Mango’, brings some 500 new features to its platform. Mango is expected to roll out in the coming weeks.

Analysts say that bringing Windows Phone to China is a strategic win for both Nokia and Microsoft, although the result will be known in the coming days.
