So the newest rumour floating around is that Nokia is in talks with Microsoft in order to adopt Windows Phone 7. Eldar Murtazin may be a well connected and mostly credible source. However, in this case, I think he is wrong and I don`t think that Nokia will introduce a Windows Phone 7 handset in the (near) future. In this regards, I am way more in line with Tomi Ahonen.

In fact, I have even ditched my E71 in favour of the iPhone. Now let me explain why.
