Default MS and Nokia sign principle agreement detail - ahead of schedule

MS and Nokia have just released joint press announcements confirming “signing of a definitive agreement” progressing their earlier announcement in FEB 2011 of a partnership.

Quite a lot of detail in the press release. My quick summary of the benefit/feature exchange of their core strengths to each other is:

* MS BING ——> Nokia.

* Nokia Imaging (aka cameras) ——> MS WP7

* Nokia Maps (OVI) —–> MS WP7

* Nokia Dev’s ——–> Free Access to WP7 Dev.

* WP7 Apps+Games ——-> New Nokia combined Global Appstore (not WP7 exclusive)

* Billing technology and integration ——–> WP7.

* Nokia Paying WP7 Royalties ———> MS

* MS paying the deal sweetner ———> Nokia.

Volume deliveries of new handsets expected in 2012, with "heaps" of pressure on Nokia to realize a product release this year.
