Nokia adopted Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 after many months of speculation following Nokia's dwindling share of the smartphone market. Nokia and Microsoft officially announced the alliance 11 February 2011. As part of the deal, Microsoft will allow Nokia to use its software, while also paying the Finnish company billions of dollars. Nokia will contribute a number of its services and research, including Navteq and Ovi.

Nokia has stated that they hope to have a couple of handsets released by the end of 2011, with mass production beginning in 2012.
