Nokia took the stage at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to better explain its new relationship with Microsoft. Nokia CEO Stephen Elop made several key points regarding Nokia's plans. First, it will continue to invest in and develop the Symbian platform, which it will continue to sell for "years." Nokia said it will make significant improvements in Symbian, particularly with respect to the software. Nokia hopes to deliver its first Windows Phone 7 device by the end of the year, but it is not certain it can do that. Nokia specifically chose Windows Phone 7 and not Android because it wants for there to be at least three competing smartphone platforms. Nokia's primary goal is to bring down Android with its WP7 devices. The two companies will work together to create the right set of developer tools so Symbian developers can better adjust to creating for WP7, but it will not use Qt. Nokia still plans to bring at least one MeeGo device to market this year, but reiterated that MeeGo has been relegated to "project" status. Nokia did not announce any new devices.
