That's when you know you are being successful... When everyone starts piling on and taking cheap shots... Must be scary for them to see Nokia and MS team up for what could be a real game changer.
MS has done a great job of manoevering quickly and came up with an OS that directly addresses the way people access content now. Absolutely Apple and Google beat them to the punch, but MS really responded. MS and Nokia BOTH recognized a good deal and bet on EACH OTHER. It's great for the ecosystem to have other partners...Samsung and HTC (others will follow), but MS and Nokia are THE players in this game right now.
I really appreciated the blog entry today about the financial apps. That has also been a big deal for some... Access to a Chase or Paypal App. Heck, I'll use the Chase App. Was also happy to Etrade in there. Exclusive Red Bull app... yep, the apps are coming as well as new customers. These guys (Nokia and MS) need to keep their foot on the gas though and keep executing.
