Android on Nokia, my dream come true!

 

Nokia X

I always wanted Nokia phones to run Android OS. Here comes the day when the dream comes true. Now begins an era of Nokia’s hardware strength and Android’s OS marvel to work together and the phones will soon be in the hands of end users (yes you).

While Nokia is trying to keep themselves as far as possible from Google services for obvious reasons, this does not mean the users, developers and even phone sellers have anything to loose here. This is an amazing development where Nokia is trying to help drive more and more users to Microsoft services including Skype and Sky Drive (recently renamed to OneDrive)  using Google’s Android OS.

So if you are a grumpy Nokia users and a loyal customer, grab a Nokia X phone in near future and I’m sure you’ll have way better set of software apps available on Nokia X than your old Symbian or Nokia OS phone. Win-win for the Nokia user, whether you pick a Windows Phone or Nokia X (Android) phone.

For developers, it creates a whole new market too. Time port your apps to Nokia X fellows, just visit this site to get started.

I just came across this amazing web archive. If you had a website several years ago or you want to see how your favorite websites looked like a decade back, this is your best bet.

And this is how Apple’s website looked like in 1997.

Is it Microsoft vs Apple all over again? HP Pulls the plug on Web-OS.

The news is spreading fast that HP is discontinuing the Web-OS device operations. While this news needs more detailed analysis and we have a long way to go but we are left with lesser number of players when it comes to operating system for the hand-held devices. Google, Apple, RIM and Microsoft are the four major operating system developers. While RIM and Google are no naive souls, I can’t rule out the possibility of a Microsoft vs Apple battle again a few years down the road if these two can eliminate Google and RIM from the race. With Microsoft’s strategic alliance with Nokia and Apple’s discontinued success story gives rise to the support for this possible traditional rivalry coming to the Smartphone and Tablet’s world soon.

Internet Explorer-I did not expect they’ll promote it on the roads

Microsoft’s latest advertisement on Karachi road-side kind of astonished me. It’s  nothing strange but it’s really unusual. Is this really time to move on to IE 9 beta? I’m not an IE fan but this ad seems to be working … downloading now 😉

And if you cannot read the link on the board, its http://www.microsoft.com/pakistan

** UPDATE **

And that’s a put-off for those who have not upgraded to Windows 7 yet. The download link only gives you an option to download it for Windows 7 32bit or 64bit. No options for a download for Vista or earlier versions.
