Today, 11th of February, 2011, Nokia and Microsoft has announced a strategic partnership to create a new global mobile ecosystem. The two companies have joined hands to create a market leading mobile products. 
This deal will boost both Nokia and Microsoft in exchanging technology. Below is proposed partnership:

Nokia would contribute its expertise on hardware design, language support, and help bring Windows Phone to a larger range of price points, market segments and geographies. 
Nokia and Microsoft would closely collaborate on joint marketing initiatives and a shared development roadmap to align on the future evolution of mobile products. 
Bing would power Nokia search services across Nokia devices and services, giving customers access to Bing next generation search capabilities. Microsoft adCenter would provide search advertising services on Nokia line of devices and services. 
Nokia Maps would be a core part of Microsoft mapping services. For example, Maps would be integrated with Microsoft Bing search engine and adCenter advertising platform to form a unique local search and advertising experience. 
Nokia extensive operator billing agreements would make it easier for consumers to purchase Nokia Windows Phone services in countries where credit-card use is low. Microsoft development tools would be used to create applications to run on Nokia Windows Phones, allowing developers to easily leverage the ecosystem global reach. 
Nokia content and application store would be integrated with Microsoft Marketplace for a more compelling consumer experience. 
This will definitely be hitting Google Andriod and Apple iphone market share. An important factor remains when will Nokia ship Windows based mobile phones in market?
