I do believe that this certainly is a good news for both Nokia & WP7 (Because Currently They Are Both Struggling On The Market), But Android is no way in trouble.

That has to happen sooner or later, both companies have to save their asses :) This join will bring very interesting devices on the market in the near future, can wait to see some of the flagship Microsoft-Nokia smartphones...
This will definitely take some market shares from the Android and the iOS. I am the Android platform user, but i was thinking to move to the Windows 7, but now I will wait for some Nokia devices it might be worth to be patient...

Nokia are honestly thick. Why dont they be like HTC and opt to both Android AND WM7? While I do love the Windows Mobile 7 OS, Its sales are getting destroyed by Android and Iphone. Nokia should honestly opt to Android aswell if they really want to make funds. Even Sony Ericsson has opted to it and are succeeding.

Remember, Nokia is in a bitter battle with Apple over patent disputes, the same Apple that's suing every Android OEM for IP infringement. Adopting Android would make it worse. Since Microsoft and Apple have an agreement over patents, it works out better for Nokia and WP7.
