I hear you on the cloud issue, but right now and for the foreseeable future it's not for me.

You make a good point about what Nokia will want for their customers from WP7 and what ever comes with/instead of that, like Mango.

Which really brings me right back to my first post, how long will this take? Can Microsoft do it?  Their track record with partnerships isn't flash.  I hope they do.

I currently have Symbian^3 (N8) and WP7 (HTC Trophy), the fact that I have relegated my N8 (which was not cheap) to status of "Camera with WiFi" and use the WP7 as my phone should say something.

Nokia N8 hardware is devine (camera & HDMI) and indeed, the integration is better (BlueTooth keyboards, mice, etc) but as a smart phone (in my case business tool) it is very, very weak.

I only hope that all the good from Nokia hardware partners with the productivity of SP7 in this new marriage and produces an smarphone that can go head-to-head with iPhone.

Never - but it could be considered a trick question, because by the time there is even a single Nokia Windows Phone it is likely to be this 'mango' release (as mentioned by Paul earlier) which some have suggested will be called Windows Phone 7.5, not Windows Phone 7.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2011/feb/16/nokia-windows-phone-microsoft-delay

The guardian article points out that Elop has been careful to talk about wanting to see a Nokia Windows Phone, before the end of 2011, without specifying which Windows Phone release. Even a single Windows Phone 7.5 device would be unlikely to satisfy many current Symbian users, but could be attractive to existing Windows phone users and those already considering a Windows phone.

When WP8 is released, there should be a decent range of Nokia Windows phones and we might expect that most of the currently missing functionality has been added back. Unfortunately for Nokia and Microsoft, people remember the 1-2 features you take away, but rarely acknowledge the 10 new things you add.
