+ - Nokia will get billions from Microsoft-> 1

Submitted by takis
takis (14451) writes "On Sunday, a day ahead of the start of the Mobile World Congress cell phone trade show in Barcelona, Elop told press, analysts and industry players that apart from the benefits of the alliance that were laid out Friday, Microsoft is paying Nokia billions of dollars to switch to Windows Phone 7.
"This is something I don't think was completely explained," Elop said. Elop, a former Microsoft executive, said Finland-based Nokia had been courted by Google Inc. as well, which sought to convince it to use its popular Android software for smart phones. Microsoft's payments are recognition that Nokia had "substantial value to contribute," said Elop."
