And nokia maps will become  one central part of Microsoft mapping service.

IT industry is a special industry, it must need more research funds, in the scientific research of the provision enough development funds and risk covered. So IT's really the boss, "disposable" free money is not much: apple may be the first boss when hand a large amount of cash, the financial report suggests that about more than $500, about two times as many as in the market value of the nokia; Google's cash surplus also so musch, but should be less than apple and Microsoft; Microsoft's cash surplus and its peak time, though not there is still some around $30 billion; Other IT manufacturers have no so filthy rich--or is not enough, or is profitable surplus high but small scale.

In the construction of ecological system, nokia to give up their own application stores, but hte content and applications will be integrated into the Ovi store Microsoft Windows Marketplace for Mobile. Nokia will use the Windows as main operation system of the smart phones, and on the platform, nokia will innovate in the market leading position, such as taking pictures, etc.; But nokia is still not going to immediately give up saiban system, has sold 200 million units in both saiban system on the basis of mobile phones, is still planning to sell 150 million mobile phone system in the future.
