Nokia embraces Windows Phone 7 Video Transcript
-It's Friday, February 11th, I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. Nokia is embracing Windows Phone 7 on its future handsets. Microsoft and Nokia announced that Windows Phone will be the primary smartphone OS for Nokia phones, but this does not mean Nokia will exclusively run Windows Phone 7 on its devices. Being will be the default search on Nokia phones and Nokia maps will power many Microsoft services on the phone. Nokia and Microsoft will also merge their app stores. No idea on how long it takes before Nokia's current OS Symbian is phased out. The Opera Mini Web browser is coming to the iPad. The company announced that an update to Opera Mini will launch at Mobile World Congress and be on Android, IOS, Blackberry, and Symbian devices along with the iPad. This is the first established browser alternative to hit the iPad after Apple Safari. AT&T does not want you to go to Verizon or any other network that's why they're offering unlimited calls to any phone on any network for free. Of course, it's not that simple. You need to have unlimited messaging and a qualifying voice plan. Unlimited messaging is $20 per month or 30 for the family talk plan. AT&T is also promoting a sale where Blackberry, Android, and Windows Phone 7 devices can be purchased for a penny with a 2-year contract and T-Mobile has a great sale today and tomorrow. T-Mobile will offer every phone for free to costumers that sign it to your contract. And Windows Phone 7 users can make purchases on Amazon with a new app. It's free and it lets you search and buy products from the online retailer. Windows phone 7 specific swipes are also supported to let you slide between product info like reviews, related items, and details, and Google wants to make sure your personal information is safe. They are launching a feature that anyone can enable. It lets you log in to Google using your existing password and a special second password that changes. Google will send you a pass code by text or through the Google authenticator app and then you log in. The set up may be intimidating for some, but if your information is worth protecting, you'll do it. That's your news for the day and that wraps up your week of getting loaded. I'm Mark Licea for cnet.com and you've just been loaded.
