Nokia has been pushing this move for a long time, but as Microsoft has to show equal treatment towards all manufacturers, Nokia was forbidden from doing so. Microsoft followed a path that made the iPhone shine. Thinkers at Microsoft wanted to control every aspect of the OS, but now they have realized that they can’t be Apple and need to be little open to changes.
