Microsoft pays big to play with Nokia

According to InformationWeek:
Speaking at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona, [Nokia CEO Stephen] Elop said the deal's value to Nokia is "in Bs not in Ms." The comment sparked speculation that Microsoft is, in effect, paying Nokia—the world's biggest cell phone manufacturer in terms of market share—to carry Windows Phone 7 on its smartphones.
Pay to play, or down payment?
