According to Engadget, it’s expected that Nokia will announce a new partnership at Capital Markets Day next Friday. The report strongly bruits with Nokia recently appointed CEO Stephen Elop (from Microsoft) and has clearly marching orders to take Nokia in a new, more profitable direction making Windows Phone 7 as the operating system of choice moving forward, with Google’s Android also touted as a possible alternative to in-house software such as Symbian and MeeGo.

Can Nokia become another Samsung, LG or HTC? There’s clearly a market out there for sleek, sexy hardware running the latest and greatest OS and Nokia certainly knows how to do sleek and sexy.
