This video is worth watching - Elop stresses that one of the key benefits Nokia brings is the ability to get Windows Phone 7 into markets and price points where it isn't currently. The "price points" is an important factor; we know that HVGA (480 x 320) is in the cards for future Windows Phone 7 devices, and you can bet that Nokia will be all over that: they're great at building both low-cost and middle-of-the-road hardware to serve a variety of markets. I can see a small HVGA Windows Phone 7 device hitting the market in late 2011/early 2012 that would allow Microsoft to reach new markets.
This is definitely the biggest announcement yet made for the fledgling Windows Phone 7 platform.
