Public Mobile has been slowly expanding coverage areas, and Burlington is the most recently added community to get service from the new-entrant carrier. Along with the network launch, Public Mobile has also opened two new retail stores in the area to serve customers, at 650 Plains Road, and 796 Brant Street. Coverage in the Burlington area "continues from Oakville (Burloak Drive) in the East extending to the border with Hamilton (intersection of Highway 403 and Highway 6). Coverage is available from the lake north to Mainway (East of Guelph Line) and to Highway 403 (West of Guelph Line)." With 10 stores available throughout Oakville, Hamilton, and Burlington, Public Mobile's expansion seems to be going well. Keep growing!

A few days ago, Nokia announced that they have partnered up with Microsoft to make their primary focus Windows Phone 7 products. Only a few days later, Nokia also announced that they have made their #1 priority to beat out Android, a challenge that Nokia is looking to take on. Since Nokia is still the world's top handset manufacturer, this should be mean great things for the Windows Phone 7 platform, and might be the boost Nokia needs to help them secure their spot at the top. According to Nokia, they're happy to be entering into the Windows Phone 7 competition with the likes of HTC, Samsung, and LG, but are most excited about the opportunity to overtake Android.
