With Microsoft’s new alliance with Nokia, there is an expectation that the market for Windows Phone 7 will grow substantially, passing the Apple iOS phones by 2015, according to a recent Gatner report.

We spoke earlier this month to David Sayed, Marketing Manager for the Microsoft Media unit.  We caught him at the Streaming Media East conference.
