Is this ever going to end?

Interested to know

The Microsoft astroturfers are still spinning this as a win.


It can only be a win for MSFT and loss for Nokia. Whichever way you look at it, MSFT has ensured that Nokia gives up all Handset business even the "irrelevant" feature phones - why ?


And just 3 months ago Tomi told us how LG is on a rebound thanks to Android...

A revealing article on Nokia's (the remaining company) future.

Firstly, let's forget about Nokia. Even the remains (i.e. what was not ceded to Redmond) continues to be in the grip of Microsoft. Management is MS approved. Decisions are MS approved.

The article speaks of "Patents, maps, and R&D muscle" to be the focus of the future Nokia.

So, let's see: patents are left in Nokia (but with MS' right to use them) because it would not be nice to see MS directly pursuing others with Nokia patents. So they let what's left of Nokia to do the dirty Patent Troll job. The job the real Nokia (i.e. the pre MS THTRH Flop one) originally never engaged in.

Maps means Here Maps, but I bet getting out significant profits from this activity (again gifted to MS and it's WP ecosystem, which in turn means also to previous Nokia competitors) will be tough, because so much of it has already been given away, and because the market has lots of competitors right now.

R&D muscle... must be a joke, since the best expertise has already left Nokia during the THTRH Flop failed experiment.

So, in summary: a company deprived of its most valuable bits is now a MS proxy to disturb competition by patent trolling and similar techniques.

What a great end for Nokia. A proxy patent troll for MS. What an end!

Can you provide a link to the article you are referring?
It seems very interesting.


I wish Nokia could continue on their own rather than going into the hands of Microsoft. Now I'll never buy any Nokia device again.. I don't like Microsoft Windows Phone based smartphones much but Nokia did great with its Lumia design and hardware. Now don't know what will be the future of Lumia.


Thus do you think that windows phone will become stronger? What do you think of BB's future?


With blogs like this around I don't even need website anymore. I can just visit here and see all the latest happenings in the world.

LG is doing pretty well and with the release of several good smartphones, it has become one of the strong competitor to the rivals.
