Saving software development costs could be accomplished by moving to Android, without the enormous loss of profit due to paying Microsoft for each copy of Windows Phone 7. No. That doesn't explain the decision. Nokia's new CEO Stephen Elop OWNS STOCK IN MICROSOFT, for whom he is a "former" executive. Occams razor test implies that Elop made the decision to benefit himself at the expense of Nokia stockholders. Microsoft has already spent half a billion dollars marketing their outdated and poorly implemented phone operating system. Nokia will not benefit from this sell out by their traitorous CEO.

Frank, how do you possibly figure that taking payment (that will be returned to MS via per-license royalties) to abandon an open OS and yoke to a proprietary one is a win for consumers?

I am not sure I agree Frank...throwing money after losing technology might not work although I agree that a billion dollars is nothing to snif at ;-)...Kris

So much for Nokia's technical analysis of mobile OSes ;-) Both Intel and Microsoft allegedly paid PC companies special marketing concessions to use their processors and Windows back in the '90s.

$1B to get your OS adopted by Nokia is a great deal for MS. Not having to keep sinking money into yet another mobile Linux OS is a great deal for Nokia. Everybody wins, including consumers.

Microsoft and Intel are new partners.Nokia also was with Intel. Now Nokia is no moe with Intel.I feel a kind of triangular RELATIONSHIP.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
