Wow, that would be great thing to happen. That will add boost to nokia's confidence. Microsoft + Nokia + Skype will give some excellent features to the consumers.

It seems to me that Nokia missed the Android boat, then choose Windows as a way to differentiate from the many companies that are making Android smartphones. Plus, I Nokia has said that it got billions of dollars from Microsoft for going with Windows. For the past few weeks there has been a persistent rumor--and I stress that this is a rumor--that Microsoft will acquire Nokia.

Just fail to understand, why Nokia didn't opt for Android. It could have made them top selling mobile company because, in hardward features nobody can beat Nokia. I still hope Nokia adopts Android just to stay in the race.

It sounds like Nokia needs a second prong in their strategy shift -- not only the Windows smartphone strategy, but also a very aggressive cost-cutting on their lower end models, which are the ones that pay the bills.

I don't care whether Nokia lost market share, but let them give me one device which works like a iPhone or Galaxy then I will think again. Hello, hello, oops, the line went dead.

What?!? For handsets (where Nokia will live or die) Android outsells IOS. If they fail it won't be Apple who is at fault.

Missing the sales forecast is really a bad news in altready bad year for Nokia. She is loosing market shares yoy basis and people are not happy the way Nokia-Windows partnership happened. Focus should be on increasing the market shares rather than cutting cost to look good.

though i agree that Window-Nokia combination is going to be good for both but the worry here is that Nokia is losing ground in the low and mid end segments which are the stronghold of Nokia. Smartphone segment's performance should not affect these segments.

The smartphone market is fickle and therefore hard to predict. They are such a fashion statement for the young crowd, a crow of an age not known for independent thinking. Apple is the fashion du jour, so Android, and now Windows, have a tough row to hoe. I agree that Nokia had to find a partner with lots of clout. It's just that in the small portable device market, the fashion statement that people feel compelled to make has an Apple emblem on it. For the time being. I certainly agree that in the middle of the switchover, Nokia will be especially vulnerable.

Well, they've basically announced that all their present smartphones are going to basically be obsolete, so you'd expect the sales of these products to plummet. Can they avoid the Osborne affect and get Windows phones out in time to survive the freefall? (Osborne made computers before the PC clones existed. Adam Osborne announced that PC clones were the future and that his company was working on them. The sales of their previous product plummeted, and they didn't have enough money to finish their clones, so the company went under. Some people dispute this history, but it is how I remember it).
