MS buys nokia

nokia was fully commited for windows phone.. Why buy a company that you have such a tight cooperation with ?

One explanatantion is that nokia's financilas are not very well.


Anyway ,thare's not a lot MS can get from buying them. Maybe a little bit of revenue per device, or somewhat cheaper devices. Doesn't seem like something that impoortant.

What about Samsung & Co.?

It will be interesting how the other smartphone producers like Samsung will react. Will they still support Windows Phone in the future when Microsoft becomes a competitor?

Nokia Made it's own mistakes

Nokia made several mistakes that led it down this destructive road. Nokia stuck with Symbian too long and then hedged its bets with a new OS from Intel and finally selected Microsoft as an OS partner. Nokia had the opportunity to select Google and Android at the same time, but selected Microsoft, because Microsoft offered cash and to do most of the software engineering work. So, Nokia made one bad choice after another.

However, this split will allow the company to focus on other areas and let Microrsoft worry about a dwindling handset unit. Will this really increase Microsoft's chances in the handset market? Probably not, but Microsoft will continue to through money and resources at it. The real sad part is that Nokia has produced some really good hardware, but it's the software choices that have been the downfall.

I think they were in kind of some agreement thats why Nokia never released Andriod based phone even in their worst time.

Or Google overpaid for Motorola because they have money to burn.

I think that'a the way financial analysts are reading it. Nokia's stock up 30 percent and Microsoft's down 6 percent

wow. 6 years is all it took for Nokia to go from one of the most popular brand to almost nothing. 

MS got it cheap. considering Google paid 12.5B for motorola. Smart move cornerning Nokia with an end game in mind.

Nokia has got a deal!

Looks like Nokia has got a deal here!! Not sure if Nokia re-aligned its strategy to make Windows phone thinking about this possibility of making a deal with Microsoft, but I would tend to think so. Now the question is if Microsoft got a good deal or not...only time will tell. But atleast it could be thought as the last chance for Microsoft to make a desparate turn around in the mobile market.

@Peter Clarke: "Or was this the end-game that was being worked towards even when Nokia adopted the Windows Phone platform in 2011?"

I'm afraid it is!! -- there are many signs pointing that Elop has been playing a very smart game with Nokia smartphone business

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.
