microsft can only make more windows awareness by making a phone, there mobiles would prob only be mid range at start anyway.
nokia have nothing to fear here, and if they did they could jump ship straight into android and kill micro off.
microsoft kept saying they werent making a mob. so ask yourself what could nokia be doing in the back room. lol. the mind wonders

if they wish to sell then they should offer reasonable prices, unlike their surface RT tablets! i dont say they should go as low as the nexus 4, but the compitition is really intenssive and low-prices products like nexus 4 can be as dangerous as iphone 5!
