Read WPcentral Blog.few of the reasons why Microsoft purchased Nokia Devices and services are to Stop Apple and Google from Foreclosing Apps and impede Mobility and Nokia's rich treasure chests of patent portfolio.Nokia and Microsoft Deal will make some run for their money.This is what when some Arrogant companies refuses access to their services..Cough..cough.youtube on Windowsphone
I was the true lover of nokia phones but hearing this news i feel pitty ...as nokia is a well known brand name!!
Meego is the best operating system i have ever seen in my life. It is better than android ios or windowsphone. Am talking about nokia n9. I still dont undersrand why nokia stoped manufacturing meego devices. Nokia n9 is the most innovative and powerfull smartphone i used. Windows phone is the worst.
Wth..wake up today wih this news.. waaa!!! U made me crying.. curse u elop.. this is fkng sad sad.. will miss u nokia.
Many other companies can bid for Nokia and boost their market grip like LG, Lenovo, Dell even Intel. Anybody can put Android on PureView and recover $5 Billion, it's that simple maths, Nokia is worth way MORE than $5Billion
Nothing's changing if any at all then for d best when these two giants can harness each others strengths. I'm relived as now Nokia would never make an android ever. Nokia employees are to be retained so is the brand too. why worry?
???, 03 Sep 2013Mr Elop (Trojan Horse), your plan to bring down Nokia, lower down the value and eaten by Micro... morei totally agree with you... microsoft sent a person (Stephen Elop) to destroy nokia from the inside by becoming nokia CEO and make a bad decision with the unpopular platform choice (WindowsPhone) where other OEM create both android and WP, so nokia value become lower and then Microsoft happily take over nokia with cheap price for a good brand.
my next phone will be made by SONY, currently using Samsung Galaxy S2 Phone.
Rubbish... Terrible News !
Literally it is the end of an empire !
I as ex - Nokia employee in Brazil,'m really bothered by this news, because it represents a point of no return !
I did not deserve to wake up today with this news...after years of being in love and loyal to Nokia. 150 years of experience, innovation and quality blown away by globalization and that Juda of Elopp...will miss you Nokia! Goodbuy (I'm just going to buy my next Nokia Lumia, to have a last memory of Nokia's branding, and to see that logo of Nokia connecting people...).
Waiting for someone to bay Microsoft and do what Microsoft did to poor Nokia. .

1. To run away with Microsoft, especially with the intention of getting bitch slap.
Clever moves by microsoft. By making nokia bankrupt, microsoft can aquires nokia cheaply. Cheap trick!
MuammarK, 03 Sep 2013Agree. Series 40 is the reason why Nokia went bankrupt in the 1st place.Nope it was the Lumia that made Nokia Bankrupt
Series 40 saved it
[deleted post]I don't think Samsung need Nokia users as they are already the top dog.
