Anonymous, 19 Nov 2013microsoft and nokia ??? pfffft apple is kingApple actually suck, Nokia were the true innovators and like Apple now ran out of ideas. I believe give you 5 years and someone else will be king and you will be saying Apple sucks! That is fashion and of course demand for a product, I reckon Apple have another 5 years before their so called cool image is tarnished. In some countries Apple arent cool anymore i.e look at the flop of a 5c, poor attempt and another sign of greed from Apple.
share holders should have waited for one more year. nokia recently came back with a PROFIT this quatar after 4 year. it was just starting to stand on iys own. given such a crucial time for windows phone as well as nokia. it was not a god dicision IMO.
But every thing happens for good
nokia came out of these situations in past and hopes do it again.eflop is the biggest jerk and wish that man become completely ruined.wherever he goes he sell that company.
Microsoft only bought Asha and Lumia brands, the other phones still will be Nokia brand, and as you all probabbly heard, Nokia worked on an Android phone prototype. Maybe Nokia will get on market another Brand like with Android. But I'm not sure if Microsoft will like that... Anyways it's sad to see another company going down... this time NOKIA !! woah !! that was hard to swallow...Also BlackBerry... But it's not the end... others companies started to fall down slowly but for sure... look at Apple, Their last 2 phones were a complete fail... NO remarcable update from the last model.. and this is not my opinion, it's a FACT, for example Apple just cancelled iPhone 5c production... because ppl just won't buy it... I'm really not a hater, I like iPhones :) but we have to admit, Apple is a complete mess since Steve Jobs is gone...
The Nokia Board are more bothered about the finacial postition an not the True State of the Nokia Name,Microsoft knew Nokia were Stuggling to compete with Apple an Android,an there own name was not so Popular with consumers,so chose Nokia to Help them out,People knew something was going to happen at Nokia as soon as Mr Elop was choosen as the new Chairman at Nokia,an something to do with Microsoft was going to happen,Then Mr Elop announced "Symbian is Dead" an Windows was chosen over Android,Mr Elop kept the Nokia shares Declining so is Old Employees Microsoft would advance Nokia with a Takeover,How can the Shareholders accept this offer seems totally Amazing to loads of People,If Nokia now was with Android there phones would be so popular,but will Nokia now even Exist after this deal an how will Microsoft advance Nokia if there name is not so popular
if ms people are smart they wont make eflop ceo. and why the hell that man getting 25 million $s.wish nokia return to phone business soon.
It was Nokia Lumia Windows eight now it will be called Windows ate Nokia Lumia.
Siemens now you can rest in peace.
Samsung crushed Nokia for good.
So there goes Nokia to the hall of History. Shame that such a great company went down the irrelevancy path.
Too bad they don't want to see that, if WP ever be successful, other companies will pour into it. Of course, by then Nokia will have done all the hard work for others.
No please call it off. I still want a Nokia Android. The asha platform will likely be killed by Microsoft so that it can sell low-end lumias as well.
This was the most hostile takeover of any company ever, using a Trojan horse to infiltrate Nokia and force it to use only WP and make it cheap by losing money so that Elop then can give it to his real employer, Microsoft! Microsoft is worse than the maffia!
Too bad for Nokia as Phone manufacturer. Wp8 is good, but I'm afraid without Nokia as the strong reliable brand, WP8 will not sell so well anymore. Nokia made WP8 big, because of the brand loyalty of a lot people. Note that when Microsoft will try to sell their phones without a strong and settled name in the Phone business, it will become a huge task for them. The fact that Nokia is not allowed to use the Nokia brand name on own phones, is good news for me. I am sure they will try to return on the market again after the 1,5 years. I am curious about the new handsets Microsoft will make. But for now, I will say instead of selling more WP8 phones, they will sell less now Nokia will dissapear from devices despite the fact it remains the same 'team'.
Rest in peace Nokia! Microsoft is far worse, closed..., than Apple and Google combined!
