But lots of you live in a world where everything should be free like your beloved android which is far far from truth, you sfans don't get it no matter the argument so i better stop waisting my time
sadly or not the microsoft-nokia deal will not cease to exist. no elop forced nokia to become microsoft. we are treating nokia as if it's a 3-year-old child. obviously there was something to win from such a deal. and korean manufacturers have every right to be afraid and want to have that petition cause it's just not right a huge pc company with no experience over smartphones obtaining such a big list of patents.
This is just speculation that Nokia will be come a troll, let their actions speak for them self in stead of all flying off the handle and assuming this will be the future of Nokia. :)
O man... I really hope this goes through. I am waiting for the day Windows phones get off the ground and gets the same app treatment as Apple. On top for that I can finally edit and view documents through Microsoft office application and do not need to make a copy or whatever. I can truly integrate all my devices into 1 system!
Hope the deal goes through, don't want to see Nokia releasing another Android phone. . .
Hope this finally stops the Microsoft-Nokia deal going through,as really show Mr Elop Up

With this sellout Nokia, what's left of it, will become a patent troll. Only patents and no hardware to back them up, that is the definition of a patent troll.
Please Nokia, I want to see you as Nokia only! What is the difficulty for you? You have a gigantic name in manufacturing mobiles! Why do you have to surrender to Microsoft? If not Windows, there are other Platforms! For an instance, you can release a few high end phones in X-Series! You will be the winner! Hope you change your mind! All the best!
Lol @ Korean manufacturers complaining about patent abuse. But not when Shamsung launches patent cases against rivals in EU and US claiming infringement of Standards Essential Patents.
Really dont see the problem Nokia are not even in the same league as LG/Samsung. the koreans are 10 years ahead in tech, Nokia should quit, there crap. they have had there day with the 3210.

BUT I DON'T EXPECT AN SFAN to UNDERSTAND:)))), calling d@mb someone doesn't automatically exclude you from that category:))))
Anonymous, 11 Mar 2014hope the deal does not go through and Nokia stays free from Microsoft!!!!so google can buy microsoft... just for patents... sell it to lenovo...for scraps... but microsoft cannot buy/license some of nokia...
i just love how google gets carte blanche to do whatever they want just because they say do no evil... while microsoft is still being hated for actions up to and around the 90s
if microsoft did half the stuff google is doing people would be protesting with pitch forks and torches
nokia SHOULD defend its patents.... maybe companies would start to innovate and NOT steal

"Are you all iboys so dumb???
Samsung have also many FRAND (essential) patents , (that Apple also pay). LG, SONY...have essential patents, too.
The point is , that as long as Nokia make handsets, they need Samsung's (essential) patents too. So Nokia cross-license them, so no one pay.
As long as Nokia stops making handsets , they don't need cross-license , and MS will start to take money.
It will affect even your lovely Apple(even if they hade not much to cross-license)"

Besides there is not only Samsung that have essential patents, too. It's also LG (also korean), Sony (japan).......
This is really confusing if MS start to do it.
Google also took the Moto patents, but just for defence.
:))))))), I don't like the ideea of Microsoft + Nokia but at least something good is happening, I can't stop laughing since I read this news, these scarry folks who earned lots of money by stealling others(nokia) ideas and abused of cheap labor now see the posibility of an end to it:))))), of course it will never happen, the human is the perfect steal machine but hey, at least some of them are worried:)
