Nokia-Microsoft collabpsing

Nokia posted terrible earnings on Thursday, reporting a $523 million loss in the second quarter, and is no longer the world’s biggest cell-phone vendor. The crown has fallen on Apple and its immensely popular iPhone, the catalyst for a dramatic transformation in the mobile market.

The Finnish company is now in dire straits. Despite injecting new CEO blood with former Microsoft executive Stephen Elop, Nokia’s business is slipping fast. And its bold move to widely adopt Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 platform may not produce results quickly enough to reverse the trend, an analyst says.

Nokia is a deep shit for doing this. :@

Discuss.

The only thing Nokia has left is a good reputation from people who don't know anything about mobile phones.

Nokia thought they were pretty special for developing their own operating system. While really, the bureaucratic manner in which they developed it made them sit still, while Apple, Google and RIM were eating up their market share.

I see this purely as a desperate move to somehow stay relevant.
