    Default Microsoft acquires Nokia

    http://m.asia.wsj.com/articles/a/SB1...?mg=reno64-wsj

    Suddenly brings back alot of memories of the old Nokia phones I used before. My first hp was a Nokia 6190!

    Interestingly, Microsoft's Stephen Elop does his tour of duty from Microsoft, then to Nokia, and then back to Microsoft again, ready to take over Ballmer..

    there is a lot of chance for close working relationship, because Nokia has a tradition of using Symbian (C++) coded... whereas Microsoft is a proponent in the C++,C# technologies...

    Nah. They just want to push out more Windows phones and Nokia is their main partner there anyway.

    Darn! Should have bought Nokia's share before they rolled out Lumia series. It was hovering around US$2.

    This is an interesting read about M$ planting a Trojan horse in Nokia.
