    Nokia becomes Microsoft

    I've never liked Microsoft much, but this makes perfect sense and might be what both companies need to survive:

    Microsoft to acquire Nokia's smartphone business: Connect

    That leaves us with three strong forces in the mobile device segment, Apple/iOS, Samsung/Android and MicroNokia/Windows 8. Hopefully, Microsoft will continue the development of the large sensor Lumia phones.

    And if they don't I've already secured a Nokia Lumia 808 running Symbian

    I can now sell all my other cameras and invest in Islay Whiskys instead

    One commentator pointed out that Nokia has existed for 150 years and that their handset production has only been a part of the business for a very short part of that period. They have other, very strong legs to stand on.

    Yep the Nokia that remains will be a different company, likely to compete with Ericsson and Cisco on the networks side.

    The Nokia 6110 was one of my favorite phones ever.
    I wish we could move on from these touch screen phones.
    Right now development seems to have stagnated. :sleep006:
