I know, I made a mint buying MSFT when they pulled the stunt.
Just sold my last batch last week.
I have no experience with android whatsoever but was and are still an apple user.
If they would create a low margin front with their ease of use and the reliability of NOK it would surely give a global run to Android.

We've had a good laugh at Farhan's expense. Bad choice on his part to sell, but lets keep it civil, okay?
I can see 9 coming after this month's ER. Me thinks we are going UP soon :o)
Isn't that the truth! I was helping the hot real estate agent put open house signs
In her car and she takes off her hot shows and I froze like a deer in the headlights
When she pulled out a pair of crocs and flopped on the ground..oh my..
If only the crew could have seen this one..
The dentist! Recently I went to my cute dentist, she was wearing white Crocs, I was laughing all the time, she had hard time drilling.
yes it did turn out good for us. of course, we all knew MS would buy us out. that's why we invested, no? :)
I understand and I don't think Nokia will make a Windows laptop. But looking back, it would have taken decades for Nokia before they could earn 8B$ selling android phones, so the Windows phone story is not that bad.
Well, world history, that's an interesting question. The rumor obviously does not mention. I am same as jorge, I would prefer something not windows at this point. Still suffering hangover from the window phone days.
Farhan take my advice friend...take a break. You are overwhelmed and not thinking straight.
Give this message board a rest. You are welcome to come to my tent to relax for a few.
No, you're just whipsawed from changing your mind too fast, too many times, sometimes over the same piece of partially-digested information.
Take your claim, for example, that Samsung will pay no more than 20% over the previous agreement.
By one estimate, Samsung paid $150-$200 million in royalties in 2013. So you are saying that Samsung will pay no more than $180-$240 mlllion in royalties to Nokia from 2014 to 2019.
Samsung is paying IDCC something like $80 million a year for the next 5 years. Samsung is paying Ericsson $300+ million a year for the next 5 years after making Ericsson go to court after 2 years of futile negotiations. And you expect Samsung to pay much less than Ericsson when Samsung publicly agreed to renew and to be the net payor even before its 2008 deal expired at the end of 2013.
Notice the disconnect?.......and the emotional turmoil that seems to surround your recent decision-making?
Take a break, friend.
