    How/Why was Elop Hired?

    How/Why was Elop hired in the first place?

    Were there any other better candidates at the time?

    • I have no clue. Probably not.

      NOK was about phones and networks. Guess the board figured out that was not enough and the wrong way to go. Not too soon either. Maybe too late?

      It is now about data and software that manages that data - on the phone - for this new mobile market.

      Elop inherited a mess and is trying to fix it. I wonder what he would do different if he could.

      People suggest Android vs MSFT. But MSFT is pony'ing up $1 billion a year. MSFT is a natural choice for MSFT over Anroid. MSFT will pony up a lot more or their entry into mobile is toast is my guess. But they still do good S/W for computers. How does that grow fast or faster?

      Just my thoughts.
