The Finn's have lived next to the Soviet Union and still maintain its independence. American stock buyers that think Elop is a Trojan horse and Nokia will be bought out by Microsoft on the cheap is misguided. I think it is the Finn's themselves that is playing dead and want to buy Nokia shares on the cheap.
MSFT is not a true partner to nok. Msft's intention are evil and as such msft sees nok as its future competitor and is trying to kill it off slowly by making its own tablet and then spreading rumors that it will soon be making its own windows phones, imo. All the sludge about nok is imo being spread by msft. What i don't understand is the nok board. Is this difficult to discern? nok was talking of making tablet and now msft took over that. Can't they see the writing on the wall where they are headed with evil msft, imo.
I say start making phones for both droid and windows just like samsung. Why not? Can somebody give me one good reason why not other than the sheer stupidity of eflop and nok board????
