the last thing mr softee should do is get involved with any possible acquisition of nokia (or crackberry for that matter)
having said that they probably will
they've already bit the bullet and are manufacturing their own tablet. why can't they manufacture a smartphone that can compete with apple and samsung (my God they've got $70 billion in cash)?!?
- banish the guys who designed the previous windows phones
- poach whole departments from apple and samsung for design and manufacture of 'the new windows phone'
- design an open, windows os that's an extension of 'windows anywhere' os, but one that any manufacturer could simply plug their hardware into (and s#$%$ that metro-sexual tile #$%$!!!)
No way. Microsoft have tons more money than Huawei. Huawei is an untouchable in many countries because it is from China. Do you want Huawei to help whatever government to monitor your phone calls?
