    Why Nokia's Biggest Problem Is Microsoft

    Google it.

    "When Nokia (NOK) abandoned its own operating system (Symbian) in favor of WP, it was (probably) under the expectation that Microsoft (MSFT) would offer its users unique advantages of owning multiple Microsoft products. For instance, an effective WP ecosystem would make it more attractive to buy a Lumia phone if one already had W8 on the computer and subscribed to Office 365.

    "However, at this point, one has to conclude that Nokia's expectations haven't been completely fulfilled. Windows Phone simply isn't as big of a success as expected. So that brings us to the question of whether Nokia and Microsoft can turn the tide and significantly increase the WP market share. While there are many variables to analyze in an assessment of Nokia's future, I will only focus on the impact that the ecosystem will have on Nokia in this article."
