PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This rumour is not new, nor is it particularly earth-shattering. However, with Windows Phone 7 failing to make a dent in the market place, and Nokia's Lumia 800 not making huge waves either, the rumour's been taken out of the shed again: Microsoft is supposedly acquiring Nokia's smartphone division later this year. Stephen Elop will resign from Nokia shortly afterwards.

The Nokia Board of Directors obviously appointed Elop with the full knowledge that he would sell part of the operations to MS. That is why he was specifically hired.

Good point. This was Nokia which chose Elop. Now everyone disappointed with Elop should ask people who chose Elop why they did it.
