PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Shares in Nokia plunged 17% after the mobile phone giant surprised investors by saying it expected to make losses in the first half of 2012. The Finnish company said competition in the industry had led to lower sales particularly in India, the Middle East, Africa and China. Nokia had previously expected to break even in the first quarter." And just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, the Lumia 900 is suffering from a software flaw, and the company has started offering $100 in compensation. Not a good start for such an important flagship device.

Android would not need the cash infusion that WP got from MSFT.
Only WP needs it because it is long dead in the water and being resucitated by billions of marketing dollars.

Only a fraction of that money might have given MeeGo the final polish it needed.
