Legal I love it when ancient proverbs come to life. If you can't compete, litigate. Right, Nokia? It's suing HTC, RIM, and Viewsonic in the US and Germany over 45 FRAND patents. The world is so predictable, and the technology world even more so. Ever since Microsoft got its claws on this company, its morals and values have been going downhill.

Better compare to SCO?

I'd almost liken nokia now to SCO which was used to front end legal attacks against MS's competitors.

It doesn't seem like Nokia's core business matters to them anymore. Samsung, LG, HTC, etc. seem to all be constantly making changes and releasing and exploring multiple products to keep a feel of the market, allowing them to change direction quickly if need be.

Nokia seems to have put on blinders and have gone full steam ahead, market be damned. Elop pretty much doubly harpooned Nokia's own core business making huge announcements showing zero flexibility. And what they have to show for it is a plummeting share of one of the the fastest growth markets worldwide.
