PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "One of the casualties of Nokia's latest cuts is Meltemi, the company's effort to create a new Linux-based operating system for low-end smartphones. The project was aimed at offering smartphones at prices that neither Android or Windows Phone could easily reach, but also would have required Nokia to try to woo developers for yet another operating system." I've said it before and I'll say it again: it's Elop's job to make Nokia as miserable as possible, so that when Microsoft finally makes its move, it can be seen a saviour rather than a predator. Everything that can be cut has to be cut to dive the price down.

If your caviar is not selling, salt your potato fields.

Calling Elop a Trojan horse is wrong. Trojans didn't surrender and let the Greeks ride into the city on rocking horses.

Elop is like an abusive boyfriend who's loaded uncle is an mafioso in need of an organ donor. Nokia hoped for commitment and financial aid, but she's going to find herself in a ditch without her kidneys (patents).
