PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia just posted its quarterly results - including shipped devices - and it's not looking good. Massive losses, sales dropping, and no growth in Lumia sales in the US. The company is losing money hand-over-fist, and with Windows Phone 8 still months away, the company warns the next quarter will be just as bad.

DirectX would have been a great value proposition half a decade ago.

However, it is now irrelevant given the market share of iOS and Android, which means that Microsoft can no longer use their main weapon for effect; their desktop monopoly. Especially given how Windows 8/Metro are a completely unknown quantity.

Nokia and RIM are pretty much dead in the water right now, they will most probably become either targets for acquisition or bankruptcy proceedings. Probably M$ is waiting for Nokia to go even deeper into trouble, so they can buy it for peanuts. Oh, well.
