PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has just sent out a few preliminary comments about the company's performance during the fourth quarter of 2012. Nokia's figures are a good indicator for how well Windows Phone 8 is doing, and, in all honesty, I'm not exactly blown away. Apparently, neither was Nokia itself, since the company decided to redefine their Asha phones from feature phone to smartphone to prop up their smartphone sales figures.

Firstly anything acquired by MS can be used for sinister purpose, after all MS has a reputation of the dark empire to uphold. But jokes aside, Nokia can fold into MS, and it would even may be benefit MS, but it'll end Nokia as an independent entity. For those who will rip off money on the deal - it maybe a good outcome, but for those who will lose jobs within Nokia it won't be, and for those who preferred Nokia to stay independent and to keep its own vision it won't be either.
