PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has posted its quarterly results for the first quarter of 2013, and just like the quarters that came before, there's not a whole lot of good news in there. The rise in Lumia sales still can't even dream of making up for the sales drop in Symbian phones, and when broken down in versions, the sales figures for Windows Phone 8 Lumias in particular are very disappointing. In North America, Nokia is getting slaughtered.

If I were Nokia....

I'd fire Elop, jettison windows phone, and purchase Jolla.

They've solved their "we have x competing platforms" problem -- they now have zero viable platforms, and have jettisoned all the competing smart-phone divisions.

One more focus shift (back to your roots) may get people clamoring for the jolla (errr, nokia of yore) product.

It's a crazy idea, I know, but let's face it, lumia hardware with sailfish would be a good combo, and put nokia back into a position where they control their own destiny.

Heck, I'd buy one of those phone. Windows Phone? Heck no. I don't care if it's a good product. It's got the name "windows" in it.

I don't think Microsoft realizes what a tainted brand they have in "windows".
