PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft was very close to take over Nokia, but that the talks eventually broke down, probably beyond repair - at least for now. The reasons the talks broke down illustrate something that I have repeatedly tried to make clear for a long time now: Nokia isn't doing well.

Me too.

Tizen is just another dead born project to join Maemo and Meego.

From the outside it looks like a few telecomunications projects I took part on that kept R&D busy for years without real customers on the outside.

No sane developer will pick it over the existing operating systems for native apps and for web based ones, it does not offer any advantage anyway.
