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.

Nokia could come back with a vengeance...

That is, if they launch a couple AOSP (think Nexus status) smartphones with excellent quality, good battery and interesting price, and available all over the world. Just a couple of phones, mid range (dual core) and top range (quad core).

They know how to build excellent quality phones, just look at the N9.

After that a nice tablet (7" or 8") and I think they would regain lots of brand status.
