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.

"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."

Don't worry. Give it a little while, soon enough someone will come in and claim that this is bullshit, claim that they have "proof" that Nokia is doing fine, and insist that there's no problem. It's a typical occurrence of in the comments of news items like this regarding Nokia's bleak future. Too bad companies almost never go out with a bang and just disappear, and instead tend to drag themselves along making news for months or years as a zombie...
