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.

RE[2]: Go ahead and short

Nokia has been imminently dying for a while here at OSNews.

The Register had the same buyout story 12 months ago -- Since then the Nokia stock is up 50%.

In my short time on OSnews I've come to learn that:
- Nokia is always 90 days from bankruptcy.
- Every new Microsoft product and/or announcement is a sure sign of their impending doom.
- [Insert Year Here] will be the year of the Linux desktop. ;)
