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.

Yeah--I'm sure you'll be there. ;)

But seriously, I'm just hoping *something* happens--either Nokia just outright fizzles out (at this point, I'd prefer this... just end it already...) or they just hurry up and quit flopping around like a suffocating fish out of the water. These Nokia progress reports, which never really show any good news and only bad, are just getting more and more annoying.

And no matter how you spin it, even Microsoft giving up on a chance to buy them is not a good sign.
