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.

They use tizen. They just use it for leverage rather than product development.

I disagree. I think there will be a point soon when Google's Android is just holding Samsung back. And if they can leverage a compatible alternative that would avoid licensing fees it would make real sense to switch.
