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.

There are no licensing fees to Android. There would be to Tizen, however, if it were to run Android applications flawlessly. Plenty of applications depend on things like Google Maps, which is not part of the base AOSP distribution (and without which Android pretty much sucks).

Oh, and before Android is "holding Samsung back", Tizen at least will have to catch up with it. Which it won't -- ever. Hell, Tizen hasn't even caught up with MeeGo Harmattan.
