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.

Nokia has such a great distribution channel and reputation. They have the capacity to not have all their eggs in one basket. Business 101 is to adapt your company to technological changes and give the customers what they want. If customers want a Nokia Android phone make it happen. You have the factories, you have the service centres and everything. Just do it.
