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.

When exactly is this profit warning coming? Because that was a month ago and it still hasn't come.

That was my whole point, I was well aware of that article and did indeed lend it some credibility..a month ago. We are now much closer to Q2 results and there has been no such warning.

Now I don't 100% preclude that from happening, and if they did stuff the channel last quarter we'll obviously see that in their Q2 report.

As it stands, Nokia has maybe 1 week or a week and a half to issue a profit warning. Q2 Report is July 19th.
