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.

Really? That's odd. Everyone I know here in the UK is either a) technically illiterate and bought a cheap Windows Phone 7 because it was cheap b) are buying Android 'phones: mostly Nexus or Galaxy devices.

Update: the entire two people I knew who bought a cheap Windows Phone 7 device have apparently replaced them with...Android devices! Specifically, a Sony Experia and a Samsung Galaxy SIII. So that's -2 market share for Windows Phone in my universe, giving it an all time low of...0 devices!
