PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia's vice president Bryan Biniak: "We are trying to evolve the cultural thinking [at Microsoft] to say 'time is of the essence'. Waiting until the end of your fiscal year when you need to close your targets, doesn't do us any good when I have phones to sell today." Later Biniak adds: "As a company we don't want to rely on somebody else and sit and wait for them to get it right." There was a simple solution to this problem.

Do not be surprised by Microsoft tactics

I would not be surprised if the "dragging feet" could be linked to some MS strategy. As far as I remember, MS relationship with big companies has always been a kind of "going to total domination" or assimilation.

Granted, I don't think they want to buy Nokia, they could do it some time ago after the PR blunt of Elop sent Nokia value to its lowest, but, perhaps, MS dream is to repeat the kind of partners subservience they had with "MS Windows", only that at this time it does not sounds possible.
