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.

If Nokia strength is on hardware, the bad news here is it became a commodity some time ago. On a software side of things, open-source is sailing winds those days with few exception. The thing is, they sailed away from their core competence long ago and took ages to realize it. Too bad, I had more Nokias than anything else before but I am not in the market anymore... good luck with that.

I disagree. Build quality is what sells HTC One's. A good camera is what sells lumia 720s. I wish Nokia would take a few Windows Phones and just put Android on them and sell them in secret on a almost impossible to find website. Like developer devices.
