Microsoft's agreement to buy Nokia's handset business, codenamed Project Gold Medal, was more of a sprint than a marathon.

Talks between the two companies began in February after both sides agreed a two-year-old collaboration on smartphone development wasn't working, according to people familiar with the deal.

This cannot be true. Internet commenters told me in no uncertain terms that Nokia and Windows Phone were doing just fine. And internet commenters are always right.

Oh, wow. You're actually taking this story seriously. Oh my.

The source is Bloomberg. If it was a link to "Joe's Awesome Nokia Blog", I'd agree, but it's freaking BLOOMBERG
