PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "While Nokia's CEO Stephen Elop has steered the company into a Microsoft future, not everyone is happy about it. Workers have walked out in Finland, and now a group of shareholders is planning a new strategy called "Nokia Plan B". The new plan has been formulated by a group of young Nokia shareholders who all have experience working for the company. None of them are happy with the decision to embrace Microsoft, and all of them plan to challenge the decision and strategy going forward."

They have plenty of software developers on staff which means the problem is management. You can hire the best mercenaries but you can't expect them to direct themselves into battle.
