This is exactly what happened. Nokia approached MS and Google. MS made a more compelling case and Nokia accepted.

I expect Nokia to massively cut staff numbers and close facilities over the next 2-3 years.

I thought I had seen an article about how they already fired 6000 Symbian developers at Nokia, but it was just a prediction of people at Nokia in an FT-article.

It's rumored they also went to RIM.
