PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This rumour is not new, nor is it particularly earth-shattering. However, with Windows Phone 7 failing to make a dent in the market place, and Nokia's Lumia 800 not making huge waves either, the rumour's been taken out of the shed again: Microsoft is supposedly acquiring Nokia's smartphone division later this year. Stephen Elop will resign from Nokia shortly afterwards.

Nokia has chosen to go the exact opposite route that it should have gone to.

Instead of continuing with their investment in a Linux mobile O/S, they are going the Microsoft way.

The Nokia directors will get huge bonuses for this though.

I love my N900 phone. I have overclocked it to 1 GHz and it works like a charm. I am not using it as a phone though, but as a small tablet for movies, music and internet. The open nature of it, the Linux internals make it the sweetest piece of hardware I've recently owned.

*sigh* we are never going to see another phone like our beloved N900's are we? ;)

I'm keeping mine as long as poss, had it 2 years so far and still going strong.
