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.

Depressing indeed. I'll be keeping my N9 as long as it's viable. The Meego Harmattan guys are still releasing updates, but once that (eventually) dies I'm hoping that projects like Mer and Tizen pick up where they left off.

Goodbye Nokia. I'll always remember you for my first ever mobile phone I bought with my own money (my first phone was actually a gigantic OKI, but that was handed down from my dad), your swanky banana-phone (we had it here in Asia before Hollywood gave Keanu one for The Matrix) and your awesome internet tablets.
