PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless How many N9's did Nokia sell, and how many Lumias did Nokia sell? It's an interesting thing to ponder, because estimates by Tomi T. Ahonen seem to indicate that, despite decidedly undermarketing the thing, the N9 faired considerably better in the marketplace than the Lumia did.

There is no need for Microsoft to buy Nokia : they already control its future. That's kind of the same of owning it, without the cost, nor the risk.

Let's be clear also that the root of the evil is not (just) Steven Elop, but the Nokia Board itself, which selected and protect Steven Elop. The members of the board themselves where selected by Microsoft. So Elop does not need to worry about its action being in the best interest of Microsoft, and against the interest of Nokia : he is protected in his mission by the board.
