Windows Microsoft has disclosed just which limitations Windows Phone 'Tango' will have on low-end devices (256MB RAM). It's pretty hefty - most importantly, the ability to 'multitask' has been disabled. Aren't there more powerful unlimited Android phones out there? What's the point of all this?

If it works Nokia as a company might be too expensive for MS to buy.

It would be expensive but not too expensive. Just call it merging and give MS enough share to control it.

Anyway, I don't think that will happen because EU won't allow Nokia to be sold to a US company.

Currently parts of Nokia (maps, phones, smarphones, NSN) have more projected market valuation that the whole. So buying the company, splitting, selling off unneeded parts to the Chinese may end up on 0 balance.
