PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia's results for the first quarter are in... And it's grim. Very grim. We're looking at a net loss of EUR 929 million, an almost complete collapse compared to last year's EUR 344 million profit. It's also almost double the loss analysts expected. Revenue dropped by 29%, too.

I'm sure the Tizen/Mer/KDE chaps would be more than happy to help them get a non-windows smartphone to market quickly.

I'd rather that than they approach Google, but both could only be a Good Thing for Nokia.

Close. Nokia asked Google for a deal like the one they have, where they had special rights to the code over other vendors. Google told them no.

I have read the article with this information in it but no longer have a link to it, so as you suggest, googling for it is recommended.
