PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And the burning platform is still, uhm, burning. "Chief Executive Stephen Elop is placing hopes of a turnaround on a new range of smartphones called Lumia, which use largely untried Microsoft software. But Lumia sales have so far been slow, disappointing investors." It's a shame to see a once proud company in such a downward spiral, but alas, it's the way of business. If you get complacent - as Nokia had gotten - you will fail.

Firing engineers?

I suppose they will fire the engineers. This is insane. They executed their job very well. The management failed. The strategy is a total failure despite being very well executed by the engineers. Elop's bonus probably equals the salary of those 10000 engineers. They should fire the management but as usual, the ones who actually perform are the one who pay and the ones who fail are the one who don't take any risk.
