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.

RE[3]: Its a restructuring

"By now", not 10% ever. Its a great start. I'm sure HTC (who's not looking too good lately either) would love to have a couple million more Windows Phones sold under its belt.

PUHLEEZE! As if HTC would bother to pump more money into a business to help out a "partner" get traction on its struggling platform without any clear signs from the market of return of that investment when said partner leeches whatever it can from their other somewhat successful business with bullshit patent racketeering and recently has told them loud and clear that it doesn't want to help them to generate some extra income with its upcoming tablet business, for $DEITY's sake!

If I were in a decision taking position at HTC, I'd be begging the board to discuss ways to split ways with Microsoft, not to increase an already abusive relationship with them.
