PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "One of the casualties of Nokia's latest cuts is Meltemi, the company's effort to create a new Linux-based operating system for low-end smartphones. The project was aimed at offering smartphones at prices that neither Android or Windows Phone could easily reach, but also would have required Nokia to try to woo developers for yet another operating system." I've said it before and I'll say it again: it's Elop's job to make Nokia as miserable as possible, so that when Microsoft finally makes its move, it can be seen a saviour rather than a predator. Everything that can be cut has to be cut to dive the price down.

Why don't Microsoft just get on with it and buy Nokia. But of course they'd wait till Nokia is at the crummiest then swallow it whole. I've always liked Nokia, my first ever phone was a Nokia back way then. I have moved on to Samsung though. I love my Note. However I also do think Lumias are really great phones. Lumia 900 - WOW. It run smoothly even with just one core. If Microsoft buys Nokia, I'm rather ambivalent. So be it, the world would still keep on spinning. Live as usual... move on.
