PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Buried deep within Nokia's press release about its financial results, there's a line that pretty much signals the end of one of the most popular and successful mobile operating systems in history. With Nokia retiring its use, Symbian is no more.

Microsoft protects its OEMs.

Like they protected all those OEMs making PlaysForSure devices, right up until they torpedoed them with Zune? O.K.

I dont know if you have a stupid comment quota to meet or what. You'd almost be right if we were talking about Zune and Plays For Sure. Almost.

He is close with that comparision since Microsoft Surface Phone comes. How to compete against Microsoft with Microsoft's software?

I doubt Microsoft shields there partners. Specially not if they are of very less value for them any longer. The Apple vs Samsung case was about rounded corners, hardware. Unrelated to Microsoft's software on say Lumia.
