PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Nokia has posted its quarterly results for the first quarter of 2013, and just like the quarters that came before, there's not a whole lot of good news in there. The rise in Lumia sales still can't even dream of making up for the sales drop in Symbian phones, and when broken down in versions, the sales figures for Windows Phone 8 Lumias in particular are very disappointing. In North America, Nokia is getting slaughtered.

they had the possibility to negotiate to only incorporate the Play market

Or use Ovi which was back then ahead of Google Play world-wide.

having a true possibility for differentiation with other manufacturers.

QT does on Android and Android apps on MeeGo just like Tizen is able to run Android and Bada apps. Even Blackberry went with an Android bridge. A pattern all those more successful then Nokia apply. Its only Elop who went on an ecosystem-war (and lost that). A fool to fight on such a front if it gives you nothing but lose.
