PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft was very close to take over Nokia, but that the talks eventually broke down, probably beyond repair - at least for now. The reasons the talks broke down illustrate something that I have repeatedly tried to make clear for a long time now: Nokia isn't doing well.

Let's see: try to take part of a still growing market or wallow in an extremely low growth market, spending tons of marketing money and getting nothing out of their investment.

Just because no one but samsung is making money off android doesn't mean everyone else is losing money hand over fist with android.

Nokia might have a better shot at using their name and hardware to actually push into the android market and possibly compete with Samsung.
