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.

"With their stock, how is this an extreme prediction?


Same thing was said about Apple in the 90s now look at their market valuation.
"

The turnaround of Apple Inc. required an extraordinary intervention by both Steve Jobs and Microsoft. Unless we see such a similar extraordinary intervention at Nokia, I don't see how the two are comparable.

As someone else said above me, Nokia's Q2-Q4 results will show us the real picture.
