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.

Nokia has such a great distribution channel and reputation. [...] You have the factories, you have the service centres and everything.

You are 1-2 years to late. Its all closed and gone already.

If customers want a Nokia Android phone make it happen

That doesn't go well with the self-declared war of ecosystems they are still on.
