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 for me

I don't like Android (although, I love GNU/Linux and open solutions). Therefore, I have to look for something else now, especially because Symbian is dead. My current mobile is still Nokia N8 - great, compact camera plus some additional features. The original Nokia's browser is terrible, so I use Opera's one.

Now, I would like to have a hardware which is an evolution from N8 with Windows Mobile 8 on it. As far as I can see, all Windows Mobile powered Nokias are to some level limited.
