PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless A perennial question that revolves around Nokia is: why didn't it choose to go with Android to replace Symbian when it decided to kill that as its smartphone operating system in late 2010?

Yes, selling their HQ to become profitable is a sustainable strategy. Going from 30% marketshare to 5% is too. Their devices and services devision has been producing losses up to last quarter, that were only offset by NSN and one-time effects.

Did they sell their HQ three quarters in a row? You're confusing me.

Do you have proof to show that their HQ sale is the only reason they became profitable? I'm sure you do. I'd like to see it.

I can't tell if you are confused, but it wouldn't suprise me either.

I did not say that the HQ sale is the only reason. I said it is a combination of the HQ sale and one time effects (including Vertu sale, selling patents to patent trolls etc.).
