There’s more information on the sell-out by Nokia to M$. Nokia expects to receive $billions from M$… Whatever happened to businesses making money by selling products to customers??? Just like ASUS sold out the eeePC to M$ for short-term gain which resulted in shrunken growth, Nokia will be paid not to grow and compete with M$.
This is all the more reason to avoid both M$ and Nokia. Neither one provides a good deal for consumers who now have better choices. I expect M$’s business model to decline more swiftly if they buy out competitors instead of producing superior products with the money. M$ cannot possibly buy out all their competition. This should harm share prices, future sales and reputations.
