This made me laugh today: Microsoft buys Nokia handset business
I live in the Land of Microsoft, which I roundly despise. The above article at 24/7 Wall Street asks an interesting question. Now that Microsoft has bought Nokia’s handset business, what are they going to do with a money-losing hardware concern?
My thoughts: Now they will have a guaranteed platform for their money-losing Windows Phone software. The Blue Screen of Death comes to your Phone!
Somehow, I think most people will pass on that proposition. Apple and Google have pretty much dominated the smartphone-software space, and Microsoft is just too slow-moving a behemoth to capture much of that market. So shelves at wireless carriers will carry lots of unsold handsets (if they carry the Nokia product at all). Good luck, behemoth!
