    No benefit for us, my dear colleague.

    The moment M$oft puts it's hand on some hardware manufacturer marks the end of that manufacturer. Bye, bye, good Nokia phones, good morning to neverending problems, bugs, BSODs etc.

    I'll suggest the new name for this merger: Micro$oftia.

    Lol. That about sums it up


    Pretty much. Don't expect the quality Nokia once produced now that Microsoft has their claws in them.

    All they needed to do was build an Android phone, the company is still stuck in the 1990's.

    MS is already one of the best companies to work in here in Finland. But anyway, this was logical move.

    ms is building a new datacenter to finland \o/ huzzah. Nah I'm not exactly worried that ms bought nokias phone line, since nokia didn't have the resources to compete anymore anyways, while ms does.

    nothing will change where i live:
    -selling nokia phone is like selling a car with square wheel
    -windows phone is only "on demand" and no more in shop since a long time

    another Balmerosoft's fail that his successor will have to do with.

    I miss Bill Gates. It wasn't commonly called Microshaft when he was in charge.

    Stephen Elop: -mission completed-

    hahaha now he is coming back to msft's HQ with a new army to kill android and ios, he earned the CEO chair imo

    well now they gonna call em Lumia xxx instead of "nokia lumia xxx" the "nokia" part makes it a double branded thing like "apple iphone" well you know what i mean... i hope it doesnt end like "microsoft lumia xxxx" that would be awful, all im worried about is if they can keep the superb build quality, distintic designs and camera superiority that nokia is known for, they better do
