Sad to hear that :(.

I'm sure that the resulting company will be a smartphone-only company. Adieu King of feature phones.

^ may be Stephen Elop was there in Nokia to make this come true for microsoft.
he failed to make nokia profitable i wonder if share holders of microsoft will agree him as a ceo.

Eagerly waiting for a phone with Microsoft on the backside with Windows logo at the front. :mrgreen:
Now, that's a direct competition to Google..

As Motorola is to Google, Nokia is to Microsoft.

Microsoft is also acquiring Nokia’s Mobile Phones business unit, which serves hundreds of millions of customers worldwide, and had sales of 53.7 million units in the second quarter of 2013. Microsoft will acquire the Asha brand and will license the Nokia brand for use with current Nokia mobile phone products. Nokia will continue to own and manage the Nokia brand. This element provides Microsoft with the opportunity to extend its service offerings to a far wider group around the world while allowing Nokia’s mobile phones to serve as an on-ramp to Windows Phone.

Motorola died after being acquired by Google. The recent Moto-X , only for the US market :x , might do a little along with Droids. I don't want this to happen to Nokia :x.
BTW thats the Gearbox Law

I am very sad to hear this. I think there is some huge corporate conspiracy. Stephen Elop was sent by Microsoft to weaken Nokia.
