"Nokia has nothing to do with Microsoft anymore. This is Nokia's Website after it sold its Nokia Devices & Services division to Microsoft: http://company.nokia.com/en "

Thanks for removing the misconception. I also thought that there is no more separate Nokia after MS's acquisition.

Thomas, 

"Microsoft start making products that as so good I have to buy them, instead of products that I have to buy because everyone else uses them."

Isn't the everyone using factor indicator that the products are good enough or is it that you seem to disagree with the product quality despite masses accept it ?

Impressed with the cloud apps
I haven't used many of MS's cloud apps but sharepoint and lync seems to be working great for me esp. link. Just got reminded that it is the same old Microsoft trying to climb the uphill. I think if similar products are invented on a regular basis, surely the synergies will continue to click.

Re: Nokia continues being a healthy company
@Micheal in my personal view does it not affected nokia over all as the things which were a hallmark are not their domain any more but other entities are still comming out with their name. I think it was not a good decision for nokia but a booster for MS. Since long nokia was my favourite but they did not travel in the right direction and suffered.

Re: Nokia continues being a healthy company
@Thomas I agree with you there. I have been a victim of this for quite some time. We have a linux base sytem in our working place, mobiles are total different entity, home user are windows based and so on and so forth. I basically like linux due to its less prone to malware and viruses but cannot help myself in the fight of these biggies to what to choose and what not.

Nadella's off to a good start but I'd like to see Microsoft start making products that as so good I have to buy them, instead of products that I have to buy because everyone else uses them.

Re: Nokia continues being a healthy company
Yes, Susan, great point, and one we could have highlighted more clearly. Microsoft didn't buy Nokia outright; it purchased Nokia's device business. What Microsoft didn't buy still operates under the Nokia name as a seperate company.

Whoopty, 

Nokia has nothing to do with Microsoft anymore. This is Nokia's Website after it sold its Nokia Devices & Services division to Microsoft: http://company.nokia.com/en

Nokia continues being a healthy company
MDMConsult, 

Nokia has nothing to do with Microsoft anymore. Nokia sold its Devices & Serices division to Microsoft and that was the end of that story. Now Nokia is focusing on its three other businesses.

Nokia continues being a healthy company with its other three divisions: Nokia Networks, Nokia Technologies, and HERE. Nokia Devices & Services was only one fourth of Nokia and the only division that Nokia sold. 

All the misundertanding about this comes from the fact that people don't usually make it clear and for that reason there is a misconception that Microsoft bought the whole Nokia, which is not true. 

It would be more accurate to always say Nokia Devices & Services division.

Nokia certainly has a better chance of fitting in at Microsoft now that it's 18,000 jobs lighter!
