    • Andreas Hopf: No wonder, after the lackluster Kantar and Comscore figures showing how WP stalls after Nokia is now being phased out.

    • mitrado: They should've waited until WP grabbed more market share to buy $NOK. If they ruin Nokia they might as well throw W. Phone into a trashcan.

    • mitrado: I think they've rushed into buying $NOK. Nokia's sales were growing well... and now I fear $MSFT will kill that momentum completely.

    • Andreas Hopf: I still wonder why either 1. Microsoft thought licensing "Nokia" for smart devices is not necessary or 2. Nokia did not want to license it.

    • Andreas Hopf: Here in Europe, Nokia's devices are disappearing from shops and those that were in the process of finally taking them in abstained. So sad.

    • Andreas Hopf: Wishful thinking. The "cash cow" has run out of milk since 31st October 2013. Do Europeans and Asians want "MicroPhones"? I think not.
