"Microsoft to Buy Nokia Mobile Business / Elop next Microsoft CEO?" That is what rules today´s headlines. I confess, I am less interessted in the furture of Microsoft, with or without Elop, but more in the future of Nokia.
Now, where the Microsoft-Muppet is leaving the burning platform, it might be a good idea to get back the former Maemo-Team which was fired by Elop and which is now underway as Jolla. The € 5.4 billion Microsoft pays for Nokia`s Mobile Business should be enough for such an offer, if there is not a contractual clause which forbids such deals for Nokia. A smartphone brand Jolla, instaedt of Lumia, by Nokia could ease the Finnish soul and might lure smartphone-fans back to Nokia, who did not symapathise with Microsoft.
Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
