Tomi Ahonen’s 11,000 word assessment on the Nokia-MS partnership: When Things Get Even Worse Than You Thought

Tomi Ahonen is known for his detailed and lengthy reports, and this is yet another one of those pieces of epic proportions. I have not read it yet as I have a meeting to go to, but have bookmarked it for a later read. N

When Things Get Even Worse Than You Thought – 1st Preview of Potential for Nokia Microsoft Partnership, short term 2011 and 2012

Tomi’s view prior to the MS-NOK Partnership had always seemed positive to me, but just based on the title alone, it doesn’t look too good.

And while my instant reaction on Twitter may have been a bit hasty and negative about Nokia-Microsoft partnership for smartphones, I have now done my first full, comprehensive analysis of its near term potential. And I am sorry to tell you. I was too optimistic over the weekend. It is far worse.

I hope I’ll find something positive when I get back and read his article.

Tomi is tweeting choice quotes right now which are not looking good:

Before #microsoft partnership #nokia smartphones brought 36% to Nokia total revenues. By end of 2011 will be 14%

If you’ve managed to read even a little bit of it, what do you reckon. Is it really that bad? Or is it so much worse than expected? Can’t anyone bring a convincingly positive outlook to this partnership?
