Weekend Read: Why Microsoft Shouldn’t Acquire Nokia

microsoft-nokiaLast week we heard a bunch of stories/rumors regarding potential buyouts of Nokia; namely from Huawei and Microsoft. When the story of talks between Microsoft and Nokia fell through I felt something was off, especially since Microsoft didn’t seem to gain anything from purchasing a company that was already 100% committed to their platform (and doing more work then they themselves were doing). Here’s an interesting read on a couple reasons why Microsoft’s buyout of Nokia doesn’t sound reasonable, with some very good points. Mainly why would Nokia agree to only sell their devices decision and not the whole company? Especially as pointed out that it would be cheaper for Microsoft to buy the whole company flat out.

One good thing from all these rumors, is the fact that it has helped surge Nokia’s stock prices (currently $3.93/share); so we thought we’d do our part and help our beloved company by putting in some rumors of our own 😛

Thanks for the tip ms.nokia
