If this is the best Nokia can do, then they should quit

Seriously, this is ridiculous. They have getting their butts kicked for the past 3 years in the smartphone market and this is the best they can do ? Has nokia ever heard of diversification ? HTC got it, Samsung got it, but Nokia just doesn't get it. Why does nokia think they can outsell all the other OS's when windows 7 has been selling miserably by HTC and Samsung over the past year ? This has nothing to do with which OS is better at this point. Big corporations are about making money, and making money only. So what would nokia have lost if they were to sell both Android and Win7 ?

The answer is that they wouldn't have lost anything and instead, NOkia would most likely own the Android market with their superior hardware. Most Nokia employees are convinced that their president Stephen Elop [ formerly from Microsoft] has been plotting against Nokia since day one. Based on what I see, it seems they have it right. Elop destroys Nokia, Microsoft takes them over in a fire sale, Elop gets a nice pat on the back plus a couple of billion in a secret Swiss account, and he lives happily ever after.

My advice for Nokia, fire Elop, hire some new blood, sell what sells, and trash the rest.
