The Microsoft-Nokia Deal
On September 2, 2013, Microsoft announced that it was buying out Nokia’s devices business for $7.2 billion. ZDNet has this story covered from virtually every angle and from perspectives across the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia.
What the ZDNet experts say...
Maybe the Nokia buy makes it easier to envision cleaving Microsoft along devices and services lines.
Microsoft has a long way to go in both tablets and smartphones before it can really contend against Apple and Google's Android allies.
