I agree. What they should be working on is touch/video keyboard to work with Win8 on a desktop. I won't be buying another computer or win8 till something close is available. Better yet give them away with win8.

"To date, Nokia's flagship Windows Phones, such as the Lumia 920, have received generally positive reviews, but have made little impact in the smartphone market . . ."

Duh, Lumia 920 is not available to buy yet!

As a serious computer expert of 30 years, I can say whoever ultimately made the decision at Nokia to team up with Microsoft was clueless. Somebody please name the companies who have done well for any length of time by teaming up with Microsoft because there are a massive number who have lost greatly or been destroyed in doing so. Now we get to see if Nokia will remain clueless. What should happen is all companies teaming with Microsoft should take the hit and drop them right now. They can team up with others instead. As their tablet and smartphone market crashed into oblivion, Microsoft would finally get the message that you don't screw your partners.

Ballmer you lying sack. You know I hope HTC and Samsung just kill you on the Jelly Bean side of things. Oh wait, they kind of already are.

But what a shitty thing to do to Nokia. Pefectly legal but highly unethical. Microsoft being Microsoft I guess.
