Microsoft Buys Nokia Phone Division To Create ‘first-rate’ Smartphone Experience

Microsoft

Microsoft has finally sealed the deal with Nokia by acquiring their phone division and patents. They explain that they need a “first-rate” experience for smartphone users that they are not yet providing. They want to compete with the strength of Google and Apple. This more or less confirms that neither Microsoft or Nokia will be involved in the strategic opportunities BlackBerry announced it was looking into. On the other hand it shows the value of the hardware and the software being made by the same company. Microsoft revealed it makes $10 off every current Windows Phone and this deal will net them $40. Engadget has the details.

Either way this acquisition should raise BlackBerry’s stock based on the value Microsoft gave Nokia’s patents…

  1. yes, there is value in hardware assuming you provide evidence that you can market a new piece of hardware that leapfrogs the competition from time to time. Nokia’s hardware has been very polished, and their 41MP phone is in a class of its own.

    thats hardware value!

  2. I’ve only owned 2 Nokia phones long before I got my first Berry but they were solid devices at the time. Who knows what this might bring to the so called smartphone war

  3. I have already switched like 3 weeks ago to Lumia 925 from the bold 9900 and yeah the device is polished but very limited memory so hopefully it will speed up the improvements of the OS.

    I also hope BlackBerry creates something for Windows Platform either on the Metro App for Windows 8 or Phone like BBM or some type of Service.
