Default Should Microsoft buy Nokia?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.businessinsider.com/microsoft-should-buy-its-way-onto-nokia-phones-2010-12' target='_blank'>http://www.businessinsider.com/micr...-phones-2010-12</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Fine. Then Microsoft should buy its way onto Nokia phones, either through an outright acquisition of the company, or through a major strategic investment along the lines of its 2007 investment into Facebook, which has paid off handsomely."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//wpt/auto/1294080121.usr110171.png" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>An interesting article by Matt Rosoff over at the Business Insider website postulates that now might be a great time for Microsoft to buy Nokia. Odd bedfellows? Certainly, but Matt makes an interesting set of points including the notion that Microsoft just cannot make enough money off mobile software operating system sales to make the finances work in the long term, Nokia has a huge marketshare for mobile handsets, the two companies have been cooperating on enterprise mobility for years, and Microsoft has cash on hand to do it. There's more to his logic, and it makes for an interesting read. I like one of his final points, and it's worth contemplating: will these two companies slide toward irrelevance if they don't merge? Intriguing idea. Hit the Read link and let us know your thoughts.</p>
