Nokia, the once undisputed titan of mobile phones and mobile phone sales, has final approval from shareholders to sell its mobile phone division off to Microsoft for $7.35b. In a landslide 99.7% of voting shareholders agreed to sell of the mobile division and move the company in a different direction. So the question now is. How will Microsoft take advantage of this new found hardware? It’s obvious they want Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 to succeed. Now that they have the hardware to do that with, how will they take advantage of that? Nokia has already shipped phones with Windows on them, how does actually owning the hardware going to make a difference. All one can do is speculate and wonder how this will all play out.
