    Hi Timo,

    If I understand correctly, you think Nokia didn't dump the Symbian OS for Maemo, but for Windows 8.

    I believe your argument would be valid had Nokia not accepted a hefty $1billion from Microsoft for Window 8 being exclusive to Nokia's range of smartphone. And this only happened when there was a delay with Meego. It appears or rather seem to collect the huge cash from MS would have been a better idea since Android was open source and were not getting a dime from Google.

    At that point, Nokia thought whatever OS is released with the company's logo stamped on it would be an automatic success. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case.

    Thanks for dropping by friend.

    I could provide few corrections to last point

    1) Maemo was not disaster at all, but success, that lead to Meego.

    2) Nokia didn't decided to dump Symbian OS for Maemo, but for Windows Phone

    3) Maemo and Moblin was merged to Meego, not with Meego

    4) The N9 was Meego OS Phone and it had a big WOW factor. e.g. German's biggest magazine was recommending people to travel to other country to get it. and got major design award where it beat e.g. ipad2 .

    However, the new CEO Elop that came from Microsoft didn't wanted to sell those phones, but focused all resources to drive Windows Phone.

    So actually the beginning of this post is very valid with looking new CEO and seeing that with other than Windows Phone Nokia would have gone much better.

    Been following your blog recently and you doing just great. Nice article. I see Nokia as the Volvo of the auto industry. When every other manufacturer was busying carrying out research, Volvo wasn't moved. Today, that same company which competed with Mercedes Benz in the automobile industry is still struggling to make impact. Maybe a lesson from Ford would change themselves.

    There is no way Nokia is going to have a come back. 14 years being at the top seems pretty long.

    I feel sorry for Nokia. Now, they have to take the consequence of mistakes made by Microsoft.
