    End of an era. If you remember owning a Nokia dumbphone, you had an awesome childhood. Kids these days with their large screen slates will never understand the joys of playing Snake on a 84×48 green LED dot matrix.

      Something’s need to be left in the past. However if MS does manage Nokia’s intellectual property correctly they have a bright future indeed.

      No, the glory of the past should inspire the future, learn from what went wrong the first time, and improve upon that. :-]

      It’s not the end of an era, it’s the continuation, only with better software for everyone. 😉

      So is every other major software vendor, and it’s not bad, Microsoft stores our information to give us a better and more ”consumer friendly” experience, I’m happy that Microsoft does it, I’d willingly let Cortana read all my e’mails to get a more personalized Windows Phone. 🙂

      I politely disagree. Not saying perfect but President Obama is “only allowed to use blackberry” due to security reasons. there are other options, also can use sear engines like startpage and lets keep the net private, like it should be.

    This is really enlightening. I can’t wait to see how Microsoft meets consumer needs through combining hardware seamlessly with their software.
