Microsoft To Buy Nokia

Microsoft to acquire Nokia’s devices & services business for around $5 billion (Update: due early 2014)

Whoa. Big news from the middle of the night. According to Nokia, Microsoft will purchase “substantially” all of Nokia’s device and service arms as well as licensing the phone maker’s patents and mapping know-how. The Redmond company will pay Nokia a cool 3.79 billion euros ($4.99 billion) for the business, and 1.65 billion euros ($2.18 billion) for its patent armory.

Good move I would say, nobody wants windows on a phone … Isn’t it slow enough on a new high speed PC?
