    I'm not sure I agree with that one. It's been a long time since Nokia has been a player so the Nokia name isn't very big anymore.

    It was expected to go out of business in a few years.
    what?! Why would anyone expect one of the biggest phone manufacturers to go out of business (OK except elop and other "people in the know")?! That's outright silly, it's like saying "people expect Toyota to go out of business in a few years".

    Tell that to Pan Am, Eastern, Plymouth, Pontiac, Saab and a few others.

    I didn't know it mattered. My point is that there have been large, successful companies around for decades which have been iconic in some instances and have gone "busto". Want to know how easy it is? Have the CEO of Toyota go on record as saying he hates Jews, Blacks and Hispanics and then sit back and watch.

    I'll be buying the Nokia Lumia 620.. Been saving for it for quite some time now and can't wait anymore to buy a smartphone.

    How will this acquisition affect existing and future Nokia users?

    Toyota would never allow such person to work for them let alone be CEO.

    You didn't think I was serious did you? It was a hypothetical scenario.

    For all the people that said that Nokia would have been better off going with Android - look at what is happening to HTC. There were new reports indicating that they are continuing to post huge loses even though they are one of the better Android OEMs out there. The HTC One couldn't even bring them back up even though it sold well. Sony, LG, and Motorola aren't doing too well either.

    Meanwhile others here are letting their hate of MS cloud their judgement. Even if MS could release an equal or better phone than what Nokia would deliver they would still hate it just because of the fact that it's from MS and they can't reminisce about some Nokia phone they bought 10 years ago.

    I agree, but...

    HTC doesn't do a breakdown of how many phones they sold, just like Nokia.
    LG and Sony are putting out serious gains.
    Motorola? ...I feel sorry for them getting snapped up by Google.

    486 posts on this thread so far and the deal hasn't passed shareholder approval or governmental approval. At the rate we're going, there will be no G-man approval. How about everybody take a deep breath and see how this all plays out. It's certainly not in the hands of 486 posters.

    Have there been any numbers showing LG and Sony's cell phone departments are doing well? Those two could easily hide losses considering all the different businesses each are in.
