    With the shareholders' approval, does this mean Microsoft can now use Nokia's Devices and Services division to start their projects? I know the deal won't be finalized until early next year, but I really hope they can start working together now as I can't wait to see what they can accomplish.

    I think the cross pollination process has already started.

    i myself believe they've already done this since WP8 released, as well as the acquisition

    Agreed.


    Their acquisition deal was in the works since last Feb.

    Thanks, I hope you're right. I really can't wait to see a Microsoft Lumia.

    They still have to act as separate entities. They can work together companies that do business with each other.

    The acquisition isn't finalized yet, so they still can't act like MS is calling the shots. MS can't control their products.

    Surface Phone with Snapdragon 1000, runs REAL Xbox games, mobile style (like Titanfall mobile, Forza mobile, etc), 5 inch screen, 3GB RAM, 32GB with microSD, 1080p display, 20MP camera, highly improved front camera (adding some Kinect features maybe?), high quality speakers and microphone, Surface and Lumia design combined, Qi or PMA wireless charging (needs cover, person can pick if they want Qi or PMA), gorilla glass 4, attachable keyboard (sold separately), runs windows phone 8.1, a massive battery (not just to help run these things better, to actually improve the battery life), and more. Yes, I am dreaming, but I'm sure Microsoft/Nokia at CES 2014 or 2015 or MWC 2014 or 2015 can release something very close to what I described. If they can do it, I'll buy ten!

    They can start working together once it is complete. Otherwise, they'd just fall victim to the antitrust laws.

    If they do manage to pull it off...

    Nokia Lumia Laptop with Haswell and with 1000 hour battery life, please ;)

    Maybe I'm missing something, but what on the list could not be done by Microsoft or Nokia working independently?

    Nope. Not until the EU & US authorities ok the deal.
