According to a story on NPR, Not only did Stephen Elop once work for Microsoft, ( I didn't know that) but Nokia was already losing market share to IOS and the ad agency's os before Microsoft stepped in. (contrary to popular belief that WP was killing the Nokia brand) I still maintain this stands to be a big win for Microsoft going forward. And if Elop could move the mobile division of Microsoft in the direction we all hope to see, we are in for some beautiful devices very soon. Many which are probably already in development. The only bottleneck I can see, is these busy body carriers like Sprint that only want to push google branded devices and AT&T with its slow upgrade schedule. But for the devices themselves, the stars have aligned.
