    Many might not know about it, but BMW and Mercedes Benz have a joint venture that purchases all car components for them. Yes, it saves them a fortune every year. Yes, many components in a BMW and Mercedes Benz are the same... You just don't see them.

    Nokia and HTC should do the same and share components... Buy batteries, SOCs, displays, switches, small parts together! It could save them up to 20% in components costs! It avoids a merger, maintains two independent companies. It just requires them to share some information during engineering. No one would notice if a HTC Android and a WP Nokia share some inside components!

    That's an interesting idea, but I'm not sure either HTC or Nokia would consider doing this.
