Pauline Chiou: Does this marriage between Microsoft and Nokia make sense to you?

Mark Newman: I don’t really think so, because from Microsoft’s perspective, Nokia has already been using Windows. It is unclear what additional do they get from this deal. I think ? they are buying damns opponent companies, that is what they are buying, they are not buying the patents. So I don’t really think they are getting much, from Microsoft’s perspective, they want to develop a competitive eco-system to compete with Android, Google’s Android, and Apple’s IOS. And Nokia has already been using Windows, it is unclear what additional benefit Microsoft really get from this.

Pauline Chiou: They are spending a lot of money—7 billion in dollars—for this, so if it doesn’t make sense to you, I wonder if there is something else perhaps we don’t know about. I mean you mentioned the patens they have access to, for ten years to their patents. I mean is there something in Nokia’s patens they could use or are really put them ahead in the smart phone race.

Mark Newman: Well, it can help then in future potential litigation with Apple, Google or any other player. That is for sure, but I think more interesting thing really is Microsoft is making a move to value it immediately. They are going to (weigh off) Google potentially, with Google purchased Motorola Mobility and weigh off Apple, with Apple is really the completely work to integrate the model in terms of hardware and software. And they think that is a benefit, having both hardware and software internally. You saw they already made some attempts in hardware before, with the X-box, and Zune and more recently with the Surface.

Pauline Chiou: These were not of big successes so they need some sort of booster, some sort of help. And when I asked you what impact these all have on the low and smart phone market. Does it take Nokia out of the game?

Mark Newman: That an interesting one, because Nokia really had two main platforms—they have Windows for the high-end and have this Asha platform that we’re using for the low-end of the market. So if possible, we don’t exactly what strategy will be of Microsoft, but it is possible they make deemphasizes and even shut down Asha, it is very possible. And I think that is good for rest of the low players, which is Samsung, because Samsung is actually is very strong in both the high end and the low end, and the Chinese such Lenovo, Coolpad, ZTE, Huawei. Something could be potentially very beneficial for those players if Microsoft does deemphasize the low-end platform.

Pauline Chiou: Now as a result of this big deal, Stephen Elop who was the CEO of Nokia, on Monday stepped down as a CEO. Now he is gonna be head of devices at Microsoft. We do know that Steve Ballmer is going to be leaving as the CEO of Microsoft. There is some speculation Stephen Elop might succeed him. Do you think he has the right DNA to lead Microsoft and to create a new vision for Microsoft?

Mark Newman: Ye~ it seam really clear to me, I think obviously that decision is for the board of Microsoft. From my perspective. I look Microsoft and I think they are very good at the enterprise side. And they’ve tried many times on the consumer sides and failed. And so I think the movement to use someone like Stephen Elop focused more on devices is probably not a good strategy, so I would bet to default with that.
