Homework
Does this marriage between Microsoft and Nokia make sense to you?

I don't really think so because from Microsoft's perspective, Nokia's already using windows. It's unclear what additional do they get from this deal. I think they're buying the handsome opponent companies, that's what they buy, they are not buying the patents, so that I don't really think they are getting much. So from Microsoft's perspective, they want to develop an competitive ecosystem to compete with Android, Google's android, and Apple's Ios. Nokia was already using windows, so it's clear Microsoft what additional benefits Microsoft would get from this.

And they are spending a lot of money, 7 billion dollars for this. So if that doesn't make sense to you, we are wondering if there's something else, perhaps we don't know about. And you mentioned the patents, they have access to for ten years of their patents. Is there something in Nokia's patents that they could use are really putting them ahead of smart phones' rise.

It can help thing in future potential * with Apple and Google, or other players. That's for sure. But I think the more interesting thing really is Microsoft is making a move to *. They're going the way of Google potentially, with google purchasing Motorola mobility, and the way of apple, with apple is really the complete integration model in terms of hardware and software. And they think that's a benefit, having both hardware and software internally. You thought they already made some attempts on hardware before, with the Xbox, *, and more recently, with the surface.

These were not big success, so they need some sort of booster or some sort of help. And when I asked you what impact these all have on the low end smart phone market, does it take Nokia at the game?

That's an interesting run because Nokia really had two main platforms. They have Windows for the end and they had * phone that they were using for the low end market. And so, if possible, we don't know exactly what the strategies will be for Microsoft, but if possible, they may de-empharsize or even shut down Asia. It's very possible. And I think that's good for investors on low end player, which, the samsung, cause Samsung is actually very strong in both high end and low end, and Chinese such as Lenovo, Cool pad, Ziti and Hawei. So I think it could be potentially beneficial for those players, if Microsoft does de-empharsize the low end platforms.

Now as a result of this deal. Steven * who was the CEO of Nokia on Monday stepped down as CEO. Now he is gonna to be head of devices at Microsoft. We do know * will be leaving as CEO of Microsoft. There's some speculation that Steven * might succeed him. Do you think he has the right DNA to lead Microsoft and creat a new vision for Microsoft?

It's sort of really fit to me, I mean obviously that decision is for the board of Microsoft. Uh, from my perspective, you know I look at Microsoft and they are very good at Enterprise side and they've tried many times on the consumer side and failed. And so I think the movement to use someone like * focused more on devices is probably not a good strategy and so I would bet to default with that.
