A sad day, but not in the slightest bit surprising. Even Elop’s letter to his staff was just as I’d have expected – but of course he’s done quite well for himself out of the whole relationship with Nokia.

Personally, I can’t wait until Nokia can be re-born in 2015 and hopefully start to make a name for itself once more, free from the shackles of Microsoft. Sure, it will need to rebuild and establish everything needed to produce hardware, but it’s nothing that can’t be done – especially when there are now thousands of people who have an added incentive.
Sad news for today, but possibly great news for tomorrow. Is this a new beginning for Nokia? A brand that I firmly believe can be restored to its former glory.
