    I don't know what would happen from Microsoft if this were to happen. Judging by the interview, Richard Yu didn't seem to receptive to Windows phone at all (although he must have forgotten that Microsoft are chasing them for some monies!.

    Thoughts on this? Could be a big hit to Windows Phone if Huawei were able to do the deed and change Nokia's current direction.

    It won't happen, Microsoft's more likely to buy them first if it comes down to it.

    That was a flash in the pan! Did good for Nokia shareholders for a while though:

    Nokia isn't for sale, is funded by the EU, and is to Finland what Swatch is to Switzerland

    If a company from China wants to do a hostile takeover, they're gonna hit a ton of walls

    Yup I read this week that negotiations between MS and Nokia regarding an acquisition fell apart recently so looks like Nokia will continue to ride solo
