Networking is the scoop hunting
A Russian blogger, with good hooks in Nokia, argues that Microsoft is ready to buy even the Finnish giant, having taken home even Skype.
Edlar Murtazin Eun Russian blogger rather reliable: he had expected the agreement between Nokia and Microsoft have in December last year, when the agreement was eventually led in February 2011, and had announced weeks in advance official launch of Ovi Store. Now his prophecy, strong ties with some leading figures of the Finnish company, Nokia and Microsoft say they will begin to speak to a sales agreement by next week that could end later this year.
Nokia denies – Nokia was quick to refute the claims of Edlar Murtazin on Twitter , saying that his indiscretions are becoming less accurate with the passage of time. After ‘spurchase of Skype , Microsoft might well have focused the eyes on Nokia.
Benefits – Why Microsoft should buy Nokia? Microsoft has money. The company currently has about 32.6 billion U.S. dollars in tangible assets, while the indoor market capitalization of Nokia worth 32 billion U.S. dollars.After the acquisition of Skype and the purchase of Nokia, Microsoft would have all the ingredients to sell phone with complete VoIP solutions. The analyst Rob Enderle of Enderle Group believes that an agreement Nokia-Microsoft would be able to provide a real alternative to full around the world, even in the U.S., where Nokia is not as strong. Microsoft also become, immediately, a major player in the production of mobile solutions with a strong distribution network.
Disadvantages – Buy Nokia would be the elimination of Nokia. Acquired the phone part, the rest of the revenue of the Finnish giant will reduce the income coming from Navteq and Nokia Siemens Networks, which means that the whole business of Nokia would be reduced to digital mapping software and a joint venture with Siemens for services telecommunications. The experience of Microsoft in the production of mobile devices, for its part, has never proven to be equal to the situation: we had already tried buying the producer Danger in 2008 to 500 million dollars. And then the purchase of Nokia would have the philosophy against Microsoft: the other producers would have little interest in using Phone Windows 7 that would become a closed system. The idea, at least to Microsoft, was to provide an operating system and let the partner took care of the hardware.
