Microsoft Nearly Acquired Nokia

Wall Street Journal:

Microsoft Corp. was recently in advanced discussions with Nokia Corp. about a purchase of the Finnish company’s device business, according to people familiar with the matter, in a marriage that could have reshaped the mobile-phone industry.

Fascinating stuff. Imagine a Surface Phone — a combination of Nokia’s hardware engineering, Windows Phone for the OS, and some dubstep in the ad.
