    Special edition: Microsoft purchases Nokia 




    Conversation this week  




    One of the more questionable rumours of this year has come to fruition as Microsoft has announced intentions to purchase Nokia’s devices and services business unit. We go through the facts and the important discussion points. 




    Microsoft’s slides link: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=33AB03F0B0091FCB!21846&authkey=!AHp2qnRpOXn6GWg   




    The facts  





    Microsoft has announced intentions to purchase Nokia’s devices and services unit 



    Including licenses to all of Nokia’s patents for all products but NOT ownership of the entire patent portfolio 



    Microsoft will however acquire 8500 design patents 



    The bid is $7.2 Billion 



    Purchase is due to close in Q1 2014 subject to shareholder approval and regulatory agreement 



    Includes the transfer of staff including Elop 



    Elop will be VP of the new “expanded” devices unit initially working parallel to Julie Larson-Green’s team, but eventually she will join his group 



    Elop is now, as he always was, a candidate for the Microsoft CEO position 



    Once the purchase is complete, the Nokia brand will not appear on smartphones (feature phones limited to 10 years) 



    Microsoft have purchased the Lumia and Asha trademarks 



    Microsoft has NOT purchased the HERE services group, will be a customer for the next 4 years 



    There are no announced changes to the operating system team 



    It is planned that one set of supporting services will be utilised across all Microsoft devices, this will eventually include Nokia’s services (other than HERE) 



    No significant plans have been announced in regards to moving teams geographically, although some minor shuffling is to be expected 







    Discussion 





    With the Lumia brand staying, but the Nokia brand out the door, is this acquisition positive news for market share? 



    Surface phone? Or just Lumia? 



    Nokia’s lead designer is not part of the deal, will more Finnish engineers follow or will they continue to work for Nokia? 



    How might the acquisition affect software development of the Windows Phone platform? 



    The deal only involves 4 years of HERE licensing, what is the future for the HERE platform on Windows Phone? 



    We know about the HERE platform, but where does this leave other services such as Nokia Music? 



    Does this change how exclusive Nokia apps are developed, will said exclusives now become available across the entire platform? (Credit to @VanillaForg) 



    How does this affect developers and the enhanced Nokia SDKs + Incentive programs 



    What can consumers expect to change? 



    The new devices unit will have more budget than Nokia did, does this mean more devices or more research? 



    Will the other players in the Windows Phone OEM game be affected positively or negatively? 



    How will Microsoft’s tablet business be affected considering the upcoming Nokia announcements? 



    Is there anything to the conspiracy theories involving Elop?

Most Informative Windows Phone Podcast Available

Great podcast even though I switched back to Apple, I love listening to you guys.

Gavirkh ,

great podcast

Insightful and entertaining commentary, can't wait too tune in every few weeks to bring myself up to date.

Crazyphoneguy ,

I've listened to every podcast (bring back Dieter!)

I'm not a WinMo user currently, but I've listened to every single WMExperts podcast. Dieter and Mal have great knowledge of the Windows Mobile platform, and have such fun talking about it. Even after I moved on to Blackberry and then S60, I still continue listening to this podcast. It's a must if you like or use Windows Mobile, and is informative for anyone who follows Mobile Tech in general.
