Do you suppose that may be why they are buying Nokia?

Microsoft is not buying Nokia. They’re partnering with Nokia, to get Nokia to use Windows Phone 7 as the OS.

Yes it is. Nokia is going to shelve their Phone OS in favor of Windows. The purchase of Skype is also part of the scheme. Their is method to their madness.

Whether this madness will succeed is going to be interesting to watch.

Somehow, I think the next few years will either see Microsoft dominant once again or just a shell of their former self.
