That is the thing, Microsoft is not losing anything whatsoever on this deal. Personally I just think it is a Micorosft scheme to buy an established cell phone company for cheap so they can compete more directly with apple. Qt was just collateral damage.
I find the whole MS+Nokia fiasco to be comical.
MS "buys" Nokia (in a manner of speaking) in order to have Nokia drag them to the top.
Instead, MS drags Nokia to the bottom...
