...Nokia is neither sold nor bought YET! They are missing both approval of the share owners and from the EU, US and probably also from the Finnish government.
For Nokia Android would not be a race to the bottom because Nokia IS already on the bottom... if you do not earn anything then anything that would raise your earnings is a better solution even if it is Android.
This, if proven true, may in fact sabotage the Microsoft - Nokia merger plan...
I surely hope that most of Nokias shareholders will say "Thanks, but no thanks" to Microsoft and get Elop fired.
