One must remember in 2008 the tech press was reporting that it was Qualcomm that was on the ropes due to its IP steadily decreasing in value. But Qualcomm, whose CEO was a Ph.D. in EECS from Cal Berkeley, invested in developing their own ARM SoC as well as LTE baseband chips and bought AMD mobile graphics division for a complete smartphone solution. Meanwhile Nokia invested in neither a modern ARM SoC, unlike Apple and Qualcomm and Samsung, nor in LTE baseband chipsets, nor in foundry relationships unlike again Apple, Qualcomm, and Samsung.
Nokia the phone company was a dead man walking in 2008 long before Elop got there.
