Microsoft has been one of the biggest names in the world of technology, as big as one can ever get.
While the company prepares to set forward their biggest launch in ages, the company is getting ready to release the windows 10 OS, and there has never been a more exciting time for Microsoft in the recent times.
Microsoft’s launch of Windows 10 is a big deal and has been making news almost every day since the announcement regarding it was made.
However, this pre launch hype of the Windows 10 has helped Microsoft in more ways than one, the massive publicity around the Windows 10 has helped the company’s negative coverage of the failure of the Nokia deal get buried in the news.
The Nokia deal, which was one of the biggest happenings in the world of technology last year, was expected to be one of the most beneficial things to happen to Microsoft, as the company geared up to boost their production of the Windows Phones as they got the full control this time.
However, the move was a major failure because the demand for the Windows Phone wasn’t as large as Microsoft had expected, and while the company did have power in production there was nothing that they could do to increase the sales.
Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia turned out to be a major loss for them as the company has by now bled out almost 7.6 Billion USD, and it was then followed by 7,800 people losing their jobs.
The Nokia deal was then written off and the company is now looking forward to get back to their older ways, i.e. they will probably not be producing the phones themselves but would work with other major names to have them create windows phones.
There are many companies which are today having their eyes all set on the gold, as they plan to acquire Nokia from Microsoft.
The leading names in the fold are those of Micromax and Xiaomi.
Two names which have off late sweeped off their respective countries as Micromax and Xiaomi have both become the top names in the countries of India and China, the top two populations of the world.
With either of them getting the Nokia company, this would give a major boost to their credibility as both the companies are probably looking at a global launch
