Other companies like HTC , Motorola, and Samsung, etc., are using
multiple platforms, Android and other Linux flavors and in most cases
they have their own chips or multiple choices of processors, so why
would Nokia with 3 existing choices end all of them and surrender its
future to another company ? and why only Qualcomm for processors ? why
not Symbian, Linux - Android and MS and multiple choices for chips ?
If they were ready to spend 1 billion euros to purchase Palm a few
months ago, how can they say they cannot afford 3 platforms ? for
50-100 million euros they could have their own Linux option,so why
then become the slaves of another company ? in my opinion this
decision is a fraud from some of the Board of Directors members, and
most likely to crash the Stock Value of Nokia and make it easy for a
few Hedge-Funds , Investment Bankers and Private Equity Partners to
buy Nokia for very little money, a total organized fraud .
In my opinion, the Authorities in Finland and the EU should
investigate why the Board of Directors of Nokia would make such a bad
decision and against the short and long term interests and benefits of
Nokia, in my opinion there is clearly collusion between some of the
executives of Nokia, Microsoft, Qualcomm and their lawyers, advisers
and bankers, this is criminal fraud and a full Investigation is due.
Also these legal tax points are important :
a) Nokia got huge tax credits, tax benefits and R&D Aid to develop new
products, new patents and new jobs and business opportunities , from
the Government of Finland, Nordic Agencies and from the EU .
b) Nokia got also many general, security, intelligence , etc.,
Contracts from official agencies in Finland, Nordic countries and the
To give away all these grants, official aid and tax cuts by becoming
totally dependent on Microsoft and Qualcomm exclusively is equal to
transferring all these taxpayers assets to other companies , at the
very minimum this is criminal incompetence.
Here is the Board of Directors of Nokia, the ones who have approved
these decisions even before the May, 3, 2011 Stockholders Meeting :
