Google is 20, Chrome is 10, and Microsoft would rather ignore the Nokia deal's 5th birthday

Nokia X, unlike their Windows phones, actually had potential.

If Nokia had have dropped Windows and committed more resources into X then Microsoft would have saved billions getting the same end result, and Nokia would still have been around.

In some parts of the world, "Nokia" was a generic term for "mobile phone". But not even that level of branding could have survived the negativity of Windows.
