If was a Nokia shareholder, I'd be asking for a vote on the defacto
Microsoft buyout: MS CEO, check; ditch all our intellectual property for
MS product, check; MS President of Nokia USA, check; co-opted board of
directors, check.

Good luck to the company as a Microsoft business partner.  They're going
to need it.
