That didn't take long.

I wonder how many ex Nokia employees continue to work for Microsoft.  I'm betting the number is dropping everyday and along with that the innovation that Nokia was well known for will slowly dribble away.

I believe it came out a while ago that Microsoft had only bought the rights to the Nokia name for 18 months or something like that, so this was a necessary change. More than half the Nokia employees that came to Microsoft are now gone. Going to be interesting to see how things go. I am still liking the hardware coming out of Microsoft. The surface pro 3 and handsets like the 830 and 930 are really good.
