The latest hit came from China where phone vendors said they didn't want to sell domestic models running the Windows Phone, because they just struggle against the cheaper Android phones.
I don't see how that's a "hit" for Nokia, but maybe the author is on medication today.
At any rate, why doesn't Microsoft just give phone OEMs in China Windows 8 mobile licensing for free?
They wanna win don't they? Why are they being so stupid with all this licensing that nobody really wants, especially not Chinese factories.
Just let go of the old ways, and compete. Then tell us about it as it's happening.
