If the Nokia buyout by Microsoft happens...

I'd expect the communication of the change of hands to go down poorly. Especially in some european countries and Mexico and India. How do you think Microsoft should handle it? Will this become another RT disaster? Do you think they will follow the same strategy that Nokia did with hardware releases? My own personal opinion: I don't think it's the right time for a buyout of Nokia's phone division. Even though Nokia were testing android on the handsets (no big surprise) they'd have stuck with windows phone until the end of the deal at least, and with Nokias support, I think the marketshare would only have gone up. Please excuse the formatting, IE8 hates me.
