What will the acquisition mean for us customers?
A lot of the talk has been about what the MS-Nokia deal means for MS's and Nokia's business or for Elop's carrer. Now I want to start a discussion about how the acquisition will affect the products and services that we, customers, use or will use.
Do you think the product lines of both companies will stay the same after the acquisition, or will they change? Will one be integrated into the other, will there be new ones?
Will they use some of Nokia's technology, features and design for the Surface line? Or the other way around?
Will we see some of Nokia's apps and services on Windows 8/RT devices?
Will the fusion of mobile and tablet production lead to the fusion of RT and WP?
