I don't buy that Nokia would be in any different a position as an Android OEM. The only difference would be that their phones wouldn't be anywhere near as pretty.
If you care whatsoever about Xbox, then you would be asking for another head of division asap.
As for your second paragraph, why wouldnt the phones be as well designed without him in charge?....what does he, or Microsoft, have to do with that?
Under Elop Nokia has:
- Lost huge amount of marketshare
- Discontinued their 2 OSs (one of them being better received than WP)
- Made their handsets WP exclusive, later selling the whole division to MS.
Then add to that not investing anything at all on Android, which still surpasses WP on every single way (growth, marketshare, amount of developers, oem's, etc).
Lumias have been selling, but I would love to see the roi on that given how much marketing and the rock bottom prices the handsets have had.
