Microsoft's Nokia stranglehold

Microsoft's influence over Nokia was clearly evident at the Lumia 920 launch and while Microsoft can afford for Windows 8 to flop, Nokia doesn't have that luxury.

Claims of a Faustian pact between Nokia and Microsoft were given credence by the launch of Nokia's Lumia 920 in New York. Rarely have I seen such a locked-down product launch, with Nokia limited to only discussing its own Windows Phone 8 features. Even then Nokia did a poor job, harping on about the camera while LTE mobile broadband, Near Field Communications and wireless charging took a back seat.
