Microsoft has been a company who is used to dominate its fields. As we all know Microsoft dominates the software market with its goodwill, advances in its technology and through many more aspects. The only logical next step for Microsoft would be to tap in to the market of hardware.
In order to expand its range and tap in to the hardware market, the acquisition of Nokia by Microsoft promised many things but failure. It was first rumored that Microsoft were going to launch their own new line of mobile phones but Microsoft were quick to deny those rumors. Microsoft continued with the line of mobile phones which Nokia was already offering the Lumia.
It is no secret that this business venture has not witnessed anything but failure, downfall and loss. There were many negative points of those devices and a lot of non existent features which were in other devices which were its direct competitors. The public loyalty to the Apple Company and the goodwill of the Apple Company most certainly played a big role in the drastic losses which came crashing down on Microsoft.
