It's kind of sad to go by the mall and see the large Microsoft kiosk store void of customers. There's always some employees there trying to make the best of it.
The phone is probably dead man walking. If you read forums on the phone and Win10 it sounds like a mess. Too many phones with too many model numbers and no flagship phone. And a lot of features wont come to many of the phones. And there are stlll a lot of issues with Win10.
MS can do a lot of great things, but keeping the scope confined isn't one of them. Win 10 won't be out until fall and...maybe new phones?

What boggles my mind is that some folks (including some Finns, apparently) still think that Apple killed Nokia.
Instead, it was an inside job (of sorts), I think. They never shoulda hired that Vidkun Quisling dude as CEO.

Let's see... Elop came to Nokia with an undisclosed agenda on behalf of Microsoft... wrecked Nokia to the point where Microsoft could scoop it up cheap... and now gets to leave both companies with a fat golden parachute. Mission accomplished, sir!
Microsoft, too, achieved its goals: It got a phone manufacturing unit at a fire-sale price (thanks to Stephen "Burning Platform" Elop!), with no one hurt except the employees of Nokia, their families, and their communities. That's the sort of Win-Devastating Loss scenario that Microsoft calls a Win-Win!

I'm finding some difficulties understanding how something that you would, or would not do, has to make any impact on Mr. Nadella.
Beside that... I actually love my Win phone, and definitely warming up for Surface Pro 3. Not love yet, maybe, but in the air.
Exactly my thoughts. Flop flopped around killing MS's weaker competition so MS could pick up the pieces at fire sale prices.
I expect he got a top severance and will keep shut about his takeover game for MS.
