I think this should not be a merge as such because Microsoft and Nokia both are good companioes which have stabilized their names in the field. If they merge we will loose 2 best companies and the merge will change the thinking aspects of the 2 companies which I feel will harm the market alot.

Should Microsoft puts cards on the table for offer would Nokia accept to play? And how would acquisition of Finnish giant techie impact on socio-economy of people there thereafter? Finnish government also acknowledged its substantial contribution to the country's GDP as well as transformation the country has withness since Nokia phone hit world market.

Microsoft and Nokia are a natural pair in light of what both seem to need.  Nokia needs Microsoft to prove they are in it to stay and Microsoft needs a legitamate telephone platform after previous fizzles.  Judging from the adverts on TV, they are in it together, so they might as well make it official

"The alliance with Nokia in the smartphone market gives it a good opportunity to light a fuse under Windows OS for mobile devices, but the market response has so far been lukewarm"

But why the market should change behavior if Microsoft presents a Hardware product with windows Os on it?

well for me, even if MS acquires Nokia and there is no vision, something that can steal the attention of consumers to its products, it  will still be the same old story.

Someone at Microsoft had a similar idea. The company just announced it will offer its own tablet PC. This marks the first time Microsoft is directly in competition with its software customers in the operating system market. I thought it made sense for Microsoft to do this but now we watch and wait for customer reaction.

In already crowded segement of PC, iPad and smartphone, launching a new brand can not be a good idea. Many comanies are already struggling to keep their brand afloat and one of them is Nokia. Acquiring Nokia can be an option at this stage for Microsoft given the low purchase value but the turnaround of Nokia in smartphone segment will be a textbook casestudy. Rather, MS should focus on better software and try to convince more hardware companies to use the platform to be able to compete with iOS and Android.

In my opinion, it will be best in its interest for Microsoft to launch its own Tablets and smartphones rather than carrying the legacy of a brand that has already taken a lot of beating in the smartphones market.

Having its own brand products will definitely give a fresh look to its products.

Barbara, Microsoft today announced the debut of Surface, its tablet PC. The product is aimed directly at the iPad and similar devices. See: Microsoft Windows 8 Surface Tablets: Big Hardware Play.

You make a good argument for Microsoft developing its own tablet and/or smartphone. Another example of "never say never" when it comes to the high-tech industry.
