Dan: 'In a battle of balance sheets, which is ultimately what the console gaming war proved to be, Microsoft has no decided advantages.'

How does that help/ hinder Nokia -- unless you're assuming MSFT will bail out Nokia's balance sheet?

' this time around Microsoft isn't really bringing any evident innovation. '

Not to the iControlFreak mindset perhaps:)
But, judging by the much greater acceptance of Android's more laissez faire mindset, Lumia 920/W8 is offering significant personalization benefits, for starters. Plus innovations like NFC out of the box, best in class navigation (including offline, which is a major benefit in avoiding highway robbery by telecoms) compared to the laughing stock that is iMaps.

Nokia's been around in the business long enough to know what it takes to compete in the world's fastest growing mobile markets - the so-called Rest of the World outside the iBubble. Which is where it perfectly complements Softy's ignorance of the subject!
