Nokia Should Acquire Yahoo!
Stephen Wellman at InformationWeek offers five reasons, which I paraphrase:
- Nokia wants to be a Web company and Yahoo already is
- Updating Yahoo! mobile offerings could make Nokia king of mobile location services
- Yahoo could help Nokia brand in the U.S.
- Yahoo would give it a desktop ad biz (it already has a mobile one)
- Nokia can’t let Google or Microsoft gain any Internet marketshare if it wants to be a serious player
