Yes, that is more or less what I meant by “HERE is a SW and services company and if governed with the approach of a Hardware maker the consequences will be disastrous.”

I don’t think it’s really about whether they venture outside of their core competency or not, as long as the acquired company is governed properly the things can end up well. See for instance when Google acquired Android (I doubt one of their core competencies was in building a mobile OS).

All things aside I believe HERE has anyway better chances to survive and succeed in this consortium that inside the relics of the old Nokia.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
