Right decision. At the end it is nokia's own mistake. M.s almost rules the company and they are using a Nokia maps infrastructure (and marketing strategy blabla) and they did not give a penny. They just install a Trojan in to the Nokia :)))

MS is giving Nokia more than a billion per year.

Of course a government shouldn't bail out a company, unless it's a big bank with overpaid, greedy, ruthless bankers that need money to maintain their life styles.
But seriously, this is not the Finnish government's responsbility. Also, Nokia didn't ask for this, which is important to point out.

Ok don't buy the stocks but sure they can help in many ways. They can provide low interest loan, increase some subsidy etc after all once Nokia puts Finland on many people maps.

Nokia = Finland's flagship.
The Finnish government should support Nokia like what the US government did with General Motors.

Hmm, what the hell? No good news for Nokia, is this company imploding on itself? Soon it will be selling off it's assets. Then the vultures will start circling the carcass, how in the hell did the worlds largest phone maker lose it's way in such a short time? This is like some celebrity who hits the substance and lose it all in 5 years. Poor Nokia.
