Elop getting Financial compensation for his past duties as being a Companies CEO is nothing NEW it happens all the time when Companies change hands. There is too much BS about Mr
ELOP down weakening Nokia to make easy for Microsoft to buy it. People who know Elop know he wanted to be a CEO and by know means wanted to loose his position. Nokia was about to fold up before MR Elop Got there. Nokia and Blackberry although they were Powerhouse players did not have strong enough technology to keep up with the Apple iphone and Google Android smart phones. Mr Elop's and Nokia's Effort's did make nokia MS best OEM for selling Windows smart phones and new info points out that Nokia under his leadership was getting
Nokia smart phones capable of running the Android OS smart phones Nokia under Elop was getting ready to sell both Android and Windows smart phiones like Samsung and HTC and others do. Mr Elop was no Dummy under his leadership there would have been a few nokia Android smart phones. Elop is gone now and now there will be none so why don't you trolls shut up
