about this episode

LAUNCH Ticker News Flash brought to you by Bing! Microsoft will get great handsets for its $7 billion purchase of Nokia. Now what it needs are the great apps, and ecosystems to draw users to Windows Phone and Microsoft’s mobile space. With $68 million in total cash, and a $264 market cap, Jason Calacanis suggests that Microsoft take a page from Marissa Mayer’s book. Buy tons of apps, develop them in Android and iOS, and start rolling out features on Windows first. Use those great teams (and all that cash) to build the business.

Read Jason’s full editorial at the LAUNCH blog or follow his posts on LinkedIn to find out which apps he thinks Microsoft should buy.
