If Microsoft will sell own phone maybe Nokia may reconsider to finally sell Lauta mobile phone ( N8 big brother - with keyboard).

ms buying nokia, 02 Nov 2012i used wp aswell as win mobile so i think i know the situation. ... moreYou say windows phone is unusable for work.. but you're not providing any reasons as to why you say that.

Firstly i want you to remind yourself of how people once said that about apple, and bb's were the biggest work-related phones. Now apple is being used by business and workers all over the world. Windows will dominate because of its compatibility with windows computers, tablets, and accessories.

also, not to mention, that windows is hands down the MOST advanced operating system out to date for mobile devices. Windows has done a SIGNIFICANT job of providing users with the features they asked for compared to the last version.

The next version is giong to be even closer to satisfying users. within the next 2 updates, windows will be AHEAD of all other operating systems when it comes to features.

this is the windows 8 take over..
hail microsoft...

What Nokia should do is what Amazon have done with their Kindle Fire. Take the Android OS and heavily modify it so it becaomes almost like a new Nokia OS resembling Symbian. Plus all the benefits and compatability of Android. I use a Lumia 710. Too many restrictions.

  • HiT

Now I am starting to believe that Nokia's decline / demise is very well planned.

See... Symbian did not compete in rapidly changing market while I could, very well. Then Fin CEO departed. Elop eloped from Microsoft and joined Nokia (the first nonFin CEO). Maemo was great but dumped. Meego was great but dumped. Symbian was dumped. All bet made on Microsoft's WP8 dumping everything else. And now even having agreement with 4 OEMs, we get the news that MS is planning own handset.

Other 3 OEMs are building non-wp8 phones already. So who is the looser in the end.

I like Nokia too but think about it. The downfall is planned. Who planned it? A little attention

Use windows then talk. you'll realise who stupid android is compared to windows. Android is a joke compared to wat microsoft managed to do in 1.5 yrs.

they say, to be more than average you have to seperate yourself from the masses. Guess wat? android is now average... nothing extraordinary. And what do you think Nokia is trying to do? Be more than average.

Hail microsoft.

Andro, 02 Nov 2012The CEO and the Nokia board know what they are doing. -------- ... moreIt's no use explaining to someone who lacks vision, just like the rest of general public who suddenly pop their heads in a giant company's management and say "Nokia should get into the Android market" and then go back to being programmers and bank clerks and janitors.

Vision. It's what you haven't got.

I agree, nokia made big mistake to join microsoft. but still time is not gone nokia should join andriod.

Andro, 02 Nov 2012The CEO and the Nokia board know what they are doing. -------- ... moreyou're wrong, nokia's biggest mistake wasn't to join forces with microsoft, infact that was probably the best move they could have made. The first rule in business inorder to gaurenttee your success is to engage in a monopoly, NOT enter a market that has MORE competition. Nokia would have been getting raped worse right now cause they would be facing HTC, Samsung, Asus, Acer, LG, Sony, and Motorola.

Nokia would have been way lower now had they gone with android.
The worst decision nokia made was to drop BOTH meego and symbian. They should have kept the meego project running alongside microsoft.

Regardless, they are the only brave and true mobile company out there. Atleast they didn't take the pansy sissy way out and jump on the same boat with all the other OEMs for a free ride. i.e. just hardware design.

Hail nokia, hail microsoft, hail those who want to build thier success from the bottom to the top.
