sarari, 01 Apr 2013Nokia Lumia series is great , Main draw back is FM Radio. Radio fm will be added in the next update for all Nokia Lumia Windows phone 8 phones.

If nokia can make android phone on 928 and the price is cheaper than s3 surely samsung will have its nightmare. Nokia phones are much cheaper yet body design is very good. No doubt nokia has best camera today no one still beats their 41 mp camera. I will definitely buy one.

I handle over 100 phones for the company I work.
I have tested them all at one time or other and I can say at this point the W8 is my favorite of the phones available right now.

Jed, 13 Mar 2013If Nokia switches to Android they'll be under Samsung's shadow, ... moreYeah! I feel the same as well.

2011: the year Nokia admitted that Symbian lost the mobile OS war and looking for a OS for its new series of premium mobile phones before ditching MeeGo as well. Their choices:

-Android: if Nokia partnered with Google as a phone manufacturer, they would have closed down at the end of 2011 because Samsung will kick Nokia's butt hands down with the Galaxy series.

-Windows Phone: When Samsung, LG, HTC and ZTE don't care about WP7.x, Microsoft looked for and found a new partner: Nokia!

Only when Nokia partnered with Microsoft then the Windows Phone competition gets hotter: Take a look at Samsung, from building Omnia 7, W and M and the Focus series to releasing the Ativ S with higher 16 or 32 GB storage and MicroSD card slot and the Ativ Odyssey.

HTC: Following Samsung's initial hate for Windows Phone, HTC found out that Android was Samsung's champion OS and could not fare better, they tried out WP and whoa! They released a whopping number of eight devices with WP7.x and in last year (2012) became Microsoft's secondary flagship phone manufacturer alongside Nokia.

Think if Nokia went with android Google would let Nokia use the $8 billion dollar Here mapping suite with Android? I bet not and i bet Google is Nokia's competition. Then you have Apple suing for UI patents. Apple & MS have a cross license agreement.

WP8 has the best user experience.

But, on a desktop I did the Bing it on challenge. Google won 4 out of 5. So, Bing for my phone, Google for computer.

Ive been waiting for you lumia with stainless casing! i cant wait for this! i cant wait to replace my iphone 4s with this! windows OS is getting better and better with such a sleek GUI. Samsung just sucks with its design. plastic and unattractive form factor. nokia and apple is my two favorite phone company

P.S. Microsoft refused to pay me when I showed them what I was about to post:)

Sure every OS has bugs, no one said it didn't. Integration across all devices is going to be huge soon, and Droid/Google can't cut it. Think Chrome OS. Call me names all you want, I don't care. Try think long term and you'll see why MS is likely going to destroy Android. At least google search is better than Bing and the rest. There's still a future for Google as a website.

tomakali, 13 Mar 2013Windows Blue - heard of it? Windows Blue Project will converge ... moreExactly. Apple have the same capability to do the same. Which leaves Android. Chromebook is a spectacular fail, and droid itself it so badly written and unstable. I don't see Android existing in 5-10 years.

Nokia should give customers a free choice.... A Nokia 920/928 with Android or Sailfish would outsell the Windows variant. Nokia could compete directly with samsung, i would go for Nokia over Samsung any day, if nokia had Android or Sailfish/Harmattan (with Android apps)
