i would buy a nokia any day, i just didn't get any lumia because i don't like microsoft.
Contract , 19 Jun 20157- 8 years is way too long.
2- 3 years us more like it as Nokia will be launching into Andro... more100% with your comment. Nokia went down a bit because Symbian was on its last legs but build quality.aerials,audio,cameras etc were top notch with Nokia. There are millions of Nokia fans still here right now ready to return,I am one of them. Always been a Nokia fan and hope they bring their quality back and some quirky traditional Nokia designs in this monotonous slab world.
My wish is Nokia E90 device running Android.
Mr. Objective, 19 Jun 2015The Giant will rise again. Maybe 7-8 years ago Nokia was big like Apple+Samsung+LG+Sony togeth... more7- 8 years is way too long.
2- 3 years us more like it as Nokia will be launching into Android already established
Nokia always fitted their phones with removable batteries and microSD expansion which now even Samsung traded in
Nokia essentially built phone specified by Microsoft, Windows is known for its computers now its phones.
Being Android this is internal switching so chasing specs.
Nokia despite the overcrowding Nokia will surprise, it phones will be mid high range and solid.
NOKIA will not lend its name to cheapness so those who worry need not
It will be a phone as I am sick of everybody making their own versions of iPhones.
ArtificiallyYours, 19 Jun 2015Nobody on this site understands persistence. As long as Samsung is a multi billionaire company... morethe innovation is slow with Android though atleast this year, Nokia was the king of innovation up until 2011 when the N8 came out.
If Nokia came back, HTC, Samsung, LG would be in awe of what to do.
Good for them, and I'm still normally using my N8, but sorry, I'm not buying an Android.
Nobody on this site understands persistence. As long as Samsung is a multi billionaire company, Microsoft is more than capable of criticizing their own (solid) budget phones, all these companies are persistent in their own right.
Nobody. Not Samsung, Apple, or Microsoft are going to stop selling phones. Besides, MS already stopped for four or something years after the KIN Debacle.
paulleern, 19 Jun 2015the death of samsung and iphone is imminent! hahahaSamsung could be destroyed by Nokia, Our're right, but not iPhone. Apple has loyal fans on the edge of madness:) But on the other hand I recpect Apple because the are different, they have unique OS and don't need nobody. Nokia was like that for almost 20 years..m
Microsoft must be feeling like Jon Snow on the finale of Game of Thrones now.."for the watch"..stab.."For the watch"..stab,stab.."for the watch"..stab..stab..stab,stab..and stab.
paulleern, 19 Jun 2015the death of samsung and iphone is imminent! hahahaNo. The latter however never was born, or maybe for a tiny bit of time, the former has a LONG long way to go. Mark my word on this. No real manufacturer could be going out from market this fast, its just not possible.
People don't have a brain nowadays I am sorry to say.
ithehappy, 19 Jun 2015Nokia became iconic because they manufactured the phones, not designed or put their names only... moreExactly. Also, would it kill Nokia to bring back Feature Phones to the United States? I know this makes me sound like a twenties-curmudgeon but whenever I take note of their engineering process I think of the 1600, or 3320.
I respect Apple and Nokia. Apple made revolution in mobile business and Nokia was always world No1 smartphone maker.
Samsung, LG, HTC etc are just cheap copycats
Nokia became iconic because they manufactured the phones, not designed or put their names only!
In any case, I suppose their financial condition isn't up to the mark to actually manufacture phones any more, so they will have to tie up with a bigger brand. But they need to make the phones! No one is going to buy a Foxconn made Nokia labelled phone, at least I won't. Then when they have achieved enough profits to be able to make phones again cancel that tie up/ contract. That's how every large player have succeeded in past years, and will continue to do so in future.
But the main thing which should always be there, Nokia quality.
News from 2018:
1.Nokia market share continues to grow, catching Apple fast.
2.Samsung lost 30% of its market share.
3.Microsoft leaves mobile business.
Mr. Objective, 19 Jun 2015I see that you use some cheap thick garbage phone and you are frustrated :)Except Nokia put substance in their phones when Gilette and Smartphones weren't fused together. I think you're missing the point, while IP certified phones get worse none of Nokias old phones needed some overhyped certification none of the consumers can get proof of.
I'm sick of designs that tie us to warranty insurance basically.
NOKIA could demolish Samsung in 2-3 years. Top spec hardware + camera and Android M inside....
Apple on the other hand is unique and has loyal customera, so it will hold on
Let's hope Nokia is coming back to be truly memorable, not to just cash in a few percentage points of profit on the goodwill associated with the name. I will be ecstatic if Nokia just releases a 2016 edition of the Nokia N8: boost the memory up to 2GB; double the pixel density but same size screen; keep the HDMI and USB host; add CAT6 LTE. I am so bored with big screen wafers that you cannot use one handed.
