nokia showing its greatness. nokia could take android and lose its identity it seas of same mobile phones. but they want to be different, not to lose their recognisable name.
bOa_cOnstrictOr, 14 Feb 2011im a loyal fan of nokia...in this tough times...just wait and see what their actions and what ... moredid love nokia... but after thir move, its now samsung (android).
The future is Samsung and android (nokia and symbian are dead!)
Elop is getting strange ideas, first of all using a bought OS like WP7 as well as doing some development on Symbian won't reduce Nokia's operating cost.
And the idea of standing out and not looking the same as other phone makers, WP7 insists that all phones have the same UI appearance and almost the same hardware due to the high requirements, so how exactly is Nokia standing out with WP7 ? Using MeeGo would have been a much better idea seeing as Nokia thinks Android will have problems in the future.
And most importantly i seriously don't think Nokia has the time for making a transition, sure it has a lot of brand loyalty and market share, but these will take a huge bump if immediate actions are not taken.
Personally I think Nokia was better of applying some Android ideas to its Symbian^3 & delivering regular, and significant, updates as Nokia promised to do so in the first place.
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2011Oh yeah? Nokia may not even have a WP7 unit out this year while Android is growing at a tremen... moreI totally agree with you man! Nokia is going down now, and Android is the FUTURE, NOT WP7, or Meego! Android is the fastest growing OS! All the biggest mobile phone manufacturers chose Android, and Nokia chose WP7! :P
Who is helping whome here ? Who's gonna bail out whome.
I mean both nokia and windows os are struggling at the moment.
What arr we gonna get by combing these two? Is it harbinger for the another disaster in waiting? Only time will tell.
Actually I will never ever think that Nokia killed itself but Microsoft did. Nobody knows how much Elop got money from Microsoft for the stupid idea to stop all in-house software development in Nokia for the sake of plausible Windows future.
Think, Nokia just sold its core strengths and soul, ups, no, Nokia just KILLED those for fun, for the mad idea to start making Windows mobiles sometime in the future.
THIS IS JUST NOT NOKIA-KIND-OF-BUSINESS!!, everybody knows it. Nokia's management got such big money or promises of that from Microsoft that nothing else matters. I dont get millions for making clever choices, but still my idea would have been better: Try out Windows first, with one phone model, then increase investment in that platform, and NOT just kill Symbian and Meego!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2011for Your kInd information ,,, nokia java phone is so successful ,,, and how about windows 7 ph... moreOh yeah? Nokia may not even have a WP7 unit out this year while Android is growing at a tremendous speed. You think Nokia's competition will just be sitting around waiting? Think again! How can it be successful when it currently don't have anything not even a working prototype to show off? If you want cutting edge, right now, then there's only ONE choice... it's Android.
Nokia is now a puppet of Microsoft. It's not the Nokia that it used to be. You have to thank Trojan Elop for that.
im a loyal fan of nokia...in this tough times...just wait and see what their actions and what will be the outcome...is it becoming better or worst...only time will tell...i love you nokia! All the best!!!
You guys act as if you are the smartest in the world and know everything. None of you know what's going inside Nokia, but you still keep blaming the CEO. I own IP4 and now planning to have both apple and nokia products.
No one forced you guys to buy Nokia WP 7 smart phones, there's a lot of customers like me who's gonna buy these products. So if you don't want just don't buy it, stop posting bullshits and shut your mouths.
You know what, the guys who hated Apple IP4 these days were not Nokia lovers, they hated American products, so supported nokia and hated IP4. The fault of the CEO is that he once was a Microsoft employee.
If you are true Nokia lovers, keep supporting it, wait till the release of WP7 smartphones. Cheers Nokia!

David, 14 Feb 2011Since when does Nokia announce new devices at MWC?? Nokia always announce new handset at their... more"Jo Harlow, Nokia's new Executive VP of Smart Devices, stepped on stage and made a few interesting points. First and most importantly, she laid the schedule for the first Nokia phone running Windows Phone 7. "My boss has told me he would be much happier if that time was in 2011", she hinted."
They're not even sure that they will have a WP7 device this year. Android is not going to stop selling and wait for them. Trojan's first priority is to beat Android? Good luck with that.
nokia at its competition just upgrade hardware features like on Displays, Processors, memories and etc....just like what apple did in their Iphone....make your display more crisp (higher resolutions), faster processors and bigger memories..
Since when does Nokia announce new devices at MWC?? Nokia always announce new handset at their own Nokia World event around spring.
i think nokia loss lot his market ratio last year may be these year they are dreaming for doing some change still they do know how to make dual sim phone....
