Expect a bunch of new Nokia WP7 phones, Ballmer says, new chassis - read the full textAfter the announcement of the eagerly awaited Samsung Galaxy Nexus running the latest Android 4.0, it's now time to turn our heads to the next main event, which is exactly a week away from now.

If you go that path i believe you really will bury Nokia. Having used WM 6.1 ... Iphone ... and now Android must say that by far it is the best user experience. There is no need to be a computer expert just a demanding user. Microsoft is at least two years behind ... hurry up or the train will be gone before you arrive. Cheers from Portugal.

I personally like the design of the Nokia 800, which I believe is quite iconic.

When your competitor talks about you then it is clear they are worried. I am not an Andriod fan for different reasons, but certainly they are cool devices. I played with some of them. No science needed. I am an Apple fan boy, and I get cold shivers whenever I think of the word Windows Mobile and or Window whatever from Microsoft. Now for Windows OS and Mobile, you need rocket science, and by the time you figure things out its time to change the device. Android I can safely say, I picked it up and just used it, just like I did Apple. Android is cool, but the only thing that is against it, well the number of brands using it, and the choice you have. Becomes boring to see every one of them with the same thing. Like Window OS, thousands of computers , kinda look alike kinda of thing. Boring. Sorry Windows fans.

No platform is 100% secure of course, but Android suffers from security issues due to the very open nature that it pushes.

If one needs to be a computer scientist to use Android, then I REALLY LOVE BEING A COMPUTER SCIENTIST, Mr Ballmer, cos I LOVE USING ANDROID PHONES; and sadly, I am not gonna stop anytime soon and start using those Windows phones...because, sadly (once again), they are not yet up to the user experience of even Android 1.6 yet; Not to talk of the Ice Cream Sandwich! I am salivating!!!

Exactly one year from now it will take for us to realize whether Android or WP7 is the winner in Mobile OS market then only I will invest in an expensive handset.

Still using the old Nokia 5800 8-))

Google does not test those apps uploaded and they just remove those malicious apps after the damage has been done. It's not on some Chinese market or dubious website where you sideload the app, it's on the official Android Market.

Anyone with malicious intent can upload a booby trapped app on the Android Market and victimize any person who downloaded the app.
Notice the dates of the articles I linked? Google keeps on silently removing malwares on the Market on various dates and they are fighting a losing battle against these malwares. They are not doing proactive measures but they are doing reactive measures against the malwares.

it takes a retard to state what steve baller said about androis phones... im no android fans (ios for me) but it is much more intuitive and user friendly than windows phone... its hard to figure out the logic behind not just the windows phone user interface but also desktop windows in general as well...

Nokia has been milking millions of money from other companies on patents alone for many years and still the most sold mobile brand in the world.

Nokia has 1% of the just released Iphone 4s (4M units as reported)

check your stats...USA is not the WORLD market.

Please buy your 800$ Galaxy Nexus before they run out of stock in stores.

But my friend, you cannot blame Google for the malwares, viruses, spywares or whatever it is...blame the creator of the malwares, viruses, spywares and all the bad things in the net. That is why i think there should be an international rule to prosecute anyone that create virus, or spyware or malware into the internet.
