2-touchable screen. = Nokia 808 has it
3-dropable phone. ? = Nokia 808 has it
4-rechargable battery. ? = Nokia 808 has it
5-8 mp camera. = Nokia 808 has it and your camera sensor has only 8MP, N808 has 41MP 1/1.2, far cry from your puny 8MP and Carl Zeiss lens compared to your GENERIC LENS
6-led flash. = Nokia 808 has it, and not only that, N808 has XENON FLASH
7-super amoled display. = Nokia 808 has Clear Black Display from SAMSUNG, yes, from SAMSUNG
8-qhd resolution. = Nokia 808 has nHD resolution
9-openable app drawer. = Nokia 808 has it

10-usb and all the connectivities[i cant write all of them separately]

= NOW this is where everything gets very interesting. Nokia 808 has 1.) mini HDMI to HDMI, yours doesn't; 2.) FM Transmitter, yours doesn't (Transmitter means you can broadcast to unused FM Radio channel); 3.) 3.5 inch mini stereo out with Audio and Video out (Can be connected to RCA input of any TV or screen); 4.) FOREVER FREE OFFLINE GPS (no need to connect to 3G/4G/Internet, did I mention FREE?); 5.) OFFLINE Search, Voice Command, Voice Recognition; 6.) Dolby HD; 7.) Stereo HD recording up to 140 dB; 8.) Microsoft Office Mobile... and the list goes on and on...

So it turns out that YOU and YOUR device has some serious jelly issues, huh. U MAD BRO? Jelly much?

Your "smartphone" goes "dumbphone" without internet connection.

Why does everyone sue in Germany? Motorola sued Microsoft in Germany. Apple and Germany. Nokia and Germany. Why not France or the UK or even Belgium?

Unable to deal with the competition,Nokia decided to use the "noob" method and even sue a not so well known company "ViewSonic".Nokia seriously like to look for trouble,viewsonic is a good company that produces great tablets for work and nokia have to screw them over.THANKS ALOT SUCKIA.

First quarter financial results see HTC revenue drop 35%, Samsung profits double
even with revenue drops htc manage to have profits they never post a loss

from viva la vida's link

Full financial details can be downloaded here, and it is not good news for HTC. The company ended last year on a low too with end year results for "
"profits" dropping 25% and sales 20.3%.

as long you heard the word "profit" drop" it is still gain/profit a not a loss please guys study the whole article. its different fom motorola thats a real loss and nokia.

another posted by viva la vida

More concerning is the decline in the firm's profit margins despite revenues only falling by around 35 percent, the company's net income after tax fell by 70 percent year-on-year. While this is (read)"better news than a loss", HTC will still hope to return to the booming profits of last year will the One series prove to be the success it needs?

Their biggest mistake was with htc desire flagship model where they sold tons of units and they left customers such as myslef with no updates. I'm pissed at htc and I'm never buying htc phone again period.
