Nokia has made it's life mistake by shutting down meego ...this os had a big future it could be a great challenger to iOS and android..look at n9 sales more than all wp phones ...with Elop's strategy nokia will die
Nokia's lumias sale can be better :-) if windows phone 7.5 support all languages :-) like apple iphone and android devices :-) . Still nokia not release in all asia countrys :-( that's way sales not high like apple iphone and samsung android .
olaf, 08 Jun 2012Without android, Nokia is doomed....bad choices made by the boardKeep dreaming :-) nokia will never use android ! what happened to HTC etc.... Why the all are doomed even with android ! Only samsung successfully with android because with cheape price :-( . Go check samsung galaxy s2 prices .
007 cambodian, 08 Jun 2012Nokia will not go for android as it want to keep its ovi store . If it chooses android meaning... moreYou will find that this is an ivalid point. Samsung have their own app store running alongside the playstore. Why cant nokia run ovi aswell as androids play store. HTC does the same. Again, dont coment unless you really do know the product or the market or any other really relevant information. thank you and much love.
the lumnia series only sold 2.2 million?well the samsung galaxy S series sold over 39 million plus and the gs3 almost have over 10 million preorders admit it fanboys nokia have a bad marketing strategy...and people wants android not WP but i would prefer windows than any other OS when it comes to computers or laptops
it's more dramatic for Nokia to come from behind.
WP is the future and I'm pretty sure that Android will be copying from this OS one way or another.
Laura, 08 Jun 2012I'm using Samsung Galaxy SII because I like Android, but any devices compared to Nokia is like... moreNokia will not go for android as it want to keep its ovi store . If it chooses android meaning it abadans ovi and choose play store instead . Other hand nokia has made a long contract with Microsoft so go for android is impossible

Anupam Chopra, 08 Jun 2012The Board and Elop did a big mistake by solely choosing WP.
1)They must rectify it, even if ... more+1
Reason that Stephen elop gave for not using android? Because they want to differentiate their products!
Now go and compare equivalent models in omnia and lumia. Mostly identical hardware wise. And the software? If the phones were unbranded, itd be hard to tell them apart.
Compare two android manufacturers like htc and Samsung. They look and feel different?
What was elop thinking? He could have easily customized android in any way he wanted to make sure Nokia androids stand out..
I sincerely do believe that WP7 is a more direct iOS competitor in the fact that it is very user friendly, simple, and smooth but restructive. But Nokia needs android to cater to their symbian core.
I was a symbian user for years before I switched to android last year, and WP7 isn't enticing me to come back to Nokia, even though Nokia still is my favorite, and highest rated phone brand.
Not intrest number im sure if nokia use android sale more may be back on top
The Board and Elop did a big mistake by solely choosing WP.
1)They must rectify it, even if it means launching a single Android phone in a year, THE MUST DO SO.
2)Make Meego open source and put some money in developer community and encourage them to work on it; along with rerouting the money going to Accenture for Symbian and ask them to support Meego.
Isn't IDC the same firm that predicted a significant wp market presence by 2015? It appears that they either have a stake in wp7 or are being paid by someone. ;-)
TheMan, 08 Jun 2012Seriously best hardware! best camera!
As i recall SII won best cameraphone not Nokia
http://... moreBest hardware in terms of the actual the phone build. And I know a SII its my fav phone, however I think the camera on something like the N8 would be better and that's what 2 years old. The reason SII is such a good phone is that touchwiz is very optimised for the hardware because Samsung make it and that 1 great strength. But you can also find cheaper Nokia phones that were really good on bella os. Bella is very similar to android as they both work on Java so I think then could have developed something really good.
Lastly a lot of Nokia fan requested it, and Nokia got upset and said android sucks and it would never use it, so clearly there is a demand for it.
The faster WP, that vomit of an OS, dies the better. Going with that crap called WP was the corporate mistake of a decade or even century. Now we know that all those Lumia WP7 phones cannot even be updated to WP8. How idiotic is that. M$ has no place in mobile and I hope they never get a foot hold or even worse yet another monopoly.
MeeGo is million times better OS and more liked. Symbian is the most feature rich, light weight and advanced smartphone OS in the world. And now with Belle even its UI is good, on par with Android. Nokia has two great OS's of their own. And what does the imbecile in charge Elop do, he kills them both. What an idiot. As a result Nokia has lost 3/4 of its value in just 16 months. 75% lost in just over a year! Worst CEO ever!
Fükk you Elop! Go back to Micro$oft to suck Ballmer's tiny flaccid c0ck. You killed the best mobile company in the world. I hope you pay for it some day. But even if you suffered immensely for your crimes, that wouldn't bring Nokia back. The greatness of Nokia is, I'm afraid, forever lost.
yotavzki, 08 Jun 2012i use android coz for now its the only choice in the market i will get a big screen and can do... moreIm not sure if you know this but windows already got killed of once by iOS, with wndows 6 and 6.5 leaving a bad taste in almost all it users. Now it is android vs iOS, looking at market share android is winning.
Android has 3 big problem imo, first was the lack of hardware accelration which is finally fixed with ICS, now if you look at single core phones with ICS e.g. HTC one V it run really smooth, running hardware similar to most of the current gen wp7.5 phones.
The 2nd issues is fragmentation, this is also affect every other platform but the extent if affects android is crazy, with 1000 different res phones and hardware and such. It seems that google is planning to reduce this with finally putting in some rules for development and now with the stardand size for phones bgeing 720p however it is still a big issues.
Finally issues is with updates >.>, this is a huge issues for anyone who actual cares. to the average joe I dont think its as big of a issues.
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2012Grats nokia, but I really think if they had picked up Android instead of saying it sucks they ... moreSeriously best hardware! best camera!
As i recall SII won best cameraphone not Nokia
And Hardware! Nokia don't even make their own phones how can you say they make best hardware? Only they do is import from Foxccon and Compal and print on them Nokia
And Nokia can't go to Android because people will neglect them since their hardware are outdated plus there are plenty of Android devices with way better and advanced hardware, so that they preferred to stick with WP/MeeGo/Symbian to have something special.
Samsung,better then Nokia (Lumia)!.
SGS3 (1.) & SGS2 (2.)!.
