China is big market no doubt. Even manufactures like motorola and samsung released their top of the line phone only for china. Samsung galaxy s2 and motorola xt928 both are still holding the best specs for dual sim card android up till today and exclusively only for china. People over there are willing to pay and don't bitch about overpriced

Since Google release their Android the Nokia with its Symbian went down and slowly but surely Samsung with Android go to the top. It's not easy for Nokia to take this crown back. Windows phone OS couldn't help the corporation to compete with Android based smartphone.

Yes I'm agree that there are thousands of corp producing droidphone out there and surely make market crowded. But don't forget that Nokia has its own advantage: Carl zeiss optic and great name as phone legend for many years.

The world population is 6billion and China already has 1/4 of the people. That's why ZTE, Meizu, Huawei and other do give a damn about the non-asian folks out there

And Android are losing its exclusivity due to crappy cheap phones such as galaxy Y. Some people want to have exclusive phone, with not too many fellow owner

I'd like to see Nokia release Android-based superphone empowered by a quadcore processor, Adreno 320 GPU, 32/64 GB internal storage, 2 gig of RAM, 4.7 inch or slightly larger of HD display and powered by 3.000 mAh of battery (removable). Man, If Nokia surely release such a phone then I'm pretty sure that they would compete with Samsung in smartphone market. Let's see what'll happened.

They don't need to get out of China to be "big".
