Nokia sells its HQ in Finland, to stay there on a lease - read the full textNokia's financials aren't what you'd call great lately, and as a result the company is selling its headquarters building in Espoo, Finland for 170 million. The deal is expected to be finalized by the end of the year, but the company has no plans to move out afterwards. Instead it will lease...

It's funny how Nokia is going down and fanboys still talking about past. A company cannot rely on past glories and should pick the lesson from Kodak. It don't matter how good a company was in the past it has to take some of that market share now or it's going to fade. Investors are going to start running away because selling HQ are clear signs of trouble and investors really don't care about your history, they want money NOW!

Then nokia charged hefty sum,whereas samsung were struggling with their omnia ,pixon etc. Thats how the market works. Even today people are ready to empty their pockets for a nokia android phone. So its the case of standing properly first and then think of fighting. Nokia is the mozart of smartphne and theres no denying. Camera,multitasking,Apps,gsm calling and many more features were popularised by nokia. And no i do nt live in past. Thats why i said ,now that L920 has seen good success,we shoúld expect them to bring a lot more on table next year.

> In reply to [deleted post]LOL okay then clearly state what you want to say then? Again, you likened Nokia to Mozart which I would assume is that you're referring to Nokia as a company who makes beautiful compositions. You then Likened Samsung and Apple to Justin Bieber and Nikki Minaj, referring to their sales figures, next you referred to Samsung and Apple as Kia and Hyundais which I would assume you are comparing them to cheap affordable decently made products. I gave you a rebuttal in which Samsung and Apple are able to sell more expensive products than Nokia, so if anything was the cheaper brand it would be Nokia here.

So what point are you trying to get across? You seem to be at a loss, can you give me any data that shows that Nokia sells more volume per product than Apple or Samsung? I even gave you factual statements such as Samsung makes most of their mobile profits from the Galaxy S series, meaning Galaxy S II, III, Note, Note II. Yet Nokia barely makes anything selling their smartphones, face it, you're here looking at smartphones. I doubt you're here reading the latest news on the ASHA lines from Nokia. Your dribble about Nokia selling more phones altogether than Apple is ridiculous at best.

> In reply to James Hunt @ 2012-12-06 14:33 from 7tx6 - click to readAs i've already mentioned, the device is well built. I prefer the weight of the Lumia 920 over that of my Galaxy S 3. The downside is that the OS is so horrible it makes the device not as good as it could be. I find that when i'm using the Lumia 920 I have to constantly type in portrait mode instead of landscape as the keyboard does not use the entire landscape space. This makes it awkward to use. The OS lags, I've had freezing issues which are not related to Gmail sync. Emails do not sync(when I delete them on my Galaxy S3 they are deleted on my inbox) even hotmail does not delete. I bank with more than one bank whether it's through checking, savings, or credit cards. Not all banks have apps in the marketplace. The facebook app that microsoft released is horrendous, sucks compared to the Android version.

The message wasn't meant to be rude, but I just think your fanboyism has gotten the best of you. You refuse to believe anything factual, you even refuse to believe that just because I don't like Nokia means I don't own a Nokia device. I've had plenty of Nokia devices, N80, N92, N95, I even owned the N800 MID. Nokia is in a downward spiral because they're not able to compete. Apple gets crap for basically releasing the same design, Iphone 4, 4s, Iphone 5 and soon 5S, but that's exactly what Nokia is doing no? N9, Lumia 800, 900, 920, and to some extent the 820. Also what I found is that even though the rear camera is good for night time and decent for daytime images, the front facing camera is crap, especially when compared to my S3.

Also for Samsung the BULK of their profit and sales are from the Galaxy S series, this is stated in their FINANCIAL FILINGS. Nokia refusal to state how much income they received from the Lumia series is a sure sign of weak sales. Again, you relate Apple and Samsung to Hyundais and Kias yet in the world of smartphone, Nokia isn't considered "luxury" brand anymore. In fact they sold their vertu lines.

"Nokia has one design" - this says it all about you...I've just waisted 3 seconds of my life...
