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...

i was da bigest fan of nokia until they wr producin symbian . Their build quality ,their bettery timing n over all in design . . The biggest ever mistake nokia made is to switchd toward windows (ugliest shitest o.s ever evn window 6.5 was better thn window 7 to 7.8 )
if they want to survive they have to undo their contract wid microsoft

But first, whats the price to pay for??(microsoft speaking), second: lumia 920 has amount of hype?? hmmm... N8 despite the black propaganda created, is still working and selling very well and after 2 years, has high popularity. However, many people says that WP sooner or later will dominate...lets see...but if they dont i hope Nokia has alternative plan. If they do i'm affraid (for the status of Nokia) the price to pay will be xpensive. In my opinion its It's a shame, really a shame because when you have in your hands potential and highly sophisticatd "cards" such as symbian, maemo, linux, meego, you are trying to steal, busting out hidden ACE from your sleeve, with doubtful results and creating resentment to one billion symbian users all over the world.

Heck i didnt even bother to comment on the apple map fiasco or other topics. Bcoz i am a nokia fan ,but that doesnt mean that i hate others. I want nokia to grow and beat the best. And i genuinely believe L920 has given it the start it needed badly.

Now that these buildings are not in the Nokia portfolio anymore, Microsoft will save 170 million euros when they will finally acquire Nokia. So the plan is going as expected.

Again, can you name any current Nokia devices that sells in the $499+ retail that outsells Iphone 5? Samsung Galaxy S III? You can not. You also like to keep boasting about how Nokia use to have these "glory" days when they were king of the smartphone industry. Well they had no competition back then aside from Palm and microsoft. You keep saying that Windows Phone 8 is a new OS and we need to let it mature. Didn't we let Windows Phone 7 mature to Windows Phone 7.5? I remember Nokia fanboys and Microsoft fanboys screaming with glee about how 7.5 brought so many "updates" to the OS that made it competitive to Android. Well 7.5 came and gone and Android still beating it. It's not a problem of having "low end" devices either. Nokia Lumia 510,610,710 were all low end devices but they sucked too.

They will always make fun of others. 2.5 million lumia 920 pre order in first two weeks.take that ! And still nt available in india and china.

Without US nokia had 40% market share throughout the world for a decade. And sales dont compare for different era. Now the smartphnes sale has increased. And iphne was able to overtake nokia only in 2011.
