> In reply to [deleted post]lollll...Check out the WP8 HD games too. By the way, your argument is still childish. Which games utilize Quad core now? Please enlighten us! Oh you belong to a pack, which had a dual core, When ginger bread used 1 core and now a quad core, when still most of the games use single core and dual core ?! Jack the ripper... i would rather call your arguments a cropper !

Go to the Source link, Look at the "Forward-Looking Statements" below the report.
The disclaimer is quite flustered "It should be noted that certain statements herein that are not historical facts are forward-looking stateme....."

It's like the Shrek movie where Prince Charming ask Pinocchio.

Following is the movie quote:
Prince Charming:- You. You can’t lie, so tell me puppet, where is Shrek?

Pinocchio:- Uh, hmm, well, uh, I don’t know where he’s not.

Prince Charming:- Your telling me, you don’t know where Shrek is?

Pinocchio:- It wouldn’t be inaccurate to assume that I couldn’t exactly not say that it is or isn’t almost partially incorrect.

Prince Charming:- So you do know where he is?

Pinocchio:- On the contrary. I’m possibly more or less not definitely rejecting the idea that in no way with any amount of uncertainty that I undeniably (Prince Charming tells him “Stop it”) do or do not know where he shouldn’t probably be, if that indeed wasn’t where he isn’t. Even if he wasn’t at where I knew he was (I was unable to distinguish the rest of that sentence, due to the pigs and the Gingerbread man singing).

As for people who say WP8 does not do multitasking is terribly wrong!

WP8 multi-tasking can be seen with audio playback .. location .. and the awesome task switcher etc. because windows 8 is smart.. they filter what make sense to have multi-tasking.. wats not.

But android is lazy .. everything is multitasking .. drain all ram and battery ... services everywhere .. tweaking day and nite non stop..worse of all .. we cant control it.. other then uninstall!

> In reply to [deleted post]Yes u can deny all you want.. saying cpu/gpu is needed for hd games.. video recording .. etc etc.

But the fact still remains! Android lags on dual core worse then any OS!! .. King of lag.. must rely on quad core octa core to work properly!

(note that Nokia is counting its Asha full touch phones as smarthpones)
They are fooling themselves.
Asha doesn't have OS! how its a smartphone?
Nokia should be called the faker they are known in manipulating and faking to their own fans, people still didn't forget about their fake samples and now they reported fake reports. Well done Nokia.

Nokia, please build more Symbians to your low end phones. rather than stupid Ashas, Symbian is also can be considered as a feature phone nowadays, because it's not so smart compared to smartphone nowadays.
You still have the Symbian Belle sourcecode right, nokia? You better to port it to low end phones, rather than developing a new bad OS in asha.
And also, one of the biggest and very big drawback of Asha is no brightness control. The screen is too bright, even for a young person like me.

2. Fake fake fake ads so what? When lumia 920 was released many people try to recapture same ads like that one faked by nokia but the result was good as that ads ios is awesome.

3. Then u said nokia they fake report? Do you remember that post about nokia factories? Nokia can produce only 2 millions lumia per month in all of its factories and windows phone 8 nokia start to sell november while wp7.5 start since october, do simple calculation u will see those number are true and thats why there is no stock of lumia many of them are sold out.

They are retaining users from the old n8/n9 + candybar phones who trusted in their brand.

I do not think people give much thought about the WP8 system.. But they are happy given WP8 looks better and faster then the n8/9 interface.

Great news for nokia, hope they release a L820 type with bigger battery with the sd slot and fm radio.
