They would sell 25 million if the top Elop would agree to put android on the Lumia. But the top Elop is a MS buddy, he'll never act against them.
Anyway, it's a bad new for Redmond, they can't buy Nokia for ONE $.
Win 8 is better than the previous versions
I think it needs little more time to get more tweaks and its going to be there.
iOS also started small and lacking lots of features, and as we see now it reached high levels. for windows I'm expecting the same and better.
overall its a good start for the new Win 8
It's not a good restart, it's more like a fake start. So much money spent on advertisement and development, but still on the wrong way. Windows Marketplace sux big time compared to the alternatives. Windows is so lightweight that my LG Jil Sander manages it excellent with the ancient 1ghz and adreno 200, so I seriously wonder why you have to spent a fortune on a beast like 920, you have nothing to handle - same ugly low-res games and pathetic apps!?!
Nokia is just manipulating the whole thing to sell it's downfalling brand to the big players, that's it!
Dxx, 10 Jan 2013Hey buddy, dont buy Nokia 820, buy 920 because there is a bug in MS in storage. In the Phone S... more@ Dxx
Hey, you're right. I never noticed that. I have "Others" folders on my internal storage and also on the external SD card and they are both getting larger. Any idea what "Others" is.
Thanks for pointing that out. That is BAD! Another MS blunder to add to the list.
droopy, 10 Jan 2013Ask Nokia to show sales numbers. Nokia was recently posting many fake information. Do you reme... moreYeah, we did ask Nokia and Nokia has said 4.4 million and it says it is true. So what will you say? You must be prove and sue Nokia for fake information. Please tell me to which court you would file the case? It is not Nokia to prove that it sold 4.4 million. It is you.. who have to prove it is 2.2 million :P
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2013Seriously you dont have a life...back when andriod was coming up not much phones were sold....... moreHey buddy, dont buy Nokia 820, buy 920 because there is a bug in MS in storage. In the Phone Storage, under "Others", others capacity grows alot and eats your memory and you cant control it. I have lumia 920 and its already 3.5GB, some users with HTC and Nokia 820 are suffering so no more space available. MS is aware of it and a fix will be soon.
sweet.jammy, 10 Jan 2013When Steve Ballmer, said they had five times the sales of Windows Phones in Christmas,2012 com... moreThe last few quarters, WP7x sales mostly (over 90%) existed out of Nokia sales. There is little reason to belief it is much different with WP8 and Q4. There are only 2 'compelling' WP8 phones out there not made by Nokia, 1 of Samsung and one of HTC. Neither made big number announcements. Chances are, or better, likeliness is, they both are well below 1 million total.
That WP8 only was launched end of October, doesn't really matter either. There should be a massive sales rush at the very beginning, one you won't see anymore in any of the following quarters. Even with that, Nokia barely managed to outdo it's Q2 WP sales. Have also in mind this Q4 sales is including some WP7.X sales, as those likely still were sold in, be it small, some numbers. Generally, the start of WP8 is better than Nokia's start of WP7.X, but when you'd consider it a similar change as Android 2.x to 4.x, it's just not good. It's not a 'whole new startup', it's the continuation of Microsofts failure to make a clear and stable mobile platform.
great news for Nokia and Nokia's fans ... after I saw nokia lumia 920 i felt that nokia is back on the right way..and I cant wait to see what nokia is hiding for us in 2013 im sure they have many new outstanding devices like the lumia 920 and the nokia 808 back in 2012..go nokia go we are right behind u.. :)
Im hoping for a 5inch 1080p or something which we dont except ,im sure nokia loves to surprise their fanssssss :D
droopy, 10 Jan 2013Ask Nokia to show sales numbers. Nokia was recently posting many fake information. Do you reme... moreyeah it was nokia's mistake.but nokia never mentioned it was shot with the 920,instead they used 'pureview camera'.and its not fake,hold a 920 in ur hand,and take a shot.it performs really ahead of even recent 13 mp andy shits.
WP is good OS, and it's better alternative to ios and Android. If you ask the users most of them are satisfied with their handset, and they all love it's fluidity, there is no lag in it, because Microsoft developed WP from ground up again, they didn't just modified Windows mobile and launched it in the market.... This yr. with more improvements and more new features introduced, WP will surely give tough fight to other Mobile OS. Android is feature packed but then they have their own problem of Lag, which can't be remedied just by increasing the screen FPS, they have to rewrite the code from ground up if they want to remove the lag completely, as java and dalvik will continue to hog the user experience on android, they can reduce the lag, by increasing the Screen FPS more, or introducing quadcore or octocore processor based devices, or device with 3GB or 4GB RAM, but they cannot remove lag completely, and maybe in future with launch of Ubuntu mobile Os, the lovers of open source will flock to it, because it will be better option for all the geeks than Android...........
Its good to hear something positive form NOKIA. However, that info relates to 2012. this year even more will be required from NOKIA to weather the heated smartphone storm.
Sony start the year off with a bang with its Xperia Z, a very sleek & simple but with useable innovations.
5" screen with 1080p doesn't necessarily make a smartphone rated as best, though its the new trend. Since the use of smartphone has tripled, therefore, innovations must be useable, extended battery life is a MUST, weight is arguable but in comparison to the Lumia 920 is a bit heavy (150g is a good weight).
There's ALOT of work for NOKIA to do from 2yrs ago to actually regain their fans and acquire users from IOS and ANDROID.
I am a long time NOKIA user from 252,6120,8310,N80, N95 and N900. Unfortunately, i am currently using a S2 but since hoping for a game changer from NOKIA.
Although there are many WP haters, there are even more NOKIA lovers eagerly waiting for the game changer from NOKIA.
Ask Nokia to show sales numbers. Nokia was recently posting many fake information. Do you remember FAKE camera video? Nokia make sales internally to their subsidiaries worldwide to increase the number and to carriers. So, real sales is 2.2 Lumias. ASK Nokia to show the information, you will see.
Iskander, 10 Jan 2013So there we have it. WP8's '5 times as many Christmas sales compared to 2011's Christmas sales... moreWhen Steve Ballmer, said they had five times the sales of Windows Phones in Christmas,2012 compared to 2011 holidays sale, the he meant all WP devices, not just Nokia's phone....... Any ways if the sales have exceeded the nokia's expectation, then it means that 4.4million lumia sales are not bad, because it's still transition period for Nokia, a work in progress. If you compare the sale of figures with Smasungs figures now, then it will look less, but compare the sales figure of samsung when they were 1year into Android, then you will get the whole piture of where the WP ecosystem is going.......atleast for time being figure are good and as expected, no body guessed it to cross 10-20 million in this quarter, because WP8 was launched at the end of October, and it was available only in some markets........ This year let the WP ecosystem grow more, then we will talk about numbers, again this time of next yr., okay Buddy..........
droopy, 10 Jan 2013Ask Nokia to show sales structure, not just the number. You will see real 2.2 sales, and fake ... moreSeriously you dont have a life...back when andriod was coming up not much phones were sold....nokia made some mistakes in past but now are heading the right directions...shedding extra weight and going in the right path ...we do need competition better for consumers let people decide what they want ...i am planning to buy a nokia 820 love the design and love the features overall ....and life is not all in black and white
They could have selled much more, but they didn´t expect the new Lumia phones to be so much more popular than last year lumias, so they ran out of components. Bad thing for them they lost hundreds of millions because they weren´t prepared well enough.
I fell in love with lumia a year ago. Its a beautiful fast handset . It appears everywhere since i got mine. The vampire diaries are now boasting the lumia. British dramas also. . Also hart of dixie. . Revenge with windows htc. There world is going lumia crazzzy. Its fantastic to see Nokia doing well. Such a high standard. Well done
its good restart for nokia. well done dude..pls fight and come back again.. 4.4 m is small as compared to the android and ios but here story is tottaly diferent because the sells of wp 7 ,7.5, 7.8 is low due to anouncement of wp8 and that those divices cantbe upgraded to wp8. look how many compnies have models of wp..very few and look at android models a large no of models present in their portfolio..only nokia is fighting with those compnies with lumia armor. wp8 is not fully matured yet but definetly have potential to break 4.4 m mark.
