The last negotiation between microsoft n RIM has no solution.On October 24, 2007, Microsoft announced that it had purchased a 1.6% share of Facebook for $240 million is good moves.

To window:There is onemore important things tonote abt.You may be the king in the past, but not in future. Stop giving incentives to hardware company to use your product like intel did to it may incurred u some cost.The main factor is to make the audience smile, then you will get support from everywhere. ASUS,ACER,SAMSUNG,etc.2ND dont make your own hardware: hardware company like samsung dont like it. it is like a challenge to them.bad indicator. you can imagine if intel is going to make laptops, who is going to support them. HOwever you can the hardware not under windows brand and hardware company may not know. this is a tips.

TO my windows friend: please clearely note in mind it is harder to win consumer heartin a social hubs like google search,tunein,youtube,whatapps etc than just an office or multimediA alone. when people get used to whatapps, they may refuse to change to CHAT ON(app by samsung which is similar towhatapp)as their friends are many and thet already get used to it.However,it is easier for android to just win your office n multimedia in just months.When android is going to focus on their multimedia n office and it turn out good, those big hardware will have a little support on you as it means big loss to them.You got to work on itfast or android will take you over.Solution windows can have a synergy with yahoo and RIM as they are falling in market too.RIM with their blackberry messenger(BBM) has a big market in my country.altough, their hardware and platforms is ugly too, they still can sell it at a high price with a touch from BBM.I dont wish to see windows falls, but i also dont liketo see you too big too. SORRY. I want a competition in the market as it benefits us as consumer.

So far I am concern, as a consumer, I don`t quite like one company grow too big n hence dominates all compatitor, as it means a high price for me. I still have motorla v8088 or nokia 8800 it is so costly then as there is no compatitor. When I look at it I can get the same function for less than 50 dollars now.. so I am not biased. To my windows friends if you want to challenge android1st you have to windows their social application like whatapp, tunein, youtube, google search as this is their main weapon indirectly hypnotised people into using their platform.many application similar to this have been made, but coz many people have been get use to it, will refuse to change to similar app. Find a way to make people use you app. Coz android have enough power they will shut their app to their own platform like apple, n many faithful whatapp user will be FORCED to switch to android.2nd win their playstore. Aandoid have tons of free app than windows. Catch up with it as soon as possible same or more or many phones like samsung, htc, sony, lg will take out some order from you. Remember they will suffer bigger loss than you as they produce end product which is more costly than just platform. I don't understand why nokia still stick to you wheras it means loss to them.3rd be user friendly. Make your ui looks attractive w8 is better than w 6.5 pro, I own it therefore I can say it.but still there is a long way to go man maybe android be prepared to fight with windows in their office n multimedia form. They are too good for you. You only depend on third party app for your platform like doc to go, etc. Remember those people using tablet, they use it for work have many tools missing in the same appication. For trader investment , many tools have been missed to help investor to trade. The rest you are the best. For apple just open source n cheaper price

Let us try this. Use your yahoo messeger, try sending video to whatapps. Compare to whatapp to whatapps. See the speed. This is one of distinct example. Google try to make yahoo seemed weak.

For one week I have been using Lumia 920 after retiring my lovely underdog 701. I must say while I'm happy with my new toy, but I terribly miss many features from Belle. If Nokia were to come out with Carla (I mean upgrade Belle further) and put it in a Lumia body and specs. Add a decent 8mp camera, no I don't want overkill of PV in daily use phone and price it in under 400 dollar mark and you have a winner at your hands.

2. Old and yound can be conservative, it's an attitude not an age, maybe older people tend to be more conservative but your statement is reverse logic. Its like saying 'all cats are mammals therefore all mammals are cats'.
3. You have been using Nokia since Y2K? Seeing as you initially stated that you cannot use Nokia one of these has to be false, which is it?
4. If using the same operating system for both your phone and your PC would make you dumb, I agree, you should stop using both immediately as points 2 and 3 already prove that you can't afford the drop. ;)

> In reply to X @ 2013-01-18 11:20 from Am9Y - click to readWhat? Nokia have been using dual cores since ages ago. E73, N92, N75, E70, N93i, N77, N71, N91, E61i, N80, E65 N95, N82, N96, N73 they all had dual cores when you are still in diapers. Get your facts straight. Nokia's processor speed is slow yes but I want to see a phone which can beat N9 1Ghz processor in terms of multitasking (50+ open apps). iPhone? Haha funny. SGS3/Note 2/One X+? I doubt it even with their quad cores. Nokia will be dead unless Stephen Elop is out. Go back to Meego or go to Android whichever will surely lead to success.

those people who really uses and know every bit of android, windows or ios, will really agree with every statement that i have commented.some people that that are biased and absolutely clueless on someproduct just went on trolling. in this coming years, pc and tablet phone has to syncronised.why? give you a simple example, try it! don't just troll abt, knowing nothing. when you use yahoo messenger or yahoo mail to send to gmail. compare to gmail to gmail what is the diffeent of speed between the two. nowaday, every platform like apple is trying to lock their application, hardware to their own territory n making other platform seemed weak. i giving my point of view, on everyplatform,the weakness pt on on product n bad bad pt on the other.windows8 is much betternow, but than previous version. but for a phone it needs more renovation thanandroid do. when nokia keep on launching windows now, it is harder to sell, maybe next w9 is better. cause i see a tremendous improvent in windows from 6.5 version. but for a tablet,RIGHT NOW, i think is good peer for serious job than android, cause it has more tools with the same appliacation android. sosuggest it will be wiser for a nokia to launch a windows with bigger screen, by then the true windows potential can be opttimised. windows has been used by many peoplein the world for years in pc,and until now w8 is sold widely for tablet and pc nobody complained abt that

In every game of championship slugishness is never promoted Nokia was infact slow in their managment they tend move when others has moved ten miles away, like when manufactures were doing dual sim phones it took them 2yrs to start theirs they could had xtartec doing andriod when it was first invented but it was underestimation that lead to their downfall
