As for the rest, the reason why Nokia is going down is not because of other brands illusions. It's because other brands simply made more market suited products in stead of stubbornly sticking with a clearly dying OS. Nokia clearly has a recent history of announcing phones with outdated specs. The new Lumia's are still not really up there with the high rollers of these days. (just think of the thickness of the devices, screen resolution, bezel size and pricing...)

many companies do that so there's nothing to see here, but I can't remember the time I've seen so much hate towards a company...I don't understand how an simple object(the phone) can make someone act like this. fandroids are just frustrated "brave and knowing all" wannabes, hiding behind their abused monitors while waiting for new commands. They don't have an opinion of their own, all they understand is destroy and conquer and apparently they don't have a favourite brand since their wish is Nokia adopting lagdroid(this is the funniest part, they didn't seem to find a decent OEM among the "few" ones currently available:)). The scarry thing for them is when rhey have to step into the real world...

Obviously this is the deepest point Nokia could sink. Good news because here the slope starts going up. In a few years Samsung will undergo this situation. That's the cycle of any trend.
As it regards Nokia it experienced this because nowadays people want illusions, not the real deal. But being a majority does not mean you're right. It means just you're brainwashed.
Wishing the best for all those amazing talented people who've worked for Nokia!

To all the nokia fanboys.How well is the lumia series selling if more and more people are getting laid off.Hardly the signs of a company making good profit.Same thing last year nokia laid thousands of people off.Sorry butvpeople dont want the ugly os that is wp8.Another epic fail on a ship thats sinking quicker then the titanic.

I agree with all ur smart manpower in selling pizza, u will get a good sales. But not in phones.in a tablet phones or laptop maybe as they canbe syhncronised with pc when they want to edit their photos.windows is not user friendly when it comes to phones, but they are a powerful tools when it comes to multimedia, which android can't ve a match with. So if u re still making small display phone, I suggest swithching to android. But if u still stick w8, I suggest making bigger display tablet phones like 7 to 10 inch min to optimized w8. U can choose to ve partnership with intel or amd with their quadcore processor at 2 gz min to gain tablet popularity instead of bulky laptop. Remember intel or amd big names can pull your market up directly.

Nokia pls give away ur ego and join wit google and am damn sure that u wil become No.1 again bcoz all r very crazy abt nokia hardware. Nokia mobile wit android OS wil surely rock the world. In the past all other phone manufacturers were using ur symbian OS they why do u feel shame to get another OS. If u can afford to get Windows OS they why cant u go for Android. Then surely there wil be no need to sack ur employees and lease ur own Headquarters. As a dear fan of Nokia i have few words for u.. Nokia just lose ur EGO and thereafter u wil never lose anything !!!

Even symbian was a better OS than wp8. I dont really get why they had to kill symbian. Its like theyre betting all have to this new OS that may or may not grow and mature. Every manufacturer imo should invest on at least 2 smartphone OS. No, i dont consider s40 as a smartphone. Its just a feature phone.
