Nokia people from HQ! I own a big company too, n once bankrupt nrise again.U are telling us that u want to keep on trying n trying. Tell us how much production on each type that you are going to cover. It is not wise to repeat the same mistake bro. W8 is not absolutely bad, vut is not going tobe good use in phones. Maybe in atablet. Look at asus portfolio, they make good sales in windows for transformerbso forth. If u still insist on windows, try diversify making tablet. Then ur platform can be made into good use. Iam sure those laptop user will prefer windows than android when it come to real hard work.

May its better for google to own nokia like Motorola, not only it will make nokia fans happy it can start to grow a new wing under Google. It's a hard working company just on the wrong platform, imo.

Just like what pmty75 has said, let nokia work their magic on a dominant os like android (since ios is closed), I personally would definitely want to try android phone with pureview and nokia exclusive apps and their quality build. Show people why they should choose nokia, while letting wp take all the time it need to grow.

WP might eventually reach some market penetration or it might stay dead as a doornail - but either way, it would be too late for Nokia. At this rate, they'll soon need to hire 500 people just to have zero employees...

I just want to say that Swimming against the flow is bravery but U will survive only if u r a good swimmer.

More open source platforms are coming into market soon so Nokia have to work more harder on its devices. Rather then producing many devices with low features try to introduce 1 or 2 with great design, features & functionality.

Nokia is definitely a Trustworthy n Easy to Handle so I hope Nokia will back with a bang.

Selling pizza is not the point here, the point here should be what flavour will nokia put on top of the pizza.

So it looks like Nokia's failure with WP (which is obvious thing comparing this disabled OS to Android) means dead for Nokia.

Look how Windows Phone OS impacts Nokia devices: compare for example the 808 and 920 when it comes to camera features etc. Windows Phone is so immature it doesn't support many things Symbian has supported for years.

I assume People who are desperately asking for android in Nokia are so unsatisfied with other brands . I can understand the logic . It itself proves how much people love and trust nokia as a quality manufacturer . But i dont think nokia s decision to go with windows was made out of foolishness or ego . It was a wise thought made by an experienced company. Rather than being just another sheep in the flock nokia choose to stand out and be different . And even their selection of partners was strategic . They could have gone with meego or firefox they went with an experienced and established company . May be windows phone is amateurish and young but it has potential of giving an entirely different user experience . Its just a matter of time . Its all about patience .

Some people acts like these phone manufacturers are like religions.... Instead of commenting on spec, usability etc, they bash each other like cult members... dont know why though

Samsung going to launch w8 is not a big issue dude, the truth is, is it sellable like s3, note 2. Let us see the report, n u will agree with me. W8 is not use for phone ultimedly, it is use for office, n multimedia. Wheras android iis meant ultimedly for phones. Cmon don't be stubborn, its not going to benefit us. But u will

ke a look at sony, htc, samsung etc,portfolio how many phones is sold using windows compare to android. Samsung with their super amoled injected to their phones have a hard time selling window. U with nothing still sell windows poor lad. If u want to sell windows sell it at 7 to 10 inch. As windows is famous for their office like asus dude. Not 4 inch. What for 4 inch cannot be used for office. Use swot anyelisis bro, or u going to bankrupt
