Was there any specific problems the Lumia 900 users went through that we don't know about?

That's what I always said, Nokia Lumia 920 is the beat phone in the world.

"While this figure remains stable over time, the proportion of Android users moving towards the Apple brand increases. 19% of iOS sales over the last year were derived from Android users, compared to 9% in 2011,”

Interesting, amount of people who goes from android to iOS has doubled. Weird because so many times we hear why anyone want iPhone its total crap etc. Then we see this kind of news ;)

Maybe the android wasnt that good after all...

This doesn't surprise me... I live in the UK, and I bought my Lumia 710 in September... Because people who don't care about having an extensive games and app store, and also want a great deal bought a windows phone... Why??? Because they were flogging them for peanuts (picked up my Lumia (pay as you go) for £90 brand new from a well respected high street phone store)

Although Microsoft, Nokia, blah blah can boast "great sales" it came at a cost... They probably lost a fair bit of profit, per phone sold

they deserve to disappear from market completely because they are too slow in updating and innovation. they let the 7.5 users down big time specially the Lumia 900 users.

they dont bring any changes and improvements quicker than Android.

Sorry its thanks to nokia and not microsoft. If it was thanks to both then Htc and Samsung will also sell lots of Wp devices but everyone here know Nokia is wp king now don't we? MS has done to little to make me say they deserve to succeed with wp, one of the reasons i want wp to succeed is cos of Nokia, i mean the main reason.

Android fanboys keep denying, but WP8 is making its mark. Well done Nokia and Microsft.
