WP is pushed very hard by shills and bored Nokia employees disguised as users.How big a push iOS or Android needed? In fact iOS was met with a lot of negativity. Now Android is on 60% or so on the phones sold in the world, with less promotion than Nokia/WP phones had. Why? because people are not stupid to buy just a brand. Nokia is the smart-phone company equivalent of Saab. It had great phones in the past, now not any more. For a lot of years Nokia was behind in hardware(464 MHz CPU when iPhone 4 and SGS 1 had 1GHz-CPUs; 256MB of RAM when SGS 1 had 512MB, single core when others had dual cores, etc, etc). In desperation Nokia went to put some good cameras on their phones (N8, 808, Lumia 920), but that does not sell a phone. In the end, on FB(the place where those photes end) you can't see the difference between a 5MPix phone camera and a 24Mpix DSLR camera sometimes. And it went with WP7, a bland looking, unfinished OS. Then MS killed the WP7 compatibility with WP8. Now they can't even provide a last update for WP7 users. You know the saying "Fooled me once, shame on you, fooled me twice, shame on me". People "burned" once, by buying a Nokia will not come back, after all this. Remember where Nokia started! Once everyone dreamed of having one, now nobody wants it.

"but at least I'm not standing on the deck of a sinking ship either." - unlike many of you fandroids, I don't choose a phone by how good its maker financial situation is:) and I heard so many times this line with Nokia sinking but it's pretty dry:)

moral: dumbphones are simple and beautiful with no updates.

Nokia is so busy and has no time to push Microsoft for win 7.8 update. Instead they team up with Apple to sue Samsung.
Do you still want this kind of phone?
