Guess, 18 Apr 2013Time to kiss widows platform goodbye.... Android all te way Nokia's mission is connecting people, not turning people into trolls.
right now nokia should try new os like android on their device..we see that, many low compatible like huawei, zte have grow up after use android os on their device..nokia should change their market strategy..dont depend on window like lumia..
Having used Lumia 710, 820 and 620 I am of the candid opinion that wp is far behind.
It doesn't look good for Nokia. YoY net sales are down massively. QoQ are down quite a bit too, eventhough the new Lumia line actually became more massively available. True, Lumia sales were up compared to Q4, but of the 5.6 million devices sold, 1/3rd, or 1.9 million devices, were old WP7.X Lumia devices. So in 1 quarter, Nokia only managed to sell 3.7 million Windows Phone 8 devices, less than the 4 million iPhones that Verizon sold all alone in Q1. All that, while Nokia had massive advertising going on.
The actual loss also is writing on the wall. They finally are through their restructuring expenses, but they also are out of Microsoft subsidies slowly, meaning they will have to stand on their own feet again. Time will tell if they can manage, but the massive drop in feature/dumbphone sales they had to suffer, isn't very positive for them. There's a bulk of revenue dropping away there.
Reading through the reactions here, one can even see that Nokia and/or WP8 fans are afraid too, as there is a lot of Android trashing going on again, baseless claims of required hardware to be able to run Android, while promoting WP8 for being able to run on thin air.
killer droid, 18 Apr 2013Almost there to bankruptcy you can do it Nokia hahahhahawith so much of services at their disposal(music,e.t.c.),maps,loads of patents,nokia siemens network-nokia becoming a banckrupt is still a joke ,even if their luminary lumias strike zero.
I find the lumia series promising. It's just a matter of time. I dont think it's matured like that of ios or android,just in a year everything would be perfect.
i knew that, 18 Apr 2013make a flagship smartphone to go up Against apple , that's who Nokia needs to beat to become ... morenow blame sammy to change that era.with no steve jobs,i guess only a pureview can change that.
ha ha ha 5.6 million ,samsung sold over 68 million smartphones.nokians made people fool over 13 years but now time is over RIP nokia
So two years later from switching from Symbian to Windows they are selling a similar amount of smartphones as before but with no actual profit.
2010 Q4 results (results prior to switching platform strategies):
net sales: €12.65 billion (up 6% YoY)
profit: €1090 million (up 10% from Q3)
Symbian^3 units sold: >5million
I wonder how much longer we have to wait to see their new strategy actually become more successful then their old. How long did the company expect the transition to take?
Slow and steady wins the race!.....but the problem here is that this race never ends...! :p
i bet if nokia today annouces an android phone with exactly same specs and everything like s4, it will be touch and go
Nokia's success will always be the underdog unless elop is enveloped (with a resignation letter)

Title says "€150 million loss". Why is the arrow in the picture pointing up?:)
Nokia is dieing and sinking. Why the hell they don't sell MeeGo devices or Sailfish?? They would not have any losses. Sometimes I think to myself Elop is an alien and not Nokia-friendly one. FIRE THIS CEO!!
