Poodle's android is heavily dependent on other manufacturers and others are dependent on android. I like Apple or BB as they are standing on their own. I prefer BlackBerry 10 coz I don't need 700K off apps. I want ä class.

Also, I remember when top 2 were Nokia and Motorola and no one even mentions Motorola any more (sadly). So they must be doing something right. Brand? Well, I personally like having someone stand behind the product I'm buying. If that someone is on the same continent, even better.

Read the news carefully. Nokia may not be in the lead of Smartphones but it had already sold a record breaking Lumia(s) then ever, if compared to it's past sales. This, just this first generation Lumia Windows Phone 8 made a big impact on the population, I wonder what the second, third, fourth and so-on Lumia Windows Phone line-ups will bring for people. Nokia is still on the second place on the mobile phones chart.

Mobile Phones category includes every type of phones from the entry level hand-sets to a high-end flagship smartphones devices and Nokia is on number 2. If you aren't able to understand English then I am feeling sorry for you but what I just defined, is defined in the article.

As being a Nokia fan, I still consider Nokia to be a great king of the past and a rising WP king of the future along with Sony and HTC. Don't try to change the subject by randomly picking ONLY my post from the crowd and high-lighted it as it has nothing to do with the subject. As I said, I am already done with you. Therefore, I don't need to argue with you further. Peace boy

1) The last 4 years I am talking to nokia dying, but no one believes me
2) Ofcourse, that is WHY Nokia dying
3) Because, old brands (HTC, SONY, NOKIA) will not accept the fact that they have to follow in the footsteps of technology at a reasonable price, if you want to get what the rest of the battle of competition!
No one wants to buy the brand, everyone is looking for speed and technology trends ...

On this site, all people have for years lived in peace and harmony, not spit on brands, while Samsung has not made phone Omnia HD, Apple 3GS and Nokia N8.
That was when it started trolling and hating
... Do you know why?
Because none of the fans of the old brand did not accept the fact that things have changed, that was superfast 3GS phone, the Omnia HD was the first AMOLED display and the first HD video camera and speed that is matched like 3GS. Nokia not have compete with n97 (worst phone ever)
Nokia a year later announced N8, but, N8 coming Q4 2010 too much late for all. Samsung announce in februar 2010 Galaxy S1 and Wave, 2 superior phones than competition. Best displays, processors and GPU.
All small manufacturers learn from Samsung... and Samsung learn from Apple.
The error of the old brands is that they believe in selling more of their names, rather than the quality of its products!

1) Nokia is still no where to be seen on the smart phone list (future phone numbers are dying so aren't anything to brag about).
2) Samsung sold more smart phones then the next 4 combined.
3) I'm surprised ZTE, Huawei and lg sold more smart phones than Sony HTC and Nokia.

i m still convinced on blackberry platform; i still don't like the samsung touchscreens. Blackberry has advantage of messaging system . which is still important for business users. Samsung is more focused as a toy to play funny games. not for the solid business users.
