For me android isn't the main problem.Nokia should address the lack of useful and fun apps for Symbian,nowadays people are so dependent on apps and symbian phones doesn't have much to compete against ios and android platform.
Mark Fauzii, 02 Jul 2013Wooow, more than 600 comments. What a nice discussion!!! I've arrived in final thought: Mic... moreYour comment shows how much knowledge you have in smartphone industry. Start reading and stop judging based on few (around 600) comments on gsma lol
Pseudored, 02 Jul 2013The reason i feel WP OS is smooth because it has only pseudo-multitasking.You can open only 5 ... moreyour feeling is wrong :) I don't know your background but still sharing some articles on both
As mentioned in above article, Dormant is state before Tombstoned and there are alternatives to achieve 90% of so called multitasking.
If you dig in WP SDK you know WP can achieve everything for multitasking if dev design and develop their app for same.
Now WP allowed 8-9 Apps and not 5-6 only :) Sufficient for most tasks on PHONE. btw BB10 also allowed only 9 apps and few earlier version of android too ohh also heard rumors things will again change in KLP ;)
Check for differences.
Also check below link with answered:
So Overall NONE true multitasking. There is basic difference between WP and Android that general public ignored. In Android each activity paused (App contains multiple activity) when it goes in background while in WP just application paused and not internal pages (treat pages = activity).
Hope this clarify few myths. If i missed anything please enlighten me :)
i really think that nokia would be making a right turn if they were going to go with android, yes microsoft does have a lot of potential but android is dominating the market the smart idea would be to stay with windows phone but also start producing android devices since their lumia sales are slowly increasing, they can become part of the android system and build up rep there
so what now nokia fanboys, looks like ship is going to sink, its a fact that microsoft wp os is not selling well, wold wide knows it, i remember the article that nokia trade-up in exchange their old phone to wp8 phone. i still love my galaxy s and i wont trade it to this wpee. nokia is sinking. The only solution is that leave wp and adopt android, wp is a cult
Completely Disagree, Nokia Going with MS is best dession they ever made it take time but surely nokia would be fruitul ... Lumia Designs are best in the Industry ... Windows 8 is started working slowly but growing Steadliy.
no shit, sherlock! they should have done it ages ago, but nooo, they are too cocky to go with what the public prefers. they should have kept working on maemo in the first place, or symbian, or meego... going with windows just made their death slower...
it just might be too late for them to go droid now...
why does there is a debate about nokia not making android devices...wp8 and apple ios6 are not much different..wp8 has a better app store then ios6 has wp8 uses minimum hardware to work fine and looks stunning..ios6 is now at the top but wait microsoft is catching up...people are now getting bored of the trashy os of android and switching to wp so i guess it is a matter of few years wp will rise above android as ms is constantly working to make it better and better...nokia offers GLONASS which is amazing...so please leave these speculations nokia will again emerge as a leader once again...also nokia's new asha platform 1.0 is very nice better then bada os of smsung..nokia constantly working to bring new technology whereas samsung is using the available tech....nokia is a innovator..
No need to go Android. 75% of the apps in Android are simply live wallpapers, dolphin browsers add on, launchers, themes and marlwares. Windows phone 8 OS is a nice OS and it will be full baked after some major updates to the OS. In this world, almost every OEMs has gone android, even those cheap Chinese companies. Android has many bugs such as lagging, some apps don't work, heating up, restarting, virus issue, your privacy isn't safe in Android, and many other issue. Nokia wouldn't fit in the Android image, but with their hardwares they will sell crazy and Google will stop innovating since there will be Nokia. Nokia can't go Symbian because it's hard for developers to create apps for each and every Symbian OS and the old apps don't work in a latest compilation of the Symbian OS. Symbian was the best OS, it had every basic things but nothing lives forever. Sailfish OS looks promising and i think Nokia would fit in that picture perfectly, keeping their Windows Phone business aside. But Microsoft won't let Nokia have any other competitive OS until 2016. Nokia hardwares are the best phone hardwares in the world, it's without a doubt. Microsoft must come out of their mentality and improve the OS ASAP and it seems like they are working on it. Nokia's fate is in the hands on Microsoft now. Android apps leaks your privacy.
Reason for Anndroid's more market is: let's take samsung as android manufacturer. It has all galaxies all the way from A to Y, only Z left. Then every letter has its own portfolio e.g. S,S2,S3,S4. On the other hand, all the WP8 phones: Nokia L520,620,720,820,920,925. HTC: 8S,8X,8XT. Huawei: Ascend W1. Samsung ATIV (2 phones, i don't know names). So as I mentioned that WP8 handsets can be counted on fingers, and despite that, WP is rising.
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2013Goodbye Nokia, hello Microsoft?
http://bgr.com/2013/07/01/nokia-microsoft-merger-speculation/"Nokia is preparing to exit the smartphone business..." Does that mean Nokia is going to make smart camera instead like they did to the Lumia 920? LOL!
Nokia Lumia 925 - concept phone looking
Nokia Lumia 928 - prototype looking phone
Nokia Lumia 920 - finish product
Nokia "EOS" 1020 - let's just make a camera with added phone feature
Nokia "EOS" 1025 - let's put another lens just like we did on the 925
Near future - Nokia will be a camera brand instead of mobile company! LOL!
dex, 02 Jul 2013If Nokia makes a Top Nokia Droid with 5.6 FullHD Screen, MultiCore with 4K graphic support, ... moreNo, it won't. 5.6 is way too large for smartphone, I can barely put my S3 in pocket.
i remember an iphone 4 news page a couple of years ago having 1000+ comments, this is second most commented i seen, this is crazy, lol
Nokia is the Titanic and the iceberg is WP, they can't steer away from it. Abandon ship!
Goodbye Nokia, hello Microsoft?
