ISJ5, 03 Sep 2013motorola had been top seller till 1998 then they fall to google nokia had been top seller f... moreSamsung is not just a mobile making company like Motorola or Nokia..they're conglomerates ...Samsung can can buy any of these telecom hardware companies ,other way around is impossible...Samsung had a market lead in Display,semiconductors,appliances,construction etc.Apple can't even imagine to buy samsung,,
I can't believe this, i was actually hoping to see a Nokia Android phone soon, Nokia would do such a great job with android, there would be so many new features in the mobile world if Nokia ran android now they're locked into windows phone 8. Elop messed up big time.
So this was Elop's the plan all along.
This was the reason he did not allow Nokia to make any android phone even though people were clamoring for it and it would surely have been a success story for Nokia. This is serious money and power play.

INDROID, 03 Sep 2013where are nokia's board of directors?? they were already knowing elop z ruining their company ... moreGreat man!? The man who made his own daughter live on welfare while he was a billionaire? The man who openly admits to shamelessly steeling countless great ideas over many many years? The man who openly treats people like scum? Who built up a corporation based on lies, stealing, and control? That's a great man?
I.Tahir, 03 Sep 2013It is the worse decision ever. A good brand like Nokia taken over my Microsoft. WP8 is dull(I ... moreAnd who are you to dictate whatever I should buy? Just buy what you think it's the best for your personal use. Different people have different preferences (-_-)a
What will happen now to lumia 1020? And others nokia phones? Specially the updates?
Still I'm planning to buy lumia1020
Double sword for Android.Paying royalties for Nokia and Microsoft.i hope microsoft refuse access of youtube from Any Windows devices.like Google doin with Youtube on windows phone.take a dose of their on bitterness
that's bullshit the worse decision is that nokia have appointed elop as company CEO
where are nokia's board of directors?? they were already knowing elop z ruining their company but still they didnt do anything... a great man steve jobs was pulled out of his own company for doing such nuisance who the hell is stephen elop then, why didnt the board members pulled him out n hire a new ceo... to see this day?? i cant believe myself that such a respectable company is going into the hands of monopolies... i still have my first smartphone, nokia 6630 working absolutely fine though 8 yrs old... also i own some of all time hit phones like N70 n N8 from nokia... its a death of prestige... u r not a winner Mr. elop but a big corporate loser... a CEO takes his/her company to a greater level, achieve new heights n tries to protect it in every possible way but u only did downfalls everywhere... u r a big time LOSER...
Thank you Nokia for providing amazing phones over the last years. Good Bye :(
moki, 03 Sep 2013Microsoft needs quality and popularity to gain traction to their os . Nokia has it . Nokia nee... moreDrastically incorrect!
Better for the companies...MAYBE...But not for consumers...Which in the end...Is not better for the companies.
Second Google acquiring Moto was bad?
So you claim Microsoft getting Nokia is good and Google getting Motorola is bad???
What the heck planet/alternate universe are you from!?
Well planned and executed master plan to buy out the Europe's tech crown by the Americans helped by Nokia board of directors. Trojan horse executed this master plan in step by step. Just recall the following.
1.Closed Symbian foundation immediately after the arrival of the Trojan.
2. Burning platform open memo which forced the Nokia fans not to buy Symbian and Meego phones and made those as obsolete. Symbian evolved to a decent stage atleast to power nokia's mid to low end smartphones and dual sim smartphones because it deserved to stay for atleast another 5 years. Beautiful meego could have been developed further and set to cover all price range.
3. Stopped all the development activities of both symbian and meego.
4.Each and every Nokia priority dealer not interested to sell Symbian phones.
5.Meego phones were not shipped to Many important markets.
6.Cancelled all roadmaps with immediate effect when there were no windows phones coming shortly.
7.Kicked all original Nokians who will become hurdle for this plan.
8.No plan B if windows phone fails.
Tomi Ahonnen who fought hard in online media against this stephen flop but many people not listened to him. Now it is totally upto the shareholders, Finnish government and the European Union to stop this back door entry. This will be the biggest lose to the Nokia fans and Finland.
It is big shame to the Nokia board of Directors who have betrayed the whole tech world. This will be the sadest day to the tech and telecommunication world.
Also think about the price offered to Nokia and compare it with Skype and Motorola value and you will know the fact.
I buy my last nokia phone Lumia 925.
I will never buy phone brand name with Microsoft.
I hate microsoft.
This makes me sad, Nokia is the word which we learnt for phones,This is indeed a bad move and Stephen Elop has completely screwed Nokia.Also it's not about OS when Samsung can sell both Android and WP why Nokia can't ship phones with Android, WP as well as Series 40 or Symbian.
Nokia could have survived if they allowed people to choose their OS with best quality HW as always.
If Elop the Double Agent was such a well wisher of Nokia, why is he stepping down from Nokia(whatever is left) to go back to Microsoft, that guy is really terrible
Google and Apple should expect tough times now. consumers should enjoy the competition and get the best devices. Are we looking for someone to buy blackberry....may be something...
