Looks like microsoft wants to benefit from nokia. Microsoft made a few phones, but they're just of no use(crappy hardware). Their surfaces struggled. Their software(windows os) is awesome. But coming to hardware (ofcourse software like symbian) nokia is best. They now use 'the worlds popular hardware maker(nokia)' with 'one of the world's popular os maker(windows)'. Sounds interesting. Ofcourse i like windows os, i dont like windows phone(sold my lumia 620). Ofcourse it's all only my opinion. Not to hurt anyone.

no You killed Nokia.
Thank God ... moreI still and will always use my N8
It's 2010's phone but it's still my best camera on phone
I have android phone too, but never satisfied with its capability. so in 2 years I've changed my android for twice ...
I use N8 for photography and productivity (mobile office) ...
I will miss Symbian
droopy, 04 Sep 2013Nokia fans worldwide, please move to android. NEVER buy a windowsphone!!! EVER.Samsung paying you much?
That screenshot looks so hectic... That is like the worst homescreen/arrangement I have ever seen on any mobile device.
Cant wait the have the Lumia 1520, it is the best mobile internet device ever, hope the cost is not too high.
Still, it needs to get the same Windows/Microsoft/Xbox store/marketplace/whatever as Windows RT and desktop windows.
A different store and ecosystem for phones and tablets? Crazy. Not even Android messed up that bad and they have merged the smartphone os (2.x) and the tablet os (3.x) by now.
Microsoft should have never let this mess occur in the first place
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2013As a Nokia fan, i will never ever buy any Microsoft phone/tablet/phablet and will boycott ever... morewhat did nokia for us? offered us ex-8-series junk models with 1000-1300 euros?. when nokia was on the edge their products were insane expansive and they take advantage from us big time. they practically had monopol. i do not need nokia anymore, i love sony since 1982,all my stuff is sony. now i own xperia z and is epic
And what about the Nokia custom apps? I know MS weren't happy, but they were definitely a feature. WP doesn't have enough traction for MS to pull this off - there's a chance that HTC and Samsung will pull out, leaving them with an Apple-like closed market... that was surely never the idea?
As A Nokia Fan..Symbian+Nokia was the best combo. symbian could have been developed more but not at the level other Os ARE BCOZ IT WOULD HAVE BEEN JUST SOME TWEAKS......NOKIA SHOULD HAVE ADOPTED MEEGO BUT AGAIN APP ECO SYSTEM WOULD HAVE SUFFERED AS IT WAS PROPREITARY TO NOKIA ...( I KNOW DEVELOPERS WILL HAVE MADE APPS BUT NOT ON A MAJORITY THOUGH ANDROID APP SUPPORT COLD HAVE BEEN ADDED..........NOW JOLLA.... Elop Came From MS and tookover.... declared symbian as burning platform OK TIME TO MOVE On and they Choose Windows Phone WP Mango/7,7.5,7.9 Sucked Big time but I was happy to Get a WinDows Phone 8 bcoz it was different from old windowsphone Not just in looks but also Feature wise and much more support..... Now Nokia has its Own Services to Brag About And Compete With others and i Knew It was a Transition Period so Nokia would slowly Steadily be Back on Tracks as it was.I Hoped they Would Bring More better Devices with better Specs that are now Common like FHD DIsplays with their own CBD Display Camera Tech mapping Music Etc Together And create A Enjoyable Smartphone Experience..... It was struggling but not anymore..... then Suddenly MS Overtakes it.......NOW What Does it Mean(Forget about Branding and all)We will still get Nokia Maps And Other Services But will We get More added Updates Like Nokia Amber Update......???? that was a common issue but There is Also a More better side to it that as MS has Acquired it Nokia will not have to Pay Licensing Fess and Even Ms Will Earn More per device And Overall A Cheaper Smartphone will be available with Fast updates and all.....Now the Thing that Gives ME Shivvers is Will MS Suck out the Honey and Kill the BEE Or will it give it More space A Huge Garden Space to Suck Honey from New Flowers and Make more Honey............As A Nokia Fan i am very Saddened and A little bit happy somewhere having been a part of Nokia history using it devices and how consumer oriented they were...Wont Say RIP Nokia But Take Care And Be Aware Nokia.Stay Alive.

So if you are Nokia fan you do not buy Nokia phone? Are you stopped your medications? Using Windows XP and outdated Nokia tells a lot about you.
Gelvin, 03 Sep 2013If there is NO Nokia, I won't buy any WP8. I had bought a WP8 only because it is named as Noki... moreI wonder... Will MS now suddenly speed up developing WP8, fix all issues, meet all consumer demands... or treat it like they did before, keep people waiting for updates? Personally I think it will be working on it as slow as before.
Anyway, I was a little interested in WP before, as Nokia made it more attractive, but not any more. Don't want a MS phone. I have Windows on my PC but all the other software is not by MS.
If there is NO Nokia, I won't buy any WP8. I had bought a WP8 only because it is named as Nokia means there is a quality behind it. I am not going to spent my money on a Microsoft Lumia. Will be missing you Nokia.
Though, I don't even know what will be coming next so....
i will not buy any Microsoft devices
now trying to sell my new Lumia
As a Nokia fan, i will never ever buy any Microsoft phone/tablet/phablet and will boycott every Microsoft stuff i have. First of all, i will get rid of Windows XP SP3 in my PC or replace it with some Linux OS. I have had Android devices but wasn't happy with the user experience and the OS. I'll move to Jolla as it arrives here. Thanks goodness, i didn't ever buy a single Nokia Lumia. That's good job, i did. I still am using Nokia 2310 since 2007(my first phone). If you're a true fan of Nokia, you wouldn't ever buy any Nokia phones(Microsoft phones actually). Thanks goodness, some staffs from Nokia left the company and formed Jolla and created a cool OS which is Sailfish OS.

Thank God ... moreHe he I have no regrets, a Lumia 925 and 520 buyer. Get over it, you life don't depend on some mobile OS, like any other phone is only plastic and software on it. Weird to see people so emotional attached to a brand, geez chill out.
As for me, i will keep buying more Lumia phones in the future, because the Lumia phones will get even better, more integration and money for R&D.
I love nokia. I bought nokia lumia 920 last year. It is a great phone. N the os it pretty good. I love microsoft too. For me,it is a good thing for microsoft to bought nokia. So that there will no longer a debut about nokia please go to android. I used android before. 3 of them are from samsung. But nokia is better than samsung. And window is better than android. Im hoping there will come a full window pc smartphone on the nokia hardware. And fandroid,just buy your samsung. Forget about nokia. Nokia hardware n technolohy are not suit for you. Onlu samsung stupid reature are made for you all android idiot. And for nokia fan and lover. This is for the best for nokia. Want to junp to android? Just go. Stop crying arguing about this matter. Two giant had unite. Im happy with that. No longer fear that nokia wll made an android phone ever again..
Congratulations Lumia Buyers,you said you are saving Nokia..
no You killed Nokia.
Thank God i'm not responible for the death of Nokia,
If Lumia failed at the start,Nokia would have survived throwing Elop outside,
All Lumia Buyers,you killed Nokia,
I am a diehard Symbian Fan.
