tonystark.., 18 Oct 2013This was your question-" Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 size phone with WP8.1 ?? 1. What do y... moreNo one is even buying Galaxy Mega 6.3 with Android. What makes you think people will prefer a WP8 version of that to 1520?
90% but that is only 3% of the market = low numbers. Nokia should throw a quality android into the mix. The 3% would grow. Use the HTC 8X body and put an android into it. Grow - Win
Nobody can compete with Nokia when using same OS. They make all around best hardware and great software support.
90% means nothing. cause Nokia is in worst shape.
i live in Bandung, Indonesia.
there used to be dozen of Nokia official stores here,
but now, only few remains.
and those that remains are not in good shape either.
it's always quiet and barely has customers.
people just walk through it and not give a damn anymore.
i feel sorry for the salesmen / saleswomen, they're trying hard to sell the products but nobody cares anymore.

Win 8.1 still confusing, WP81 is st... moremicrosoft is finish ? yet microsoft still owns almost 80% + of the market with their xp's vista and 8? you think if people would not like the 8 they would jump to linux or mac? no , they would jump back to windows 7 which is also a Microsoft
Be Intelligent, 18 Oct 2013Apple is also the sole manufacturer of iPhones. 100% since the iPhone came out.
Whats your point?typo, meant to say nokia will have 100%, no one else will make wp, if ms able to takeover nok
ad, 18 Oct 2013well, are you sure Apple is a large manufacturer? Apple outsources all their iphone manufacturing.
BoB, 18 Oct 2013actually Nokia now = Microsoft.
Microsoft acquired Nokia. no bob, the shareholders have yet to approve.
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2013Then you would know that there was more demand for the Ativ than there was the product itself ... moreHow did you know that 80% of the consumers waiting for Nokia would just switch to Samsung?
"HTC, Samsung and Huawei are the only other manufactures to try their luck with Windows Phone 8, but given all the exposure Nokia's WP range is getting, the Asian manufacturers stood little chance of succeeding."
Really gsmarena? Do you think that maybe, just maybe, the fact that all the other manufacturers have Android options while Nokia does not might have something to do with it?
If Nokia sold an Android model along side the same phone fitted with WP8 the results would be the same as HTC, Samsung and Huawei.
It's WP that's failing. Based upon the comments I've read on gsmarena forums over the past year and my personal experience, the majority of people love Nokia hardware but don't like WP os.
Microsoft is finished. Nothing good come out of it lately. Win 8.1 still confusing, WP81 is still limited. RT & Xbox One have bleak future. And Ballmer will resign in near future. Oh my, talking about worst timing.
And Nokia will probably go down with MS.
If MS want more success with WP8, there's couple of thing they can do:
- Port some best-selling AAA games from Xbox to WP8, like Halo, Gear of War, exclusive to WP only. That's what Sony did with PSP, ported some PS2/PS3 games, it really helps sell PSP a lot.
- Lure developer from Vita/3DS into WP8. Game developer have doubt with future of Vita/3DS in regards of emerging smartphone, but they also concern with piracy level in smartphone. WP still have the lowest piracy rate to date. If MS can guarantee a secure and consistent platform for gaming in WP, I'm sure many developer will jump from Vita/3DS to WP.

I guess you dont really have as much experience with both OSes and probably dont even own Nokia phones to know their product quality history.
Well its ok. We all have our different opinions and manners!
