I bought one of these in Norway for a little over $600 so $99 sounds like a deal. :)

I think it's crappy that AT&T isn't interested in keeping the customers they have by making them the better offers on new phones.

Nokia has the best hardware, Android is the most sought after platform. Wonder why didnt Nokia went t he Android way!! Now it seems to be too late.. The only hope for Nokia is that the MS makes the Windows Phone OS competitive in terms of possibilities and the app ecosystem, bu then that doesnt seem to be happeneing pretty soon.. till then Nokia wil continue to concede ground to flimsy players such as Samsung & company

Don't be worried.MS is not stupid,they will never rebrand Nokia for something else.Plus they already enter the hardware market and saw that "M$" is not recognized brand for hardware...

P.S. as for "Asha" they never were actually real Nokias,just a name for sale.

Then again the shareholders could always reject the Micoshaft offer.

Haven't been to India lately to see if that option has caught on with the banks there.

I cannot believe you come out with the fabulous phone and have it locked exclusively to AT&T. I left them and will never go back! so I guess I won't be able to get this phone, and you lost the sale. What good if the price is slashed to $99, it won't work with my carrier.

Peoples are just attracted towards the lower price on contracts but they are completely unaware of how much annoyed they will be for the next one-two year. You are lucky you don't got any carrier in India...

Yeah agreed.. USA people are really lucky. These kinds flagship are a bit hard to afford for the third world countries. Here in India there is no contract options. need to be a rich people to buy these things.

Nokia's biggest mistake was allowing someone an outsider to be their CEO.

Nokia with android still sucks. They need a huge change when it comes to design.

They would be smart to reject the offer. Nokia has an Android handset all but ready for the market. The sales of the Asha platform are doing well in picking up the mid and low end feature phone market. Most of the Lumia's are selling OK (although I think they'd do better with Android or even the Asha 1.2 OS) and MS certainly needs Nokia more than Nokia needs MS.

Looking forward to seeing the vote outcome.
