Lower or middle class family dont know much about Microsoft. They know about Nokia. So they will hesitate to buy a microsoft mobile. Its sounds like Indian smartphone manufacturer Micromax. That's why, R.I.P Microsoft not Nokia. They still remain in our heart.
Finally my dream came true, a world with no Nokia anymore.
It's better Microsoft do not erase 'Nokia'. If it does, it will be the beginning of END OF MICROSOFT. If you can conduct a survey, you can see that people love Nokia more than Microsoft.
what a giant brand i was buying and playing all those years... like it died like a joke... rip nokia...

SetiroN, 21 Oct 2014I have no idea how the big marketing PhDs at Microsoft fail to realise how much the Nokia name... moreYes, it's feel sad that Nokia Brand is coming to end. But Business is lot different than your image between consumers. Biggest reason for Nokia to fail is that they didn't changed speedily as Android gripped market. They didn't adopted Android, that is their biggest failure. So they lost market and financially got weaken, so Microsoft found the opportunity to come to Mobile Market with Best Brand which was in their worst shape. Finally Microsoft is not working to build Nokia Brand, they hv put their money in to it to build themselves. It's fault of Nokia, that didn't changed with time. Still Nokia X Phones between consumers are regarded as best build and reliable phones. If they had adopted early, Samsung would NOT hv been in this position Today. Bad Luck NOKIA!!!
Since the day i started using mobile, was holding only nokia mobile in hand, really love the design and built quality of the phone, if nokia had adopted android at earlier stage, there wont be samesung or isheep dominating the smarphone market, it Elop mistake who choosed the wrong turn towards Windows OS, Luv nokia forever !!!
I only bought my lumia not its because its wp or what, but its because its nokia lol, ip5s or z3compact? Dont like the new look of ip6
This is all happening due to "Stupid" Stpehan Elops actions. he ate NOKIA.
If he was not the CEO at NOKIA , it not be happend.
Rest In Peace NOKIA.......
Mr. Elop now you can to the post-mortem of NOKIA
Android fanboys are trolling here. Hey. If you guys love android. Good for you. Let me say this. My 1st phone was nokia 3350. I used many nokia phone. Why? Cos the hardware is Great. Now,i bought a Lumia 1520. Why? Cos nokia too. I never bought nokia symbian phone. Why? Cos it is terible. I prefer window phone. Cos it's better than android. I also used android os for 2 yrs. The browsing experirnce is more worst than window phone. Full all downloading crap apk files. Always asking do need to scan virus whatever. And by the way. To those who thinking Google can bought microsoft. You really are day dreaming.

He was sent by Microsoft do destroy Nokia. Of course Microsoft got all from Nokia (invention etc), and thats what they needed to be at least a little bit successful in cell phone market.
which is why i sold out my 1520 after few months of using it. microsoft seems to not develop there windows phone os but change the nokia brand name. i have no idea what success it would bring to the company. bad move.
well it is just sad how a huge brand as Nokia who reigns over the past cellphone market now going to disappear. Microsoft is almost all to blame, it's like they used Nokia as a tool to improve until the way they are now.
Jolla cellphones are cool, beautiful yet simple. Somehow resembles Nokia, wanted it that badly, too. but unfortunately its market is very limited, not even available in my country and yet it launches its device very seldom compared to other brand, and is not reachable to every market segment. the only Jolla-jolla is high end phone for me, while I'm just a mid.
either way, Good job, Nokia.

If you don't want to use your phone for anything serious, then it's obvious that a lower range phone is enough for you.
The Nokia was already dying, way before the announcement from Elop. The N-Gage was already died, and the Nokia/Symbian market share was rapidly declining. In this time, Nokia was far behind the competition in both HW and SW sense.
I admit that the Nokia 808 has the best camera. Today, it's still has the best camera in a phone in the world. But that's the only good thing in that phone. Nothing else. So doesn't worth to mention.
As I said to the other commenter here, the N9 is a good example for that Nokia was years behind the competition.
Only Nokia was responsible for it's own fall.
The WP is unpopular partly because of the crap UI and limitations.
After all I lost respect in Nokia since the trashy phone that is n97.
Holy sh#t, that phone has serious problems!!!
If Nokia sells android device early like others it would still be a top brand everyone knows its hardware but its too late sorry bye nokia.
It will like shock for nokia user
after changing name to microsoft
The real amazing brand nokia
making the best phones like N95,N9,N8 is going to change their name
I buy the nokia phone because it is a trusted brand
I think that Name 'NOKIA' should not be changed to 'MICROSOFT'
