The peak always comes right before the downslope. Watcht the coming quarters. Their slowly declining average price/revenue per unit is going to keep getting worse. iPhones, Androids and Blackberries will keep eating into their smartphone market share. And it'll keep going until Nokia understands that the future is all about software: user interface, native app stores (whether open like Android Market or closed like Apples) and tight integration with cloud/web based services.
There's no evidence yet that Nokia understands all that. Just look at the last couple of Nokia smartphone releases.
They'll always have their dumbphone business though...
Every Nokia article has an Apple troll. Nokia haters get off on trolling, shame shame shame.
Barcode, 22 Apr 2010lol if the Ovi store was 10 times bigger than the Android market (which has about 40,000 apps)... moreIt is not an Apple vs Nokia debate. Apple will always be supported by the yanks like Cherry Cola. The whole world might be against it, yet the fat yanks will love their Cherry Cola.
Nokia just made some bad decisions. Apple is Apple - just one handset - that is it! The yanks may love it, yet the rest of the world knows better...
Profit increases from 55 million to 474 million euro same quarter last year .thats amazing means 10 times more as compared to same quarter last year. We want u earn more go nokia go captured the world
I personally think this has been Nokia's swan song. Yes, Nokia mad a desperate move with the free voice-nav thing, but all the delays lately and poor quality software/handsets... I believe Nokia will be writen to the history books much like Atari and Netscape...
Bey, bey Nokia...

Anonymous, 22 Apr 2010Do you actually think that it would be better if every manufacturer had their own OS?Nah, don't worry. He still has that mentality about every hardware manufacturer using his own "firmware" for their machines.
You know... he is probably still using pre-DOS computers and Nokia 6120 on TDMA. Ah, and he was probably living in a nuclear shelter, as he seems to have lost the Microsoft bandwagon of the last two decades. This new world of companies specialized on producing OSes is wiiiiiillld!
Deep space bar, 22 Apr 2010Your a noob bugs are ment to be there so firmware updates can be done
Nothing can be perfect ... moreI multi-task like crazy between 3 or 4 apps, sometimes even more. I remember having over or about 20 different software running and I didn't even notice the difference in performance. So far only Symbian devices can do this with such a low processing power like 250mhz with this less memory.
I am so much used to it that I can't hook with any other set out there.

Nothing can be perfect cause there is no such thing
Android is confusing it's worse then symbian which is kinda funny
Plus symbian doesn't need much to run
But android does
Powerful OS doesn't mean super high specs it means it can run on minimum specs
My e70 has an ARM 7 @220mhz with 64mb of RAM and can still record vids and sound,take pics,copy and paste,multitask and gps
So how is that not a powerful Mobile OS
All nokia needs to do is have 256mb RAM as a standard nothing else
Double tapping is fine and do you wanna randomly open stuff all the time

By looks it is not doing so well but it will be since it is getting its makeup done and doing such a job with this big software takes really really good amount of blood sucking time.
Andriod will be the future but right now all these new OSes need too much time to grow up and catch up with these old guys like Symbian and WinMo in term of functionality. For most of us serious users of SmartPhones, experience is when the JOB is done nicely instead of playing with fancy icons.
Deep space bar, 22 Apr 2010Lol android just has alot support form manufactures and google plus The the only other 2 com... moreYeah Nokia with their buggy slow os. Like when you rotate the screen it takes ages for the phone to react. They have outdated resistive screens that requires double tapping when entering menus. Like what the hell is that?! When installing an app, you still have this tons of confirmations to go through. Even applying themes takes 48 years. Its already 2010 and they still have that so last decade Symbian UI. There's nothing in the OS that's smooth. Heck you can't even hear anyone saying Symbian is smooth. Kinetic scrolling isn't even available in some parts of the UI. It's not even in some of their phones either. Kinetic is only at 15 fps. And there's the bugs and all. Did I mention doubletap in menus on unresponsive resistive screens? Wow... Symbian is such an awesome OS, don't you think? *sarcasm* A phone is all about user experience and smoothness something you nokia fanboys will never understand 'cause all you think about is features.. pathetic much. Android is the future.
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2010and out of the 107+ million so called "smartphone" handsets, how many of these users... moreOvi Store is catching up, really. There's about 2M DL's per day right now (1.7M at the time this report was done, Jan-Mar). Ovi is about 10 times bigger than the Google Market, and about 3-4 times smaller than Apple Store. But except this to change. 2M DL's with today's phones means they can easily double it with next-gen hardware.

The the only other 2 companies that used symbian are samsung and sony
And android has who....think about it
They can't make their own Smartphone OS so they uses others
Nokia has and will always use their own OS
Since they actually HAVE one
Moto,samsung,S.E,LG,HTC were are their own smartphone OSs ......nowhere to be found cause they don't exsist yet
Plus google still hovers over android so it's not fully open source like symbian and maemo
Nokia are neglecting us mid-range phone buyers with their stupid resistive screens and old Symbian OS, plus slow CPU's, plus cheapskate accessories like when you buy the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic you get headphones worth 10 pence.

All you nokia fanboys are all 'market, market share' 'features, features' but do you actually think it has great user experience? It's like the slowest OS ever. Even you know that and just don't wanna admit it.
symbian^3 isnt delayed, nokia always said it will launch s^3 based handsets in Q3.
