JEEZ!!
CB, 29 Jan 2011Steve Jobs even acknowledged that fact that they are not the biggest mobile phone manufacturer... moreYes, but the iPhone was simply a fashion statement with no real performance from the phones until the iPhone 4 came out. Out of all of Apple's phones, I can say only the iPhone 4 is as technologically advanced as smartphones shipped by other manufacturers.
There are only two ways Nokia can gain market share again:
1.) Make a ridiculously cheap smartphone with wifi that retails around £40
2.) Drop symbian and make their phones run on Android. There's no point throwing millions or billions into the Symbian market, especially if android has already gained vast popularity.
Since neither will ever happen, I can only say that Nokia will keep on sliding.
Some guy from Greece, 29 Jan 2011Symbian is not a browser. It is a name refering to various OSs used by Nokia.
Nokia released ... more"Symbian is not a browser. It is a name refering to various OSs used by Nokia."
I corrected that.
"Nokia released 24 phones in 2010, sold 453 million units.
Smsng released 98 phones in 2010, sold 280 million units.
Succesfull phones you say??"
I don't care about dumb phones. Lets' talk about smartphones. And the top ones, since you consider Nokia a top smartphone company. Samsung sold 10 million Galaxy'es, Apple sold 16 million iPhones, how many N8 Nokia sold?
Steve Jobs even acknowledged that fact that they are not the biggest mobile phone manufacturer (referencing to Nokia). But they want to be the best.
So they have shipped 16.2 million units and take note it's just Iphone 3Gs and Iphone 4. Which means they shipped an average of 8.1 million per unit.
Whereas with Nokia, they have released and shipped around 65 units ranging from N8 to Nokia 5030, etc. Which means they have shipped an average of 1.9 million per unit.
See the difference.
8.1 million per unit vs. 1.9 million per unit (Apple vs Nokia)
That is why Steve Jobs can proudly claim that they are now number 1 in terms of revenue.

See you at mwc! Android fanboys can keep their devices (all the same) and we die hard nokia fanboys will se the king meego and hopefully the new symbian. Nokia, meego and symbian FTW. Yeeeeah im a real nokiafanboy using zte blade at the moment just to try out android and its boring..
N8 was such great a success that Nokia did not even mention how many they sold in Q4. They mention that "Sales of the Nokia C3 were strong" though:).
Symbian is such a great browser that the Nokia management thinks of getting to Windows Phone 7. So Even Nokia admits that Symbian is worse even than WP7. LOL. So Nokia fanboys, chill out and get familiar with WP7:).
Winners of 2010 are APPLE, RIM & HTC . even cause Nokia is N0 1 they are -2 %
Nokia is the user-NON friendliest mobile manufacturer so Nokia WILL NOT BE the No. 1 and Bestseller mobile manufacture anymore.
Dear gsmarena fans, sorry to say, though I'm a die-hard Nokia (read Symbian) fan, and to me, no other OS can beat Symbian (yes, you can disagree with the agree), I think there is some problems going on inside the Nokia HQ. See, I have this N8 I'm using for a long 3 months now & didn't have any problems, but I've heard from many people around me who have deposited their N8 in the Nokia care & some of them are still waiting for the phones to come back. Same words goes for C6-00 & C6-01. Every electronics might fail anytime, but recent Symbians seem to fail more than ever. As a result, Nokia is losing it's faithful customers. If Nokia don't come up with some very good phones with very little (tends to zero) failing rate, I'm sorry to say, then Nokia doesn't deserve to stay at the lead. I wish you all the very best of luck, Nokia (you really need it)...
Myself, 29 Jan 2011the Samsung fans bought that 90 million triangle/s bs without even thnkn twice. But I knew the... morei totally agree but whats best is iphone doesnt even stand a chance. all now is for developers to take full advantage of that and i hope that nokia also take advantage of this powerfull gpu and make us some nice new UI with lots of eyecandy in the update later the year. wonder what the fanboys will say that time :-)
marc, 29 Jan 2011ha ha ha haaa LOL The Nokia n8 has a better GPU then the galaxy S and iphone4 and is 8million ... morethe Samsung fans bought that 90 million triangle/s bs without even thnkn twice. But I knew there was smethn fishy frm the start. If the SGX545 can, at best, produce 45 million triangles/s, how in the hell could the all-round inferior SGX540 produce 90 million? Lol and Samsung only just claimed that, but did not prove it. No one could!
Myself, 29 Jan 2011ye dnt hav te thnk the Broadcomm BCM2727 GPU on the N8 is better than the SGS SGX540. Samsung'... moreha ha ha haaa LOL The Nokia n8 has a better GPU then the galaxy S and iphone4 and is 8million sort of tegra2 which produce 40 million. LOL the 90million triangles p/s the galaxy s was supposed do produce was a lie HAHAHAHAA nice one samsung. N8 32million triangles galaxy s 28million triangles. cant wait to see the n9 with even better gpu and a proper cpu, gonna be awesome!!!!!!!!!
Megalord, 29 Jan 2011Sigh.... read this... http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_optimus_2x_p990_flaunts_its_dualcore_powers_... morewell, I knw what Im sayin if I say the N8 has the best connectivity of ANY smartphone out there
