mf 1st humble suggestion for nokia-
stop producing mobile phone with fixed focus camera!!
my 2 years old 6600slide 3.2 autofocus camera is far more better than current nokia c7 fullfocus camera!
this is one epic memo, no sweet-talk at all, straight to the point and brutal honesty with Nokia and its stand. that was awesome to read and great to finally see Nokia realising its true position. now that they have realised their position they hopefully can change their ways and come back with the awesome products they used to bring up.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2011Obviously this stephen Elop that said this comment must be an imposter! He is probably a ninja... moreI'm afraid Nokia are falling behind - they are no longer 'awesome'. They are losing market share, as stated and are struggling to produce reliable, competitive devices. As someone who works in the industry i have to say that Nokia DO need to change their strategy. They need to embrace a new platform, such as Windows or android.
So no Nokia are not 'awesome' any more, don't say they are because their devices are outdated and unreliable. Even the CEO now agrees with this - so try to think about what you say and if you don't want people to think your an idiot please think about what you're saying and try to write something more constructive next time.
i am so thankful that finally someone has woken up at nokia.i have been saying this for years but all the guys at nokia did was bury thier heads in sand.i have always used nokia products but given what weve seen in recent times,symbian is mere trash compared with whats out there.my nokia N8 is used primarily for photos and videos and calls.all other functionallity is rubbish compared to what one could get these days.i really hope somethin is done fast or else nokia will soon be a dinosaur with handsets placed in museums.

symbian used to be the king for a decade but no king rules forever. symbian is no longer the king and tomorrow, most probably its going to be dropped by its only manufacturer.

Don't you worry about that. If I don't use special effects for my camera it doesn't mean i'm not up to date. This is silly.
We are arguing over something that neither of us will be able to change.
I like Symbian as it has what "I" need, now if you like Android you shouldn't really be here. Go comment on the new HTC or Xperia Play or Samsung Galaxy S2 or new Google phone, None of them get up to a 100 comment and look at Nokia.
Eventhou you think Nokia sucks you want it to be back on top, cause we all know that they are the best, always have always will be.
Let's wait till tomorrow and see who will be disappointed.
I'm not bashing on IOS or Android. I personally Like Android it's just too much customization. I like simple and straight forward stuff.
I cant believe that this is a memo from Nokia CEO or any CEO.
This so called MEMO, Seems so Fake. Definitely a freak written that. Sorry GSMArena but u r one of the suspect.

i am Nokia Solutions Activator (former P500) in South Africa and respect you Mr S Elop 1st for realizing that we as Nokia have relaxed and taken other for granted. i have realized that consumers are now not just buying phone for the sake of having phones,if its not for staying current ; its all about the trend. most consumers don't use even 30% of the capability of their phones but will pay good money for a smart phone only because of what they heard or saw as a benchmark or the current trend.. ... so with this i plied that we wake up and smell the coffee....... we can rather join the trend and sleep with our enemies then to be burnt off the platform by newcomers.Remember the fact that " PEOPLE think our phones are reliable it doesn't meant they will be loyal"

You are too slow to notice the changing trend in this industry. All All this while, Nokia was too satisfied with their symbian platform. I cant denied that some of the Symbian platform were very powerful like Symbian UIQ and Symbian S90 at many years ago. However, Nokia never roll out from the circle and think out of the box. For example, Symbian is limiting itself to those 3rd party software. Steve Job got inspiration from Sony Ericsson M600 for his 1st iphone. Thats mean he saw some value from Symbian UIQ and those flexibility of symbian compare to linux phone like some Motorola phone. Steve Job only enlarged the feature of the existing feature of Symbian UIQ and big storage like M600 during that time. But all this while Nokia remain at their comfort zone.
Nokia have lot of resource and experience that can drive them to be more competitive. Attack at differentiation, flexibility and cost leadership at the smart phone market. The main purpose is to gain back the market share. Nokia wake up and flight for it.

Can your DICTIONARY do that?
BTW, whether you think the free apps are useful is extremely subjective. Though the fact is, most of the apps on the market are FREE!
Anonymous, 10 Feb 2011don't tell me you think Google Translate is useless....I have my built in Dictionary. :)
I don't want to translate a paragraph which google translate fails to do, from my language to English. I just need to translate a word or two.

I use my built in Email app, messaging, calling, office editor, adobe reader, zip manager, BUILD in task manger, built in FILE MANGER!
stuff like that, and not forgetting web browsing...
Which you android fan boys have to pay for, or download an app for which will slow you 1ghz processor down and eat up your ram.
chester, 10 Feb 2011ha ha ha checkout this news on CEO Stephen Elop's strategy to continue with MeeGo
