AnonD-112, 11 Feb 2011NOOO!!! Nokia has just lost a valuable customer. Shame on you Nokia....Good choice......
good decission! lets see. i think nokia and microsoft will be back to the right track.
I juzt wish N0kia picked Meeg0 0ver WP7..! Hayyyzt.. Well, letz juzt see what will dey c0me up..! Haha! XD
Nokia was doing well because of poor choices.
Everyone saw it, and nobody on nokia's end would listen.
Microsoft had his eye on nokia a long time ago. So they send over a guy who claims to bring nokia back on track. But the truth is he'll destory Nokia and leave it over to the wolves to take over the diffirent parts that make up Nokia corp.
So sad to see another european company go down because of Microsoft
ECONOMICTIMES report snippet:
Neil Mawston of London-based Strategy Analytics said Microsoft was the big winner in the partnership, by teaming up with the biggest mobile hardware vendor in the world. ``In terms of expanding their distribution reach, this is a huge win for Microsoft,'' he said.
For Nokia the deal leaves uncertainty about what will happen to its current Symbian operating platform. Mawston said he expects it to be phased out within two years and ``completely, or at least mostly, replaced by Windows Phone.''
Nokia's share price plunged more than 8 percent to euro7.46 ($10.15) Helsinki after the announcement.
He forgot to mention 'We will bring consumers crashes, lags, blue screens, no free software, payment for updates and more microsoft shit!'
Amit, 11 Feb 2011If a sea-change was really inevitable..then I must say that Nokia choosed the partner wrong. ... moreyeah nokia choose wrong person.. time to support samsung.. welcome new king (samsung)
Savor, 11 Feb 2011Nokia is like Motorola 2-3 years ago. Both have always been great at making phones and have pl... moreAgree with Savor. Nokia now facing the problem with their os. Symbian cannot compete with android and ios. Nokia must speed up to face the critical environment. Both of the giants waked up and cooperation. WP7 is good os if they can take off the limitations.
Gonna be one heck of an ecosystem! Android doesn't stand a chance against the combined forces of these two giants. Nokia has just given Microsoft the breakthrough it needed for its platform. See if they don't revolutionise the way our phones connect to our PC's!
Symbian update 2 at 80% finished. Qt gui still ongoing.
Nokia has become a victim of Microsoft's strategic plan.
Microsoft got the ultimate benefit of having a ex-microsoft employee in nokia.
Microsoft will gain everything from this but nokia is going to lose more & more...
Im an Android user. I feel bad because Nokia chose Win7.
Im stucked with having inferior hardware and useless camera.
So sad.Why NOkia, whY!
I feel like Microsoft uses Nokia as a selling jumpper to increase market sells! Im sure after Nokia got dry out, they simply don't give a s-h-i-t to it.....what a stupid move Nokia...i was hoping u find a solution, but not like this....
Blackberry and to some extend Apple were just made the future kings of the high-end smartphones world.
And there were those who say "money can't buy everything"
K, 11 Feb 2011Didn't N8 outsold all those new WP7 devices? Well surely there should be enough resources to c... moreIf a sea-change was really inevitable..then I must say that Nokia choosed the partner wrong.
Its said that among the phone cos. Nokia is the highest spender on Business Intelligence......is this what their decision after applying their intelligence in their analysis!! I wonder how!!!
And see....E7...theier supposed-to-be-next-prime-seller...is based on Symbian..and its still to face market(in most areas)!!!
Samsung has the potential to be no. 1.....it somehow standardized (after Apple) the whole smartphone market....specially at lowering the price and making them affordable for masses but still giving out quality..
