lubbalots, 13 Feb 2011Android fanboys, here is the reason why Nokia did not choose Google.
Questions and answers ... moreNo. Just no.
Elop chose WP7 because he was a Microsoft guy prior to getting the job as CEO of Nokia. He became CEO becuase he was elected by some American investors who demanded an American CEO to lead Nokia.
Microsoft's WP7 doesn't sell and they needed a boost. They saw this opportunity in Nokia. Microsoft has more to gain on this partnership than Nokia. Elop dumped Symbian and put MeeGo as an experimental platform. Elop didn't do what's best for Nokia; he did what is best for Microsoft.
Ask these guys and I'm pretty sure that a lot of them will agree with me.
if nokia tap into WP7, android should be coming soon. PLS NOKIA PLS.
nishajbest, 12 Feb 2011Why Windows why not Android? :(No way man!
Nokia will not use Android, because android is fully controlled by the big G.
WP7 is not that good but at least your data are stealth.
Do not drop Meego, but merge Meego with Symbian, as those two using QT language.
nokia is behind then htc,afterall so long time nokia is going to on windows..
[deleted post]Android is used by many many mobile manufacturers while only nokia uses symbian.. So take that too..
diogovechio, 12 Feb 2011Come on Nokia, just get rid of this iOS-like limitations of WP7 and this will be my next phone. (:Agree with that one. I would so buy one too
diogovechio, 12 Feb 2011Come on Nokia, just get rid of this iOS-like limitations of WP7 and this will be my next phone. (:U never use I phone4 b4 right? Nokia... It's so funny.
I think, this will be the first step to be popular again. Great job, Nokia! Its nice and simple... I hope its processor is 1Ghz...
How about Ovi Maps? I hope they also port it to WP 7. This is the only reason why I held on with my Nokia phone.
Nokia had it made by a friggin CEO spy from another company. They killed you, Nokia!
[deleted post]you can't just exclude and include as you wish. We can both play this game.
If you exclude the voice and legs from Michael Jackson i think kevin federline will be more successful.
laxis, 13 Feb 2011Some people here are so foolish that they think Microsoft took over Nokia. Funny. The revered ... moreI COMPLETELY AGREE with u, WP7 with NOKIA is the future, because through Nokia, wp7 will have access through global users which not limited to high end buyer but also low end. For nokia, through wp7, for the first time they will have OS that can actually compete and beat the dominance of android and ios. WP7 OS is very fast, smooth, stable, stylish, elegant, creative, and beautiful. Not to mention developer support, for the note up to now, application for wp7 has reached 8000 applications and growing, this growing faster than android, similar to ios. So yessss, I can see myself looking at wp7 succes in the next one year. I make the same predictions before 2007 even before apple announce iphone that if apple come out with the mobile phone or smartphone it will bring big wave and shock and change the entire industry and game plan. Anyone want to bet with me? NOKIA solid hardware and WP7 advance OS? Sure why not. THANKS
as long as this OS keeps an open platform,then it's good..maybe some upgrade on phone specs and this new concept is ready to rock!
I have always dreamed of a Windows running Nokia phone .
Unfortunately I just bought N8 on contract =(
Come on Nokia we are waiting for your healthy come back against android and iOS . Prove yourself again and make them to go away from peoples mind. Get back your market share soon . But dont forget to produce windows mobiles at average cost. Its everyone's wish. As because on many country only middle class people are moree . :-):-) also everyone's like is to get a s40 nokia phone wit task manager as in sony ericsson . Pls release a mob like that this year !!!
OMG !!! why choose WM7 ?? why not android ?? c'mon man, i think android still better than WM7
how about with symbian ??
Some people here are so foolish that they think Microsoft took over Nokia. Funny. The revered and praised Android is still outsold by the hated Symbian. Hard to digest the truth right?
Nokia will still be using Android-outselling-Symbian OS and they'll use Windows in their high end phones. Scary.
Windows has so much potential and it's still in early years. Now that the world's biggest Phone company use it, development will go at breakneck speed.
Microsoft sure knows how to make OS (WINDOWS7) and couple that with Nokia who actually support their products and care about its users.
Android is the present. WindowsPhone7 is the future. Oh wait at present Symbian outsells Android.
you know what, my father works in Nokia and he told me that nokia is really dying right now being bombarded with low market sales despite the great number of unit phones sold. actually, the number did not speak it out for the real standing of nokia. it is just numbers of the sold units in which it accounts all of the low to mid range phones being sold to asia in cheap prices. this means that nokia only holds true that they are the monster when it comes to numbers of sold phones compare to samsung. but, the real truth behind is these numbers are just NUMBERS. when we will disregard this, it is really Samsung sitting on the thrown long before we realize it. they have sold 10 million of high end Galaxy phone in which the flagship N8 of nokia did not even took a half. they have sold tablets 2-3 million. mid range phones are around 5-6 million. while the N8 is selling, samsung is also earning for they made the N8'S processor. when Microsoft suffered for low profit, it was samsung who carried them to what they are now after samsung realeased the Omnia 7 and the WP7 phones. android credits its royalty to samsung also, earning its thrown over symbian is because of the success of the Galaxy S followed by other manufacturers. Nokia is threatened with Samsung's statement to overtake Nokia and take the first place in no time. Nokia, left with no choice, marries with Microsoft to save the company from drowning.
The battle of devices has now become a war of ecosystem, where ecosystem include not only the hardware and software of the device, but developers, applications, ecommerce, advertising, search, social applications, location-bassed services, unifield communications and many other thing....
