As if Microsoft was going to continue developing WM further than they did. If they told Google to go take a hike, they might have been in the same position as Nokia were when they decided to drop Windows Phone OS. As for asking the consumers, just think of all the companies that sell millions of phones. Did Apple ask their fans before dropping the headphone jack, or the home button, or the fingerprint scanner on the X, or when they adopted wireless charging? I don't think they did. Listening to consumers is important, but that is usually after they've bought your product. Those who give suggestions to companies are usually geeks or fans, which may not necessarily represent the general consumers.
I really liked Siemens back then. Not the most user friendly user interface but they were pretty damn good back then
really liked the siemens phones had two, the c55 and the Mc60, its a pitty that they gave up.
So we all wanna act like Segem and Bird never existed??? Alright then...
I want to see Mitsubishi and it's Trium line of Phones to return.
Ericsson definitely, I'd love to see their take on the modern smartphone.
Microsoft with Lumia.
Nah, it's a joke, I don't miss it.
Bring back Motorola of old, instead of just truncated "Moto"
I personally miss the Siemens mobile phones.....miss them now and will miss them forever.....
I can assure you from personal use that the toshiba TG01 was far froma "superphone",it was horrible to use,ran hot,would shut down for days for no traceable reason etc etc,i was still on monthly contract with orange then,they gave me 3 other phones + £300 to end my contract early,because the TG01's they had pushed at their enterprise and loyal public members was costing them so much money !
The £300 went towards buying my first htc hd2 outright,best decision i could have made at the time,still my favourite phone yet,still use one of them every now and again,along with other early top specers like S/E p800/910i series,shows how little phones have actualy changed in13 years,new phones do nothing new,just same old tricks just done faster,but at much higher price,students still cannot get over how good lucas snes games look on an old p800,tell them its 13 years old and they think your lieing,ive even had them argue that its an old p800 body with more up to date internals !
If there was one firm i would like to see again,its the old htc,befote they lost the plot,back to when they use to ask users what we wanted and then went and tried to do precisely that,which is how we ended up with the legendary hd2 in the first place,if only they had carried on asking and listening they probably wouldnt be bankrupt now,mind you,i put some of the blame for htc's demise on google,htc should have told them to go take a hike a decade ago..
Actually I miss any euro brand in premium category. Its like they just give up even if they are capable. Nokia got eaten by microsoft, surely they will bring something soon. Siemens could bring great phone anytime, yet they don't. Existing alcatel is also hard to satisfy in high end...
