Good news for me N9 owner .. hopefully this can knock some sense to Nokia BOD .. if it can't, still good news for me .. N9 will be truly the last greatest phone from Nokia, and perhaps in two years time I can sell it double the price at E-Bay, because of the 'limited' edition status that it has ..
put that aside, I do believe that this is something that has been planned .. Elop and Nokia BOD is fully aware on the impact .. things just happened nicely and everything just fall nice in it's place ..
1) N9 will be success - to show that Nokia has tried ..
2) Lumia will be a failure - to point out that the top management to be blame (Elop) ..
3) Nokia will fire Elop (but still fire Elop doesn't released Nokia from whatever agreement that made with Microsoft earlier, basically Elop has already done his job)
4) Nokia can't no longer sustain by it's own, because so many investment made on Lumia .. so can't continue innovate independently ( means that we can say goodbye to symbian and meego or whatsoever)
5) Microsoft come forward giving some irresistable offer to Nokia .. Nokia will succumb to the offer, and because of recent failure, public reaction (and govt of Finland) will be directed to Microsoft instead .. Nokia seems to be a victim here ..
7) Nokia (not just certain division, but the whole company) will then become Microsoft Division
8) Microsoft pull back OEM licenses from other manufacturer
9) Microsoft introduce Microsoft phone, so their brand will not only tied to OS, but to hardware as well .. they will become like Apple ..
bottom line is .. Microsoft total acquasition of Nokia seems inevitable .. Microsoft wanted to be Apple so much that they will do anything to get it done .. next year, we might see a Phone with only Microsoft logo on it .. using Nokia hardware and expertise .. this is not as bad as what we might think, as I bet we will still see remnants of Nokia genius in both the software and harware design .. as a consumer, I don't mind that ..
I'll just leave this here...
So, are we to believe the company behind the product or the analysts with absolutely no statistics to back up their claims? I'd say former myself.
Owned 2 Nokias,last month again I bought Nokia C5-03.Somehow I am disappointed with the unit and I think Nokia is not the same reliable Nokia.
Well.. most phones don't sell themselves. Haven't seen 1 piece of advertisement outside of internet. Not even 1.
Customers want phone with best and all specification but and Nokia Lumia it's lack these all.
Nokia Lumia 800 & Nokia N9
Nokia Lumia 800 & Nokia N8
So you see clearly by specifications Nokia N9 and Nokia N8 (inc.it's ultimate camera phone) are the winners! On Nokia N8 just fix Symbian OS stability and add even single but more powerful processor and RAM plus bigger screen and you will see that even with Symbian OS Nokia can be more popular than with WP 7.5 OS. Also MeeGo it's ultimate OS, when played in store with Nokia N9 unfortunately Nokia refused MeeGo so you got result what you deserved I will not buy Nokia N9 because phone no have future.
Almost 14 years how I used Nokia handset but I will not buy any Nokia phone with lack some specification and crap camera sensor/lens.
Again - I not against Window Phone 7.5 OS but you must add all specifications had Android or Symbian phones and must use same as Nokia N8 or better photo camera lens/sensor.
anyway nokia with wp will incerease the competitions among the OS . It will make android even better .
meego is the way to go, Nokia... loving the n9... should make more meego os phone...
all it is sooo normal. the next move: microsoft will buy nokia with a few bucks. so classical move to destroy a company and buy it for a few bucks
Anonymous, 23 Nov 2011as a polite question to the nokia die hards /hard core fans. If nokia's symbian operating s... moreUntil apple came along, then google. Symbian was all there really was. No one knew anything else. I think nokia just got too comfy symbian was all there was (for the mainstream user). They just had no idea what apple had up their sleeve and of course then android turns up.. thats just the way i see it anyway.
tricked n97 user, 22 Nov 2011haha. this is the best news i've had all month :d shure feels good...payback is great, huh nok... moreDon't be like that, Nokia's are the bomb!!! everyone wants one..... that was 5 years ago. Nokia's own fault for thinking they all that.Even 5 years ago my Motorola E2 ROKR was better then any similarly priced Nokia. I remember in 2004 I got the first phone to use a micro SD card. Or Transflash as it was known as then. It was a Motorola E398. When I went to a cell phone shop to get a bigger capacity card the clown that helped me was a big Nokia fan. Telling me the MMC or what ever outdated format Nokia was using will be the future and my phones card is to small and is a dead end. Micro sd is the only format in use today.
So what say you Nokia fanboys????????
I love android. But Lumia 800 is somewhat different. Unlike all its siblings that have already been in market, lumia 800 has big potential to grow. Nokia should educate their costumers about WP since many people in this country still don't know what WP is. The situation is slightly common with the first appearance of android in market, only WP is a bit too late. I will go for meego, only if Nokia continue their support for it
one strange article and everybody is against Nokia again and the site gets 200 comments lol... well played gsmarena
p.s now just tell me how can anyone comment on something which isn't even released yet
hope they send elop to hell... and concentrate on meego, Symbian and maybe Android. Nokia is still one of best Hardware developer.
Things go for this at the begging of Nokia and microsoft partnership because windows on PC is something diffent from WPhones..
WP UI is the worst at the market right now..
Some big squares and the list isn't the future..!!
And of course is 'closed'..
All fanandroids are happy for 2 reasons:
1.They want Nokia with their OS OR
2.They want Nokia 'die'..
Nothing of this gonna happen..!!
Either Nokia - Google want this for a million reasons..
All we love Nokia are happy for 2 reasons:
1.Nokia will continue MeeGo and Symbian OS's..
2.Change CEO with someone who know what the best
for company.. (MeeGo , Symbian)
As i wrote on some other posts Nokia will understand
some day that mr.E wants and looks for microsoft good
and not for Nokia.. Nokia World 2011 was a party for him and his favour company and no for Nokia..
So,Nokia must continue with MeeGo and Symbian OS's
because both of them are the future..
Sack Stephen Elop, 22 Nov 2011Everyone knew this would happen, especially Stephen Elop. Nokia needs to kick him out and get ... moreI wonder if you've ever used a Windows phone because if you had you'd realise that is alot better than Symbian, and as for asking for a real leader, i think Nokia got one. Imagine if they kept running there out of date software, they'd nearly be gone already so i think showed real strength to cut out the dead wood and go for a software that has really moved foward recently. As i actually work with phones every day i get to see what people want and need and what works best, at the minute other then the iphone theres not many better than the 800.
