[deleted post]Apple pays a lot of patent licenses from NOKIA and many others.
Where the hell would apple get the funds to pay if they slash down their prices.
Mmmmm you get the Nokia for free if you take a 2 years contract at Kpn if you take an Iphoneon that contract you have too pay for the phone. Its hard these days too get a phone for free at a normal amount for your subsribtion. So people choose a cheaper phone.
What a funny article!
Nokia Lumi 8000 "outsells" iPhone 4s? Can you really use word sell when you give something away?
So let's take a closer look at this situation.
1. KPN gives Lunia 800 away! Not sells it! The device itself is FREE!! like in 0 €. With 2 years contract - more about it later. At the same time for iPhone 4S 16 Gb same KPN wants 179,95€ with 2 years contract. Funny how this simple fact is missed in th article.
2. said 2 years contract for Nokia Lumi 8000 is also discounted 50%!! So you pay (again for contract) only 18,75€ per month instead of regular fee of 37,5€ per month. For iPhone 4S bundeled contracts KPN gives NO discount! Surprise surprise. Same contract that will cost you 45€ per month with iPhone 4s 16Gb would constant you with Nokia Lumi 800 only 22,5€
So there you have it the truth about NOKIA Lumi 8000 success!
Operators not only need to give them away for FREE they also have to give discounts for the contracts only to move it! I woulnder who actaully pays for this party? Obviously not NOKIA fans... But rather NOKIA shareholders... So all Nokia FAN Boys and Girls - put you money where you moth is - go and pay for the said phone same amount iPhone costs. And do you sales comparisons/charts then...
This phone is amazing, have been using it for a month, works like a charm, doesn't hand or slow down ever.
Very reliable & well built phone.
n 95, 07 Dec 2011apple is doing exactly the same thing with iphone...making hype about every new product,but it... moreeven after so much fall in shares they are still No.1 and you need dual core for what playing angry bird, 1080p video recording LOL it's a joke most of android with 1080p video have poor quality than many cheap Nokia phones say c7
n 95, 07 Dec 2011it's so bad taste marketing strategy for nokia...we gonna make people want our new phone beacu... moreIm from holland,
I find this i quite good phone, slightly overpriced but its pretty good
In the netherlands nobody really cares what pone they have aslong it has wifi can play music and such. Most people buy blackberry just for BBM wich i find kind of annoying
If you are interrested everyone calls you a nerd so.
i prefer nerd and awesome phone and go for android :)
Total rubbish phone took mine back after a few days.Hated it.Poor customisation and horrible boring menus.
n 95, 07 Dec 2011it's so bad taste marketing strategy for nokia...we gonna make people want our new phone beacu... morephone experience is subjective.
If you mean better specs = better phone then don't bother with the OS or even brand.
RAZR and SE Arc S have better specs than Nokia's but Nokia is the better seller...
Does this mean that moto and se phones are not good phones?
Selling a mid end for a price of flagship:(
Its amazing that when reality doesn't agree with you, you can just pay a 'journalist' to publish a work of fiction to support whatever you claims are. That, Unfortunately, is what nokia is doing. The harsh reality is that Nokia Lumia is not selling as well as they hoped, and so they have been hard at work to try the convince the public the opposite. Unfortunately for Nokia, everyone in the world already knows this.
[deleted post]and you are nokia ceo or what? i'm just nokia former lover and i don't like the way that company is doing right now
AnonD-16342, 07 Dec 2011Reaalllyyy???????
Then what do you say about Apple with its Iphone???
If what Apple is doi... moreapple is doing exactly the same thing with iphone...making hype about every new product,but it works for their target group...nokia was doing that for n97,n900 and n8...result:they lost market share,stocks are falling down,facilities were closed down etc.
now @lumia 800:i think there's something wrong with screen...oohh it's low res and small one...and where's that full hd video? oohh i forgot it doesn't have dual core cpu...
and yes,i was using wp os,but it's so boring :(
The electronics technology is moving very much ahead of Lumia's world.
by Q2 2012, many quad core handsets with bigger and 90%smarter display screen,... htc zeta, samsung galaxy s3, asus padfone, meizu mx .etc etc.are already on the ways.
lew, 07 Dec 2011who said this was nokia marketing? It's just a news story..just a news...yeah right...
Go Nokia! Changed my 1,5y old Galaxy to Lumia and must say this phone and WP7 rocks! Android feels outdated after using WP.

Then what do you say about Apple with its Iphone???
If what Apple is doing is alright, then Nokia is not doing 2% of the same thing.
Tell me one thing in which the Lumia is not upto the market specs....
what you guys do, is think of some over-powered Samsung crap and talk gibberish...
Tell me which application is providing support for Dual Core CPUs....name me some..then you can talk about the same ol' shit....
Android Gingerbread doesn't support dual core.....
Tizen Takeover, 07 Dec 2011Can't wait for Tizen next year! I'll be jumping ship as soon as the first Tizen phone is relea... morewhere did it say that, I am most interested in the Samsung Intel partnership for the new os, ironically the two are releasing a Samsung Intel powered ice cream sandwich device at CES 2012, can't wait. something tells me this may just be another powered version of the nexus. btw, good news for Nokia.
