Really sad to hear of all these people losing their jobs.
Nokia were once THE top mobile manufacturer in the world with great innovative designs and tech.I always had a Nokia (remember being so proud of my first colour mobile-a Nokia back in the day).
Fact is they have been slowly falling behind since Samsung released the peerless(in it's day)D500. Since the concept of smartphones and Android it has developed into an avalanche.
I am now a Samsung device buyer since the D500 due to Sammy constantly raising the bar with their devices and the GS3 looks as though it will do it yet again. That is why it will be my next handset.
This could all have been Nokia's if they had kept on the ball.
The Man, 22 Mar 2012Nokia fails in field of: -CPU ~ Most important -GPU ~ Most important -RAM ~ Most important ... moreCurrently the os on which nokia phones are running ,do nt require the hardware that u think is the best today. Nokia had 680mhz cpu since 2006 ,when most competition had very less,bcoz that much only symbian needed. So its all about the need.
android plus sony vita OS is coming...hahaha :p
The Man, 22 Mar 2012Your name justifies that your accusation is false Because I9100 never lags i have Galaxy Note... more Hey u ! Nokia is already the greatest mobile company , by a large margin ! 15 yrs of hands down dominance !
I am wondering How much is the CEO, CFO ,... Upper and Mid management ?
How much will be theyr bonnus ?
Also,... how manny parasitic positions and pseudopositions are per 1 Real Efective Honest and HardWorker,... by HR personel called "WorkerBee" ?
What was their averidge pay / hour ? Benefits ?
That's messed up. Way to bite the hand that feeds you, Elop! sure, they'll cut costs, but at the cost of quality. Sounds like they are downsizing to only design and zero production.
I bought my N8 as a USA market model, built in Finland and have had zero issues. I know they use Foxconn for at least Asian market before this. Now it'll probably be the main manufacture for all markets. Foxconn can't even build their own pc mobos with decent quality. Foxconn's employees are also way overworked. Worker burnout equals build quality flaws.
DON'T DO IT, NOKIA!!!
I would expect Foxconn employees to strike like those of Cort Guitars in Korea did.
AnonD-10882, 22 Mar 2012i have used 12 phones and 11 of them were nokia and since there app store lacked in new apps i... moreYour name justifies that your accusation is false
Because I9100 never lags i have Galaxy Note which is a little bit better than S2 so stop posting false accusation to make Nokia great which is not... We all know that you know that.
For Nokia to even think of this, i think new ideas are lacking. I have been a Nokia fan for more than 10 years now and I feel they need to employ fresh idea infusion , and not laying people off.
i have used 12 phones and 11 of them were nokia and since there app store lacked in new apps i had to buy sgs2 and honestly i never had any problem with symbian at all.......and im still waiting till nokia produces a good phone.......after using samsung i learnt a lesson that nokia is the best when it comes to quality and samsung is nothing and samsung only produces products with quantity like dual cores and still it lags.........i know that android is the best but windows is the future and i knw nokia is going to bring something special and remember every1 who says nokia should bring a tablet there are rumours saying that nokia tablet with windows 8 is on its way and thats going to replace most of the laptops.......i love nokia and always been a loyal customer and jsut waiting till they improve their appstore and develop symbian as well as windows and they would do well and mr elop should be sacked
I'm fan of u since 12 years ago but I'm sorry I let you go for new excited n powerful device n OS.
Nokia fails in field of:
-CPU ~ Most important
-GPU ~ Most important
-RAM ~ Most important (Except in N9 1 Gigabytes RAM)
-Internal Storage (Except N9 but no microSD)
+ Wins in MP size of Camera and stand still pics(video recording still lag in very low light)
They still left behind the competition they have to act like Apple and start to import Exynos chip for their phones
instead of doing these useless cost effective actions,nokia should pay great attention to its current belle and meego platforms.if nokia makes a great revolution in its symbian field-(especially)i think that nokia can get its old customers back and can make its current customers happy with their current expensive devices.its great that nokia is now windows but it should never be forgotten that nokia made its fame through symbian and its not a good thing that nokia is ignoring its symbian customers.especially the customers having NOKIA N8 are much worried about their current firmwares.Nokia can again become the most popular phone maker indeed.just a little but proper attention!
nokia should stick to wp and make the best quality smartphone , many people buy nokia cause they guarantee a quality device and it always speak for itself just look at the whole of the lumia range , and this coming from a htc sensation and bb9860 user who just had experienced wp on a lumia 800 for just a couple of weeks . the only strange thing i found out is that you have to press the buttons on 710 but the 610 have better buttons :P but anyways greetings from holland !!!! and go NOKIA !
well this is a bit of a worry. i am considering a windows phone. so are we going to see a change in nokia. or are they going down the kermit.
all in all i do hope they bounce back to what they were in the 90's.
onwards and upwards Nokia.
Nokia lost their customer n they already move to Android or BlackBerry.
Improve the quality not quantity and also choose the right OS.
Nokia still has 130 thousand employees left. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia

You made some very good points...the Booklet 3G, Tablets and the ARM CPUs / chips. ... moreThey are true though! I mean even Ericsson have their own flavor of ARM called NovaThor yet Nokia has NOTHING!
I honestly don't know what their strategy is. But judging from the competition, Nokia seem to be heading towards the wrong direction.
As of right now they offer an endless variety of cheap looking, low tech phones with arbitrary features utterly unrelated to current market demand. People (Some People) still buy Nokia due to brand loyalty.
So how long until this market loyalty comes to an end?
Samsung, HTC, Apple, SE have moved on. People are now well acquainted with modern smarphones such as the iPhone, the Galaxy, the Desire etc. What does Nokia have to offer these days?? Where is their ecosystem? Where is the Product lineup to cover People's modern needs????
Apple has the macbook, the iPad and the iPhone
Samsung has the Netbook, the Galaxy Tab and the Galaxy S2
Sony Ericsson has the Vaio, the PS3, the PSP Vita and the Experia
WHAT SORT OF ECOSYSTEM DOES NOKIA HAVE??? OLD TECH LUMIAs AND ASHAs??
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NOKIA!! DO SOMETHING!!!!
