Smedsrud, 28 Mar 2012I can confirm that the audio quality is superb after this update! Just installed it on my Blac... moreThe audio is perfect as well, it's just that the camera has gotten totally buggy with the new firmware.
What do you call innovation? Putting 5 cores for a phone and that just to save battery? The number of cores and the other specs have nothing to do with the daily life and the purpose for the phone. I would love to buy a WP or replace my old nokia with a 701 but I'm going for Sony XS,and there wont be a big difference for me because it's all about optimisation, and those phones have it! And getting the phone just for some specs is so chieldish, and its stupid to think that every one is going to buy a high specs flagship phone for the daily life usage... Every one is going for a affordable good phone that will satisfy their needs and Nokia is good at making phones for the ordinary buyer you can't deny it.
I am sure Nokia will come up with the product which is more competitive in the market, be it specification be it hardware design.
I am expecting a lot from Samsung as well from its Galaxy flagship. lets see.
Nokia also has new phones in their line up eg: Snow, and Nokia Tablet etc, etc.
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2012That comment would make sense, if it wouldn't have been for Nokia making the best Windows Phon... moreI agree with you that Nokia do make the best windows 7 phones and if I wanted a windows phone they would be the only choice. But like you Im droid.
With pureview I cant see that as being a decider in the battle. Apple and Samsung could easily match that screen with one of there own.
Iphone is going down the drain, nothing interesting and new innovation still the same interface, same OS same itune sync shit... Look at ipad 3 and you know what I mean, Nothing much to talk about.So I bet they are going to lose lots of market share if they don't come out something 'Steve' magic in iphone5. Galaxy is going to eat onto iphone market share, including a new trends with a larger screen like 'Note'!
I think what we are seeing is normal.
Nokia is still fresh to windows phone.
Lumia series are the introduction of wp to Nokia.
I think Nokia will make agood name when it is deeply integrated and understand completely WP.
I just wish that Apollo won't come disappointing to us.
Dave, 28 Mar 2012Yeah they will have all that but the rest of the companies will have far superior phones just ... moreThat comment would make sense, if it wouldn't have been for Nokia making the best Windows Phone devices. In my opinion, Windows Phone is more original and intuïtive than either ios or android. Nokia also holds the patents to PureView tech... and so I think that the battle is only starting. (i am currently using a Samsung Galaxy s2, so don't call me a Nokia fanboy).
AnonD-3234, 28 Mar 2012Ya you can compare the specs its straight which is the best and which is the worst .Even they ... moreYou cannot compare these two phones at all, they are in a different price league and also have been releaced 6 to 12 months apart. your argument is totaly invalid
AnonD-3234, 28 Mar 2012Ya you can compare the specs its straight which is the best and which is the worst .Even they ... moreMan it isn't always about how many cores you have. most applications, can!t even use all of the four cores, except the op. system. It!s about optimization. For ex. android is very nice, you can customize it much, but you must sacrifice your battery life, and you must have a strong processor, while at others like Symbian, you have greater battery life, and improved stability, no lagging etc....hope you understand what I try to say. btw I have an lg optimus one, and it's enough for me...i don't need quad cores. so everybody can decide what he want's
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2012just buy the nokia n9 same design, not any of windows phone problemsyour right N9 better . i owned WP and i don't like it...
AnonD-40848, 28 Mar 2012LOL, ure comparing new generation HTCs vs OlD lumias? Let windows phone apollo come out then ... moreYa you can compare the specs its straight which is the best and which is the worst .Even they have dual cores still Nokia will not reach the level and it'll be more tougher when other companies like samsung and Sony will launch their quad cores THEN WHAT WILL HAPPEN !! JUST IMAGINE NOKIA !!!
AnonD-40848, 28 Mar 2012LOL, ure comparing new generation HTCs vs OlD lumias? Let windows phone apollo come out then ... moreYeah they will have all that but the rest of the companies will have far superior phones just wait to see what the iphone 5 and Galaxy S 3 will have. There is no way Nokia can compete!
Anonymous, 28 Mar 2012just buy the nokia n9 same design, not any of windows phone problemsWhat problems?

just buy the nokia n9 same design, not any of windows phone problems
Well guess what i used android for web browsing ... and i didn't liked it. My buddy has Sony Ericcson Xperia Neo exept the camera nothing is better on it, and lets not even talk about how fluid WP7 is.. Wp7 isn't for kids who like cores it's a phone for daily use without the slim comming from your face when seeing dual core and quad core. And lets face it only use of these "Quad cores" is for playing, let me be clear i love inovation but puting extra cores won't improve the fact that Andorid isn't rightly programed and that they are making phones to use the power to play CoD MW (just giving an example don't now try where to dl it -.-). Andorid is cool but exept the pure "horse power" nothing is in it. Symbian and WP7 are OS'es for the future, Apple and Andorid will soon become "gaming devices".
