AnonD-49883, 11 Apr 2012no u r totally wrong in this discussion..nokia ly denied the offer from google to use android.... moreno, your the one who's wrong the 1st reason why they didn't teamed up because google and nokia didn't want to trash their own products/services like nokia(ovi) map, nokia(ovi) store etc. Coz if they want to be partners one of them should surrender those things... If you're really following the mobile industry you should know that, elop's statement is just to show to everyone that they are higher and if they will team up, google should be the one to drop those services... But of course that can't be helped they both invest too much money to cater those to their own subscribers...

Nokia propo... moreno u r totally wrong in this discussion..nokia ly denied the offer from google to use android..the reason for tat is nokia decided to be unique..not to be one among those who use android..everytime in this discussion u r spreading wrong information..u should see the interview of elop's answer regarding the choice of os they choose..but one wrong step elop has don is the denied support for meego..
im a nokia fanatic since i had an encounter with their phone. but i never trolled to any brands or competitors. if you love your phone just love them. if you dont laike the phone, dont buy them.
Man they are going for a big push in the U.S. I kept asking myself why Microsoft wasn't going for a big change with all the money it's got.
I see this is the big change, and considering the combination of the software and hardware on this phone I gotta say Apple and Google will feel a threat.
This is what will eventually push Microsoft and Nokia to a 15, 20% market share in the U.S.
This is why I like Nokia. Nokia provides best customer service. Nokia doesn't ignore customers like Samsung and others. After all Nokia is born independent and other dependent companies like Samsung made Nokia dependent. Samsung is nothing without sucking Android. Nokia is the best...
I'm really impressed with Nokia's response to this issue.
When iphone 4 had connection issues Apple accused the costumers for holding the phone wrong.. hmmm..
as usual, news about nokia tops the comment section. both nokia lovers and haters.
i like nokia even if i'm using xperia. and i'd want to buy a lumia.
Save for the 610, the lumia series sucks and the lumia 900 is the lamest flagship model I have ever seen. Nokia will realy regret giving up on symbian and meego
Every phone has its own imperfections.It is the way that those flaws are dealt with that makes the difference.
Can't wait having it in Europe, problem, we will have to pay more than the americans, strange because USA people are richer than Europeans, can anybody understand that?
This is because i like nokia.. Nokia is not an ignorant like samsung..
Anonymous, 11 Apr 2012Nokia doing this is an act of good faith. Kinda like a retail store having no hassle return p... moreyeah, it's a good deed from Nokia to pay up their customers for buying Lumia..
profit for buyer? yes
profit for Nokia? no
I do like Nokia's way for turning from Symbian into another OS, and they are not into Android, but WP7.. but the thing is, we are waiting for Microsoft to build a mighty WP8 or anything, and Nokia is suffered because of this waiting..
Nokia can make a mighty flagship phone as long the OS is great, like Symbian(good ol' times)
I dont know how long Nokia can stand, but I believe, someday Nokia will grab back it's glory and sitting in the throne once again..
AnonD-43825, 11 Apr 2012so in other words, nokia is a big threat to other phone companies if google had approved the ... moreIn straight terms, you have not understood the facts or you are totally biased towards Nokia.
Please, do not twist the facts.
No company is threat to another in Mobile tech industry, especially with the evolving trends and technology. a small firm like Huawei could make their mark with andorid o/s, why dont you consider the positive aspect in that?
In My opinion Nokia would have been better than what it is now, that doesnt mean it can beat the crap out of other manufacturers.
nokia nokia nokia a monster lumia is back again to rule the market.................. andriod, apple samsung ,htc or any other sucks.................. inspite of loosing the shares........... still nokia is a fan favourite.. no ine can beat nokia

Its been discussed several time why nokia and android did not mate. Nokia proposed and uneven an irrational changes to Goolgle, for which google Denied the alliance with Nokia. Case closed.
The other side of the story - MS offered heavy funds to Nokia for WP platform. I'd say thats a wise investment from MS, by picking up the Top mobile manufacturer and making it as an alliance.
Now coming to your imagination of Nokia using Android, lets assume if that was feasible, Nokia stands a better chance than other manufacturers. Reasons, good will and 'reach' of Nokia , mind you i am not pointing about Market share here, its the broad establishment of Nokia on a global scale.
Andorid offers endless Customisations, Nokia with its capabilities would have easily accomplished a unique flavour of android than others.
Nokia with a problem and buggy handset?Get away!!Ha ha ha buggy just like the poor lumia 800.Awsome user experience nokia!
