WP is around 2% of smartphone users
So with 59% of WP, nokia only owned about 1.08% of the market.
I won't call that a success. Especially when you spends billions of dollars in marketing and giving away free for your flagship model. Even that, you only manage 18% more than unknowns htc titans and samsung focus?
Lol, you must be kidding me
Indian curry, 22 Aug 2012 Nokia phones are way too ugly. iPhone4S is the most sexy. 9 our if 10 girls have iPhone, if ... moreNothing at all about the iphone is sexy. Not the small screen on the large surface, not the dinky build, not the limited ios and certainly not Siri.
9 out of 10 girls really? In your imagination that is?
Or did you perhaps mean that 9/10 iphone users are girls (not women) cause they belive anything sellers would tell them to buy?
Sorry to disappoint but there are so many gays and fashionistas out there, so I'm pretty sure it's evenly spread between male and female owners with little, or no, knowledge of the better options out there.
Back to the actual topic. Good for WP and good for Nokia. Nokia takes half the WP market in a few months and WP doubles it sales.
What I'd like to see is a solution based on what Motorola does with their androids, including webtop and all the docking possibilities to launch webtop.
So basically a WP8 phone with Windows RT or 8 installed and Windows RT could then be selected to launch when the phone is docked in a Lapdock or tablet (like Asus padfone) or just connected to a screen and keyboard.
lol what?, 22 Aug 2012Well actually its not sad lol, its pretty threatening for Android and iOS, and Sammy and Apple... more"You are comparing 5 years of market share of Android & iOS with 5 months of WP"
Actually wp is almost two years old...
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2012Unless M$ and Nokia come up with something like "Xbox portable", I won't buy WP. ... moredo you make such unreasonable demands with android or ios ? besides one persons unreasonable demand wont decide what a company makes.
Two giants are increasingly leading in the market, Sony and Nokia. While Apple and Samsung ate busy busting their butts in ther court, these two giants ate busy creating wonderful gadgets. I'm sure Q3 2012 will be INTERESTING.
wow,,, the giant is awaken... Pay your respect to the comeback of the long time legendary king. Proud to be a nokia user.
The time seems unproductive for them might be the effect of their transition from symbian to windows. But still hoping to the rebirth of the symbian&meego despite they announced its end.
lol what?, 22 Aug 2012Well actually its not sad lol, its pretty threatening for Android and iOS, and Sammy and Apple... more5 years of market share of Android? Are you kidding me? In 2007 there were no Android phones nor Tablets!
Nokia is super in hardware, but they have accepted a shitty windows os. But. Feel there is no clarity and newness in windows os it looks one and same and is too boring and you feel you have lost your freedom with the software, i would recommend a android or ios n this one anyway but i wanna see what are blackberry upto, from the initial reports it looks very intresting
what wow, 22 Aug 2012Whatever. Wp is still only 3% of the whole smartphone market. SO whatever. It's no achievement... moreWell actually its not sad lol, its pretty threatening for Android and iOS, and Sammy and Apple are fully aware of it. You are comparing 5 years of market share of Android & iOS with 5 months of WP... Check out the figures from February 2012 and news will dawn on you that WP has captured 15 - 20 percent of market share since then... And that is like a slap on iOS and Android that a half baked restricted OS snatched so much of the market... See the inception figures of Android and you will know WP has fragmented the market twice as quickly as Android did just because of great Nokia design, build quality and user friendliness... WP8 is going to gobble up a large share of market once it is out... Thanks to Nokias great designs and innovations...
Indian curry, 22 Aug 2012 Nokia phones are way too ugly. iPhone4S is the most sexy. 9 our if 10 girls have iPhone, if ... moreonly thing that i-phone have is premium price tag when it comes to build quality and feel even cheap Nokia Asha feels better (considering the price) BTW i-phone looks like a tiny toy in front of my Samsung G-note
i wish there would be a brand here in gsmarena microsoft so that i can look at all the windows phones at once. but then, microsoft is just tagging up with other brands.
Nokia phones are way too ugly. iPhone4S is the most sexy. 9 our if 10 girls have iPhone, if they can afford it or the boyfriend give it to them.
Yeah, but 50% out of 5 or 6% is still low. Nokia should move to Android.
