Nokia is really going down even here in Saudia Arabia the trade mark is all ready forgoten next to Apple and Samsung
Nokia is still selling many many phones nowadays. However, the profit on these models is not enough to feed their management. Their salaries are too high and they are inefficient. I had a ex-colleague from Nokia and I found him extremely talkative and useless. His salary was much much higher than others but he was really junk.
Matt, 05 Dec 2012I really don't understand why Nokia choose to make only Window Phone but not Android. Well, it... morebecause android is to mainstream...all phone want using android os.. people will boring.. its good nokia want using windows , different than other...
people dont have choice but to use android because all phone using android ..
nokia..please try only one androids handset..please!!!
from your fan in south east asia...
ravi, 04 Dec 2012plz nokia think like androidbecause ... android already like symbian.. open source... just not much customize theme and effect2 like android have
if app developer can make more apps for symbian and WP .. nokia still can survive... dont blame nokia, nokia only make phone... blame developer..why not make apps for symbian and WP ...
they afraid to make apps because only android and ios control the world... if people know there more apps on symb and wp ... people will buy symb and wp phone..
I really don't understand why Nokia choose to make only Window Phone but not Android. Well, it's not like Nokia is the only one that use Window Phone. I understand that Nokia doesn't want to use Android since a lot of phone companies are using it, but Other companies still can use Window Phone OS like Nokia after it gets popular, so what is the different between that. Nokia can even produce both Window Phone and Androil... just like Sumsung, HTC... etc

Nokia won't die that fast, the nokia+android may not happen too. A fighter won't bow down to a enemy. Nokia might be on a struggle but i believe that they will be back sooner or later. We all know that great companies face this kind of situations. :)
Nokia is struggling and toiling hard. The fruits of hardwork is sweet. Hope Nokia will suceed and be a world leader once again. Then a newer and better Headquarter building will come up again.
Nokia is at the begining of its end. Nokia decided to abandon the Maimo OS which was very good. Did not adopt Android. Went in with Windows all a string of stupid decisions. Backberry will be followed by Nokia unless they come up with a block buster soon.
All those euros won't help them out of the mess. In many developing countries like china, india and indonesia, people will think twice to buy WP8,coz its just too overpriced with relatively standart spec. My friend bought android, dual core, 8 mp camera, IPS screen,only 170 $. He can even change its theme so its look like WP8.BB is a bit lucky here, in Indonesia, people still buy their devices coz they're connected to BBM.having PIN in indonesia is almost like having cellphone number. Furthermore BB10 will have some cool features, like free call and video. Nokia was once the king of cellphone in Indonesia, really a King.too bad for them they definitely fail now.too bad...
WP will never pay off. It won´t help NOKIA to survive. Nokia is gotta choose android and symbian, by focusing in those two OS´s they will survive
apple police, 04 Dec 2012What he said is true. If Nokia made Android phones, they will be smoking android like Samsung... moreIs that why their sales figures for the lumia series was so piss poor? Because they have "loyal customers"? If they did indeed have "so many" loyal customers they would be boastful about their Lumia sales. So far only a select few countries(Small markets) I might add have sold out of the Lumia 920. The US still has plenty of Lumia 920. In fact The Lumia 920 isn't even in the top 10 smartphones in the UK according to uSwitch.

Nokia fanboys always says if nokia have good in hardware. which hardware made by nokia, can you are show me please?
CPU? Camera? Display Screen? Etc.. Etc..
Nokia is good in choosing hardware but not manufacture of HW like samsung, sony, lg.
Dorian, 05 Dec 2012Yes, you are right... plus outdated technology! I don't like Nokia, because, Im not blind... ... moreThen how come you can get a JiaYu G3 for $240, with HD 4,5" display, dual core, gorilla glass, 2750 mAH battery, awesome 8 MP camera and pretty much everything that a Galaxy S2 has, but for twice the price of a G3? You think that what you have has a fair price? That's not how the market works.
Looking at Nokia's Q3 report:
Net operating activities cash: EUR -429 000 000, mostly "outflows related
to restructuring activities."
Net cash reserves: EUR 3 600 000 000
For Q4 hopefully they can take out the "resturcturing outflows", assume a growth in Lumia sales thanks to WP8, and add this new EUR 170 000 000 to have a positive overall result. The potential for a Microsof buyout is always there, but I don't think MS would want to annoy its device partners any more than they already have. And besides, HTC is (arguably) in worse shape than Nokia - maybe MS could snap them up instead!
Nokia HQ just 300 Meters away from My home .... nice place to be in ....but really sad to hear that they sold it ....
glennthera, 04 Dec 2012NOkia had a monopolistic rule with their crappy Symbian phones when there were no major rivals... moreYes, you are right... plus outdated technology!
I don't like Nokia, because, Im not blind...
So... i know quad is better than dual, and how is possible old dual arm Nokia more expensive than new quad from competitions?
Nokia is only OLD MATRIX BRAND, nothing more!
