Damn you Nokia, instead of firing ITs, just sack your CEO and join the Android club.
Fools,they are so kind,they are giving chance to other companies to exist.Imagine L920,L820,L620 & L510 running Android os.
& Lo! Every other Company making Android will Quit :D
Imagine Swipe ui with android os on L920.
Samsung will be raped Instantly :D :D :D
Nokia arnt aloud to make android phones as per there conract with windows......

Anonymous, 18 Jan 2013...not mean, just tired to ear all the nokiafans keeping talking crap about symbian and meego ... moreLast financial year Nokia sold the second most number of phones, beaten only by Samsung. That does not sound like a company that is about to disappear.
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2013you're so mean!amp....not mean, just tired to ear all the nokiafans keeping talking crap about symbian and meego and blablabla... this is the reality: nokia is done! full-stop! no symbian, no meego, no crapy anna-belle wtf even the names where so ridiculous! c'mon the all world is choosing android or apple!! because they are simply the best! is so hard to admit for this nokiafans?! you were the best in the '90 fine! hat off, now the business is change and wrong decision in wrong times make the company sinking, that's it.

Anonymous, 17 Jan 2013The time when they had to sell their HQ should have been a warning sign to them. I think when ... moreyes,....but is too late bro! and btw let't don't forget that nokia have not so ever Hardware building factory for what concerne the screen!(that is the 90% of the phone user experience)... screen manufacters are only few! Samsung, LG, Sony, Sharp, Hitachi, so even that they have to pay looot of money to buy screen from these company... They are really f@@@ed up!
birdie, 17 Jan 2013I don't understand, isn't Lumia line sold well ? I'm not WP user, but I think Lumia line do... moreThe lay offs are the continuation of Nokia's plans to restructure itself. Nokia's shares are slowly growing. These lay offs have nothing to do with whether the company is selling.
The time when they had to sell their HQ should have been a warning sign to them. I think when your company is not doing good, its not the best time to try and adopt a not so mature OS like windows phone 8. Especially if its their only option for the high end(yes, they have still have s40 but thats not where their profit mainly comes). I think they could have offered smartphones with more successful OS(like android) while still keeping their windows phone 8 lumia line. Listen to what the consumers want, nokia. Now is not the time to be close-minded. Be open to other options
I wonder few years ago when Google started the Android program and went to knock the Nokia doors (leader maximum of the phone market at that time) and the bosses of Nokia closed the door in face to Google laughing about the Google ideas... LOL probably now the same bosses has been transfer to work in some mines plant in Siberia! after they basically send the one time leader company to the bottom of the scale!! c'mon guys, nowadays even never ear Chinese phone companies they make more interesting phones than nokia! LOL
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2013I'd transfer some money to Nokia if they made a Android phone, WP does nadda for me or anyone ... moreActually it "does nothing" for you BECAUSE of the weak sales and low market penetration. If WP was the dominating OS, you would be saying the same thing about Android right now.
Android's dominance is the result of good timing and luck. Says nothing about the OS itself.
I'd transfer some money to Nokia if they made a Android phone, WP does nadda for me or anyone I know, weak sauce like its sales show.
bye bye bye bye nooookia!!!! I think is time for gsmarena to even remove the link nokia on the left of the page! LOL... it make the home page so '90, almoust vintage... LOL
