Tim, 27 Mar 2013Were you born in 2008? Nokia might have been many things but not a copycat. Nokia is one of biggest copycats i already said it.They started to copy design from Ericsson phones as soon as they became popular and even after merger with Sony. Did you know Nokia didnt even make 1st symbian phone,but Ericsson did it not to mention it was 1st smartphone and it was 1st touchscreen phone.Also Ericsson was 1st to make name "smartphone" which Nokia later copycat for their symbian phones s60 and s80. I'm not fanboy of any brand heck i think being fan of anything is bad. Same thing is with samsung it copycats design of sony phone cameras .And in the end they even failed with their camera and now even they are using sony cameras. Sony ericsson also copycat siemens in some stuff.But no one copycats more than nokia and apple and then proclaim they invented whatever they were copying.

Iskander, 27 Mar 2013Their entire Lumia line is a copy of LG's BL40...Pooooooh
Could be India..
iOS here is for the Elite only, well kind of.
and BB for the corporate ones mostly..
its always been a Android against WP war in the smartphone section here..
others may include mostly Middle Eastern or South East Asian countries i assume.
(That is if the statement is true!)
touch311, 27 Mar 2013I'll try one of WP if they still doing well next year.Oh. Start saving now then
Hahaha...WP outsell iOS and blackberry. Today Nokia fanboys have a BIG smile.
koos, 27 Mar 2013WP does defintely not have the market share in south africa, here blackberry has 90% share of ... moreyou are talking about the obsolete BBOS 7. lets talk something new, here in Nigeria, Blackberry has lost momentum in the market. the leading horses have taken on..... Android, iOS and WP. BB is only trolling behind, maybe someday they will regain traction once more but that won't be soooo easy
Iskander, 27 Mar 2013Their entire Lumia line is a copy of LG's BL40...No, the lumia series started with Lumia 800. Lumia 800 is a N9 with windows phone. N9's design is based on N8 and that's all.
Iskander, 27 Mar 2013Their entire Lumia line is a copy of LG's BL40...Kind of a stretch don't you think? It's got sharp corners, yes, but the angles aren't even close. It's very square. Looking at it from the front on I think it actually looks more like an HTC 8x. It's very tall like the 8x and has a similar style bezel, albiet without the "pillowy" angles of the back of the phone.
If Nokia can bring the eos we all are hoping for, we might see a windows phone revolution. IOS can never be a worthy competitor of android, but wp can.
Anonymous, 27 Mar 2013notification center homescreen real wallpapers real torrent app file manager themes other than... morenotification center - yes
homescreen real wallpapers - So long as you could also choose the black background, yes
real torrent app - sure, could be useful
file manager - maybe, seems trivial to me, but that's just me.
themes other than tiles or a major upgrade to the tiles other than juss diffrent sizes. - not really liking that idea
abillity to custimize search button to whatever site you please - yes, would love that
Instagram - No, really hope it never comes to Windows phone
a form of jailbreaking thats allowed from factory so ther no problem upgrading - I'm not sure if this would ever happen
PC, 27 Mar 2013What do you mean they are competing with something that is not available? BlackBerry and iPhon... moreOutselling Blackberry in many markets at this time isn't difficult. The Lumia line is available in about all major markets at the moment, while Blackberry's Z10 (let alone Q10) is available only in very few right at this moment. Fact is that very few will buy a Blackberry device that is not going to get BB10 as OS, just like the Lumia line with WP7 caved in the quarter before the launch of WP8 Lumia's. There's nothing amazing about WP outselling BB in 26 markets. To be more prcise, it is amazing it's outselling BB in ONLY 26 markets. The writing's on the wall really.
