Nokia should have upgraded symbian to Android/IOS standards. I think many of u will agree to that? WP is just squeezing a f@@k load of cash from Nokia.
I was a die hard fan of Nokia( still own the N8). Now i only use my SGS3 and SGN8000.
Open ur f#kn eyes Nokia.!!!!!

While there are aspects of WP8 that are... moreThats the ultimate,Nokia hardware and Android and Pureview.
I have read the article again and it does seem Nokia is been stifled by Microsoft therefore Nokia is stuck..If this clause of not allowing Nokia to use any other O/S is true then they are both stifling each other..
Nokia made a mistake by exclusively using the WP OS.
While there are aspects of WP8 that are appealing, Microsoft's repeated abandonment of their customers when it comes time to update products (looking at you Lumia 900 and your half-assed WP7.8 update), closed eco-system (like Apple), and limited hardware support (no quad core, 1080p, etc) is a deal killer. Also I own a Windows 8 laptop, and the OS sucks. I am on my phone way more than my laptop, why would I trust them to do any better with their mobile OS?
I would buy an android powered Lumia in a heartbeat, especially if it had pureview technology.
agree with this analysis. The only reason I am holding a samsung device is for Android, the moment Nokia Joins Android my palm will get a new feel in-sha-allah.
MX2013, 01 Jul 2013WP fans says that Windows phone is a new operating system and will eventually be better. Windo... moreYour right about all you've said right up to the part that Android is better than Windows, they both have their pros and cons. But you fail to understand that at 2003 when windows for phones came out there was no other OS that was competing with windows, so windows started to set the bar for other smartphones in their own way. So when android came in they have had the advantage of hindsight keeping in mind that android was not an instant hit at 2007, it started getting popular around late 2010; 2011. Google had symbian, IOS, and Blackberry OS to learn from and therefore they revolutionized the whole OS technology taking alot of its style and look from IOS. Thats why android is so popular, cuz of its resemblance to Iphones (knowing that iphones were the most popular thing around that 2007 till now). In the case of windows they also had the privileged of hindsight and brought in windows phone 7 and 8, they wanted to be unique and not follow the status quo of android or ios, with a little time windows will pick up after it brings out new versions of its windows phone.
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2013Either Nokia need to buckle down and get Windows 8 up to scratch or consider one of the newer ... moreHave to agree plus i also W8 could go midrange and those newer O/S go flagship.I know Symbian is going but that platform ticked so many boxes ,hell i used it from 2003 - 2011. plus still use one as my daily alarm clock.
Either Nokia need to buckle down and get Windows 8 up to scratch or consider one of the newer O/S ie Sailfish, Firefox or Meego restart.
What? Android in Nokia? Wow! It's going to kill Samsung. Of course, ios is ios.
jbpianist28, 01 Jul 2013Why is everyone saying Nokia ho android? I'm hoping they want, its a terrible is full of bugs ... moreI think people want Nokia or Microsoft to get off their backsides and get the W8 platform up to scratch with alternatives music players with reverb or video players etc..It would be nice to have more flexibility even file manager..Its been what 3 years now and Android was more advanced at this stage but the trouble as far as i know is its Microsoft limitations..
Money is not the problem so what is? I want to go W8 but without apps i want like surround sound and reverb (even paid for i always support devs)then i cant leave Samsung with their concert hall setting...There are many wanting their fave apps free or paid for but W8 is not supporting these wishes..I had W710 which is old now but the amount of presses to do something felt unecessary also.
I always like/love and support Nokia since 1998 but W8 needs just that bit more yet before i swap.
MICROsoft is a prosTITUTE,selfish and cunning,who dont feel any shame in lying down on any bed for daily bread.
And NOKIA is a poor unlucky chap trapped in her cage.
windows 8 shares bed with hts..sammy..even with huweii and cheats on NOKIA..
>>After GOOGLE acquired MOTOROLA..ace rival MICROsoft went desperate and eyed for acquiring another mobile brand to counter GOOGLE move..they eyed for NOKIA..then top reputed company in the world..MicroS made clear plans to bring down NOKIA to its heels and then they can easily claim its stakes..As a first step,MS sent their TRUMP CARD MR. ELOPE..to NOKIA's camp.. and earned him the CEO post of NOKIA..REST IS HISTORY..Nokia lossing its SHARES..thrown out MEEGO and n9..selled its headquarters to raise budget..killed SYMBIAN..plans to stick onLY with WINDOWS(Y???..)..As a humble admirer of NOKIA(1100,N73,N82,N8)..am not telling android is better than windows or vice versa,or fight over the THOUSAND number OF APPS those platforms have..or argue with the amount of MALware they possess..I always wished to HAVE a NOKIA-ANDROID PHONE with carl ziss optics..piece of cake..
but alas!! sad for FINLAND and NOKIA..recent rumours says that lot of companies are in talks to acquire NOKIA..including MS and some chinese brands..
LET GOD SAVE NOKIA NOW.
> Despite pressure from share holders why MR.ELPO
is not intrested in plan B.HE is the traitor.just a black sheep EXecuting cheap tricks from MS(HIS LOYAL COMPANY)..none is asking those BLACKBERRY or APPLE to come out with ANDroid..just need a NOKIA android device..just like old N-SERIES..NOKIA should have taken another letter from the English alphabet for a series of android phones,in parallel with their LUMIAS...if it ever happens..i firmly believe that those sammys,,htccs,and other budding brands will have a run for their money..and NOKIA will rise again in the market.(Remember SONY)PLEASE DONT KILL YOURSELF NOKIA..Those publicity nonsense stunts dont do much favour for LUMIAS..
>>>MR. ELOPE is not new in bringing down companies..he was the CIO for "Boston Chicken" in 1992, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 1998.(Courtsy:WIKI)..If NOKIA goes down in the current pace..it can be another golden feather in MR. ELOPS head..he can be very proud of bringing one of the top reputed companies to bankrupcy..
>>that painter had to sacrifice only his ear for a prostitute..but NOKIA is now lossing its sole itself..
>>i humbly request GSMARENA to start a campaign that can bring this matter to NOKIA topheads..if ever happen can become a noble cause in the mobile world..
and why the opinion of "Pierre Ferragu of Bernstein Research" is so important? today we know that we can pay everyone to give us opinion what we want... dream on google
Why is everyone saying Nokia ho android? I'm hoping they want, its a terrible is full of bugs and laggy, WP is the future you know
They should go for it. Alot of people would buy a Nokia phone powered by Android.
Here in the middle east no one uses WP8 phone all are moving towards IOS or Android so it's so clear that WP8 has failed on so many levels and didn't prove it's self with it handicapped functions so lame in my opinion ..
