"One analyst claims that the Finnish company needs to adopt Google's OS before things get any worse"
Only 1 analyst claims, WOW..!All other Analysts, Researchers are half drunk or died I think, that they didn't thought such a bull****. But this Analyst is a SuperGenius being, that he even knows the Future. Fabulous Mr. Analyst.
SsmartshuaibB, 01 Jul 2013"75% of the
apps in Android are simply
wallpapers, dolphin browsers add
on, launchers,... moreI've seen 20-30 Dolphin add ons, more than one lakh Whatsapp add ons, 3 lakh themes for different launchers, 1 lakh pornographic applications, 30-40 stupid talking tom copies, 10-20 Angry birds series, over 50,000 trojans and marlwares. You've got to kid me by saying Android stocks the best apps, all in all.
All you thinking for Nokia getting Android, its not about Nokia getting Android, its about Android getting Nokia.
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2013Who said anything about launchers?
Live wallpapers are cool, it's a customization but it doe... moreWho said you can't install themes in android???
apps running in background may be a problem for you...but it's why android has true multitasking....
and with all the problems you said...android phones used to be top in battery tests....
And with wp you cant what's running in background android gives you a option to see that....
how do you think live tiles in wp work???
Without doing anything in background huh??? It's just that you cant see what's happening in background in wp...
JBird, 01 Jul 2013Nokia should look to quit forever.391 comments at this article. you must quit your brain
no no no ...nokia shud stay with windows and at the same time replace s40 series with s60... N may b shut down s40 cpmpletly... Windows will pick up for sure and choice of s60 is gonna do wonders ,android n nokia no this cmbination is wrong..
Nokia should adopt android os or it can make jolla sailfish os phones (earlier meego owned by nokia) as it supports android apps. And games too.
If Nokia launches an android phone, I'll buy. I like Lumia phones design. :)
SsmartshuaibB, 01 Jul 2013Who said you need to root to change the launchers???
And what about live wallpapers isn't it ... moreWho said anything about launchers?
Live wallpapers are cool, it's a customization but it doesn't really help in saving battery, it does the exact opposite. Some live wallpapers even requests for phone calls permission.
You can use many launchers to change the look of your device but what if you've 512 MB RAM? It will just slow down the OS. No better optimization.
You can select any browser as your default one, well that's cool but most of them keeps running in the background even after quitting the browser, thus eating battery.
Lots of widgets is cool but it keeps running in the background, affecting user experience.
You can use another keyboard app if the default one isn't enough for you. It's cool.
Lots of notification toggles. It's cool.
Can you install themes like in Symbian on Android? Nope.
Android has cool customization but optimization of the OS is where it's weak.
Current Nokia and Windows Phone users would probably be against this but I'd like to see Nokia make devices running Android in the near future. I like Nokia's designs and build qualities and if they're able to deliver that with high-end specifications then they'd be right up there with Samsung. If this does happen, I can't wait to see what their UI would look like but if they can make it as nice as HTC's (or hopefully even better) then it will be a winner!
The Boy with Red Hat, 01 Jul 2013WoW 350+ comments and stills growingBecause its about "Nokia" :)
Please nokia accept the android . Android is present and future . If you accept it , you will flourish
The question for Nokia is whether their bottom line is better with offering also Android than getting compensated by MS for carrying only Windows. The answer appears to be no. In fact, perhaps it is instead MS that would like to cancel the partnership if it could save that compensation.
The trouble with MS is that it's never first with anything and therefore relegated to catchup at extra costs such as with the XBox. (Is that what Bill G. was thinking of when he recently called MS a well managed company?)
With unified Windows MS is betting on people's willingness to pay extra in order to have the same OS on their phone as on their PC and tablet. It'll probably work to some degree. But not until people have upgraded/renewed their PC and tablet.
well everybody knows what is wrong with Nokia except Nokia itself. Is that something to do with Mr Flop, the CEO or is there something wrong with my spelling. oops
